UCAS Clearing
Students from Scotland

Scottish Confirmation & Clearing

We recognise that the circumstances of the last year have been extremely challenging for school pupils in the senior phase and we want to stress our support and confidence in using teacher assessed performance as the basis for entry into Strathclyde courses during academic year 2021/22.

This year verified grades will be confirmed by UCAS on 10 August. We are not able to confirm offers or otherwise act on unofficial grade information as provided by applicants or their schools until we receive your verified grades on 10 August. We recognise this will feel like a long wait and will be frustrating for some but this is the only way we can ensure fairness for everyone.

We understand that this interim period will be particularly worrying for any applicant who believes they may have missed the requirements of their conditional undergraduate offer. We do not recommend that you take any further action, such as withdrawing your application, because you may still be eligible for a place. You will find this out once your results are confirmed on 10 August.

Whilst we can’t confirm offers until results day on 10 August, we are still available to give general information, advice and guidance to any applicant, as well as to those learners who are planning to apply to university in the future.

Please contact our UK student recruitment team if you require any advice and guidance, ugenquiries@strath.ac.uk.
