Can I reapply through Clearing?

Can you reapply for a different university course through Clearing if you have failed a year and have sub par/average grades?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hi Dony,

You can make one application a year to UCAS. Your UCAS application must include a full history of your education including an explanation about a failed year at university. If you apply now you should check with universities whether your application is likely to be accepted. You can of course enter Clearing in August.

You should also talk to tutors at your current university to see if they can give you some advice.

Good luck,
