Here is everything you need to know as thousands of degree courses become available
Entering the process allows students who do not have a university or college offer to look for free spaces on alternative courses.
They are allowed to apply for a course, as long as their A-level results meet the requirements.
The process opened on 5 July and closes on 23 October.
Who can use it?
Students who miss out on the grades needed for a conditional offer, or who did not receive any offers when they first applied through Ucas, can use the service to secure a place.
It is also open to those who applied late to Ucas after 30 June, as well as those who have declined their firm university place so they can be released to go through Clearing.
You need to register online with Ucas and make an application, if you have not already.
Ucas will send you a welcome email, with details of how to access Track on the Ucas website – which goes live at 8am on A-level results day – and your Clearing number, which universities will ask for.
If you originally only applied for one course for the reduced fee of £18, you’ll have to pay an additional £6 to apply through Clearing.
