How do you find out if a course has been in clearing in the past few years?

And if it is does that mean it went into clearing after having already accepted reduced grades from existing offer holders?

I've got the lists going back as far as 2009. What subject and course code are you after?

* And if it is does that mean it went into clearing after having already accepted reduced grades from existing offer holders?*

Basically yes. Some course may have extra vacancies though if for example another course in the same department hasn't recruited and they need extra bums on seats.

Thanks eat - it is L200 - Politics and International Relations

Are you looking for any particular univeristy? It is there in the lists and I will pm you the results later when I have got tea and birthday presents done and dusted - are you looking for anywhere in particular? RG, red brick, post 1992 etc or anywhere and everywhere?

another20 Mon 21-May-18 16:43:17

Yes - Bristol, Leeds, Manchester ....

Feel a bit cheeky for asking but any chance I can get the list too? Nottingham, Loughborough, Lancaster, York? Same course!

No prob will pm you

I so regret not collecting the lists, I had no idea they were unavailable online and my DD is off to Uni this year.

eatyourveg Tue 22-May-18 21:43:40

Skyr2 - more than happy to look something up for you if you want to know about a particular course just pm me the subject and course code

eatyourveg I would be very grateful if you could let me know whether History (V100) was in clearing at Leicester last year or the year before.

eatyourveg Wed 23-May-18 08:13:04

TheSecondOfHerName V100 at Leicester has been in clearing every year going back as far as 2011

Thank you so much.

Oh, this is interesting. Is there nothing online? If not could you take a look at Geography courses please?

NaturalBlondeYeahRight Sat 26-May-18 22:12:04

Evening Veg, can I also ask which RG unis pop up frequently for this history V100 course? We don’t have a plan B. How do you see this stuff?

eatyourveg Mon 28-May-18 17:01:44

Glitterbiscuits what's the course code and which uni or type of uni are you looking at as there are tons and tons of them

NaturalBLondeYeahRight I will send you via pm the list for V100 at RG later this evening - just got back from Swansea radio 1 biggest weekend with ds2 and am knackered smile

I see this stuff because since 2009 when ds1 was first looking at unis, I have kept a copy of the clearing lists which are published as a supplement in the national press on results day. the youngest has gone off to uni now so not sure if I will keep this year's list although I probably will simply out of habit. grin

HesMyLobster Mon 28-May-18 21:13:55

Wow eatyourveg that is forward thinking, I'm so impressed (and wish I'd thought to do it last year!)
I will definitely do the same this year, and the year after ready for DD2's cycle (if she decides she wants to go) and to help friends DC, and hopefully posters on here too.
I had no idea they wouldn't still be available online somewhere.

If you get a minute, would you mind looking at DD's course, Classics Q800 or Q810, I don't expect there to be many places as departments are so small anyway, but it would be good to know.

Thankyou thanks

Wow, that is organised @eatyourveg!

Any chance you could check Huddersfield for journalism courses P501 and P503. Thank you!

glitterbiscuits Mon 28-May-18 21:33:39

Thanks @eatyourveg -L700. DS wants Russell Group unis. But I’d bust be interested in where there may be spaces

Agree you could get a nice little pocket money from anxious parents!

keyboardjellyfish Mon 28-May-18 21:37:48

@eatyourveg, wow, that's seriously amazing!
If you have time, would you mind looking up UWS Community Education L540 and Glasgow University Community Development XL35? Thank you! flowers

eatyourveg Tue 29-May-18 08:13:22

Not ever going to do it for money - happy just to help other mnetters. I was in the same shoes years back - this site is somewhere people go for support so I'm glad to be able to offer it when requested.

Will pm with each of the latest requests

DrivingMissMaisy Tue 29-May-18 08:26:45

eatyourveg what a lovely way of looking at it-it's really kind of you to help us out.
When you have a minute could you send me the same list as you sent NaturalBlonde last night i.e. History V100? Thanks so much!

glitterbiscuits Tue 29-May-18 09:38:12
