UCAS Extra

If you are unlucky enough not to receive any offers from any of your choices, or you have a change of heart and decide to decline any offers you do have, UCAS Extra comes into play.

Once you have an offer and accept it, you become Unconditional Firm (UF) or Conditional Firm (CF) for that university.

UCAS Extra currently does not allow you to prepare a new on-line personal statement or reference – this can be a real drawback if you originally applied for a medical degree and now wish to make an Extra application for a radically different course.

While UCAS Extra is not a major issue for most students and only a tiny fraction of students apply through Extra, it can be highly successful for some students who want a second chance and who do not want to wait until Clearing starts in July.
