Courses Guide: University places still open: How to use the course vacancy listings
Sunday 20 September 1992
Note that there is now no division between polytechnics and universities, and that almost all of the polytechnics in the PCAS Guide for Applicants 1992 entry now have university titles, or will shortly have. However, the information here relating to PCAS institutions is presented as it appears in the 1992 entry PCAS Guide.
The lists are compiled by PCAS and UCCA from information supplied by their institutions, and are published for the benefit of applicants in Clearing. Detailed Clearing instructions are sent by PCAS and UCCA to those applicants concerned, these being applicants who have applied after 26 May 1992, those without offers and those who have not been offered a place after receipt of their results.
The vacancies are listed under subject headings: these frequently do not correspond exactly with course titles. A course may appear more than once - the course contains a major element of all subjects under which it appears. It may, in fact, be a course in two subjects, or perhaps a combined studies course. It is, therefore, essential that applicants consult the UCCA Handbook and the PCAS Guide for Applicants to check the details of the courses listed. (In the PCAS listing, courses whose codes start with a letter will be degree or DipHE courses, those starting with a number will be HND courses.)
This information is available only from the Independent, or in schools and careers offices via ECCTIS 2000, Campus 2000 and Polytel (former polytechnics only).
Applicants who have applied to UCCA only or to PCAS only and now wish to apply for Clearing in the other system must first register with that system. On their original acknowledgement a supplementary application form was provided for this purpose. New applicants, not in either system to date, need an UCCA / PCAS application form, from their school / college, local careers office, or if necessary from UCCA/FCAS (0242 227788).
PCAS Listings: PCAS can be contacted on 0242 227788 if you have any difficulty with your Clearing application. PCAS applicants must be in possession of their Clearing entry form before they can obtain a place on any of these courses. Course details and actual course titles must be checked against the institution entries in the PCAS Guide.
UCCA Listings: UCCA operates a direct Clearing telephone line on 0242 222460 from 1-25 September between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday. You should use this line if you have a serious problem concerning your application in Clearing. This line should not be used for Clearing vacancy information.
Applicants must consult the UCCA Handbook to check the details of the degree courses listed. The numbers in brackets indicate the minimum points score requirement - calculate your points as follows (counting a maximum of three A-levels): A-level: Grade A = 10 points; B = 8; C = 6; D = 4; E = 2. AS-level: Grade A = 5; B = 4;
C = 3; D = 2; E = 1.
Applicants with other qualifications must check the minimum requirements which apply with the university / college itself.
