Clearing is used by university applicants who have received their exam results but don't yet have a place at university. The Clearing process helps match applicants to university places that are yet to be filled.  

If you've exceeded the entry requirements required for your firm choice, you might be thinking about looking for an alternative course. Adjustment offers you the chance to reconsider where and what you want to study. If you've had a conditional firm choice accepted you could swap your place for one on another course that you'd prefer.
