Clearing Plus was announced back in May. As summer swiftly approaches, getting clarity on the processes your students can get involved in is key.
In short, Clearing Plus means that unplaced applicants (who would have likely entered clearing on results day) can explore courses that UCAS has matched them to, using information they initially inputted on Track, at a range of Universities. Applicants who explore the options Clearing Plus offers will be provided with a button that says ‘I’m interested’, meaning a University can then get in contact with them and provide more information.
The distinct thing about Clearing Plus is the ability for an applicant to move easily between courses and Universities – exploring the wealth of options that are available and easily expressing interest in a course.
From 6 July applicants will be able to enter Clearing Plus through Track, using their normal UCAS account login.

If you have any questions about the way the University of Exeter will be using Clearing Plus, or what this might mean for your students, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
