We normally contact you with a decision on your Clearing application within 3 working days, but if you apply through Clearing on 16 or 17 August, we should contact you by email with a decision within 24 hours. Check your emails regularly as we may also contact you if we need more information before making a decision, or to let you know if an interview is required before an offer can be made.
There is no formal deadline but demand for places is high so we recommend you add Essex as your Clearing choice on UCAS asap, preferably within 24 hours. The sooner you do this, the sooner you will receive confirmation of your place and be able to apply for accommodation.
If you have taken A-levels or RQF BTEC Nationals and will be getting your results on Thursday 16 August, you can add Essex as your Clearing choice on UCAS Track from 3pm.
