If you’ve received your results in Scotland and they aren’t quite what you need, then you can see if you are eligible for clearing right now through Track on the UCAS website.
Students also have the option of applying again for entry next year and courses beginning in 2015 are now available to view on the UCAS website.
In 2013, 1,550 Scottish students found a place through Clearing, and 1,335 of those went to institutions in Scotland.
