Clearing dates for 2024
When does Clearing open? When is Results Day? Here are the important Clearing dates for your diary.
28 February: UCAS Extra opens
If you've not received any university offers for your five choices, you can add another choice using UCAS Extra. It gives you another chance to gain a place at university or college.
If you don't get the offer of a place through Extra, you still have another chance with Clearing.
UCAS Extra runs from 28 February to 5 July. Find out more about UCAS Extra.
