Results 2020

Following the UK government announcement on 17 August, to support the Class of 2020, the University of Leicester will accept mock and centre assessed grades in order that you can secure a place with us. If you already have an offer with us through Clearing, you still have your place.

We’re guaranteeing a space for every medical and healthcare student this year that met their grades and selected us as their firm choice. In being the first UK university to do so, we believe this is a fair outcome for this cohort and future cohorts who shouldn’t see places reduced due to the current situation. Students don’t need to take any action.

We look forward to you starting your exciting new journey at the University of Leicester.

What is Clearing

Clearing is simply the system that matches applicants who don’t have an offer with universities that still have places available. It's a great way to find another course if you didn't get the grades you expected and you missed out on your Firm or Insurance choice. You'll be able to find universities with vacancies and contact them directly to see if they will offer you a place.

Frequently asked questions

 

What is Clearing?

Clearing is simply the system that matches applicants who don’t have an offer with universities that still have places available. It's a great way to find another course if you didn't get the grades you expected and you missed out on your Firm or Insurance choice. You'll be able to find universities with vacancies and contact them directly to see if they will offer you a place.

When does Clearing begin and end?

The Clearing period runs from the start of July to the end of September. If you’re waiting for A-level results, you can start using Clearing as soon as you receive your grades on Thursday 13 August 2020. But if you already have your grades, you can start using Clearing from 6 July. And although the really intensive Clearing activity happens on Results Day and immediately afterwards, universities continue to advertise available spaces until term starts.
