Re-applying for university because of no offers


I am quite nervous that I will receive no offer from the Universities I have selected on UCAS. If I get no offers, is it possible to just submit a new application with different universities.

Also, is it worth contacting the universities that didn't let me in for e.g. Law and asking them to let me in to a different course?

Hi Harry,

You have several options if you don't receive any offers - you can go into UCAS Extra, which you can read more about here:


Alternatively, you can wait for your exam results and go into Clearing in summer.

You can make a new application for the 2019 UCAS cycle once you've received your results.

My advice is to focus on getting the best possible exam results at this stage.

Good luck.
