What is UCAS Extra?

Posted on Jul 01, 2016

If you applied for five courses on your UCAS application and didn’t manage to secure any offers, or rejected the ones you received, then UCAS Extra gives you a second chance to apply for a place. With Extra though, you can only apply for one course at a time, using the Track tool on the UCAS website. UCAS Extra begins at the end of February and runs until the end of June.

Once you have decided on the course you would like to apply for, you will enter the details into the Track system, and UCAS will send your application to the university. If you are offered a place through Extra and accept it, this means you are committed to that institution and you cannot apply anywhere else.

If you decide to turn the offer down, or the university/college turns you down, you can apply for a different course through UCAS Extra, if there is still enough time. If you do not receive any offers through UCAS Extra then you have another chance to apply for courses through Clearing after exam results are out.
