What does Adjustment mean?

Are your results better than expected?

If all your hard work has paid off and your results are better than predicted, Adjustment gives you the chance to reconsider where and what to study.

As the University of Opportunity, here at Wolverhampton we offer a range of course vacancies in Clearing. This could be your opportunity to get a place on the course you originally wanted, or explore new options. So, what next?

Am I eligible?

You’re eligible for Adjustment if you have:

  • met and exceeded the conditions of your original confirmed offer.

You’re not eligible if:

  • you are confirmed at your firm choice but did not exceed the conditions on offer
  • you have a confirmed place on a changed course offer
  • your original offer was unconditional.

Full terms are available from UCAS Adjustment.

The Adjustment period

Adjustment runs from A-Level results day (19 August) until 31 August.

Your individual Adjustment period starts on 19 August or when your conditional firm choice changes to unconditional firm, whichever is later.

You have five calendar days (five 24 hour periods including Saturday and Sunday) to register and secure an alternative course, if this is what you decide you want to do.

If you do not find a suitable place on a different course, you will remain accepted at your original choice.
