Accept a clearing offer

Q: I have been given a Clearing offer from Liverpool, how do I accept?

  • Log on to UCAS Hub to add a Clearing choice, entering the institution and course details.
  • Under ‘University or college’ add L41 – The University of Liverpool.
  • Add the course you have been made an offer for. If you cannot find the course listed then you may need to select ‘Other’ and type the course code into the ‘Course’ box.
  • If you are still unable to add your Clearing course choice it may be because UCAS is being updated. If this happens then it may take up to 4 hours before you will be able to add your choice. If you are still unable to add your Clearing choice after this time then please contact us via email at clearing@liverpool.ac.uk.
  • Once you have added your Clearing course choice please complete the other required details and submit your choice.

Q: I have been told I need to “refer” myself to you, what does this mean?

Confirmation takes place once exam results are published, which for A levels taken in 2022 will be on August 18. For other qualifications, such as IB and Access, exam results are published in July and we will confirm your place as soon as possible after this.

If you’re an international student we may be waiting for further results beyond your main academic qualifications. Please visit UCAS to check the status of your application and if there are any outstanding documents you need to send to us to confirm your place.

Unsuccessful applicants or still awaiting decision

 

Your decision shows "No decision/ conditional status"

We are carefully considering every application and aim to send all decisions to UCAS no later than Thursday 18 August where we have all the necessary exam results. Please keep checking UCAS through the day for any updates. If you still have not received a decision by 3pm, please call our Results Helpline on 0151 794 8591.

Outstanding results

We may be unable to make a decision on your application as we have not yet received all of your results. These could include GCSEs, Foundation Years and existing qualifications from previous years. If we need any results from you, this should be detailed in your offer. We will also contact you to request any results we have not received that are necessary to confirm your place, so please do check your emails regularly.

Your application has been unsuccessful

We understand that this is a disappointing outcome. Unfortunately, you have not met the minimum requirements for the University and so we are unable to accept you on this occasion. Please find some information below about what you can do next.

Insurance choice university:

If the University of Liverpool was your firm choice university, you should check your status at your insurance choice as they may have been able to accept you. Please confirm this on UCAS.

Clearing:

If you have been unsuccessful at both your Firm and Insurance choice universities, you are now eligible for Clearing. You can browse Clearing vacancies here: search.ucas.com. Or find out more about Clearing vacancies at the University of Liverpool.

Apply again next year:

If you are thinking about resitting your exams to improve your final grades, you could apply again for entry next year. You would need to reapply once UCAS is open again (September), including full details of your resits. Please be advised that any offer made will be conditional on the results of your resits and you will not be guaranteed a place unless you meet these terms. 

You're appealing your grades

Where possible, if you have received your results or the outcome of an appeal by 7 September and your grades meet the acceptance criteria for the programme you are holding an offer for, we will try to confirm your place. However, please note that for a number of programmes, due to capacity restrictions or the need to limit numbers to ensure the best quality student experience, we are unable to accept grade outcomes achieved through appeal for 2022 entry. These currently include Dentistry, Health Sciences, Medicine and Veterinary Science, however that list maybe subject to change. Note also that acceptance levels may vary depending on the programme and additional information such as contextual data, so please contact us when you have received your results.

Can we take your predicted grades into consideration?

My predicted grades are higher than my confirmed grades. Will you consider this when you receive my results?

We base decisions on confirmed grades so cannot consider predicted or provisional grades.

I was originally conditional firm (CF) with Liverpool but I didn’t meet the terms of the offer. My predicted grades are higher than the awarded grades I’ve received. What can I do now?

If you wish to appeal your grade please consult your school or college.

Can I combine my predicted results with my awarded results?

No. Please see above question on how to appeal for more details.
