Admissions Procedures - UCAS
1.171. Admissions will
automatically receive published results from UCAS for a number of
qualifications (see Appendix 1 for a full list).
1.172. Selectors will
make decisions on results in all cases where this is
possible. In programmes of study where offers exceed
available places the Selectors will adopt the following
all applicants who have met or exceeded the offer conditions
ii. Hold all
applicants who have not met the offer conditions.
all applicants who cannot meet the minimum entry requirement of two
A-levels or their equal.
all acceptances and calculate the number of places unfilled, taking
into account those with conditions outstanding but which are likely
to be met.
applicants whose tariff score is closest to the offer made and
continue until all places are filled or it is decided that
applicants with higher qualifications might be found during the
1.173. For programmes
that do not have sufficient offers to fill the available places
allocated, the University will decide at what minimum tariff score
they will accept applicants and will confirm the places of all
applicants up to this threshold.
1.174. Selectors for
under-subscribed programmes of study will, wherever possible,
confirm the place of any applicant who has applied to the
University and who can meet the minimum entry requirement and any
other specific entry requirement.
1.175. Admissions will
advise UCAS of those decisions which have been made based on
meeting or exceeding the conditions of the offer and for which
results have been received. Admissions will e-mail enrolment
information directly to confirmed applicants.
1.176. In addition the
Clearing Call Centre will be able to provide information to
applicants on their status. Applicants who have not yet had a
decision made on their application will be referred by the Call
Centre to Admissions. Admissions will advise callers of the
status of their application and where necessary inform them of any
procedural matters they may need to complete to expedite a
decision, or finalise their position with the institution.
1.177. Results of some
applicant’s assessments may be made available to Admissions prior
to the publication of A2, AS and AVCE results. This applies
particularly to National Diplomas and Access programmes. In
circumstances where such results are sufficient in themselves to
make a decision, i.e. there are no other outstanding conditions the
following procedure will be implemented:
i. The offer
conditions are met or exceeded – applicant’s place confirmed.
ii. The offer
conditions are not met entirely – applicant informed that a
decision will be made when the results of all other applicants are
published and the availability of places is known.
iii. The result
is such that the qualification offered will not be awarded –
applicant advised that their place cannot be confirmed for the
current year of entry. Such applicants will be encouraged to
apply again in the next cycle if they are able to meet the entry
requirement by re-sitting or offering an alternative qualification
and are not successful in obtaining a place elsewhere.
