Choose Lincoln through UCAS Extra

UCAS Extra is another chance for you to apply to universities. In 2021, the service opens on 25 February and closes on 4 July. If you used all five of your choices on your original UCAS application and you’re not holding an offer, you’ll be able to add an extra 'sixth' choice using UCAS Extra. You can also use the service if you've changed your mind about your original choices after declining offers. This means you don’t have to wait until Clearing and Adjustment in August to secure a university place.

UCAS Extra opens on Thursday 25 February and runs up until Sunday 4 July. Log on to your UCAS Track and you’ll be notified if you’re eligible for an Extra choice. It’s also worth contacting us directly to discuss your application and our available courses.

The UCAS website provides a full list of the programmes that currently have vacancies. 

Further information about the UCAS Extra process can be found on the UCAS website.


From Monday 5 July, Clearing opens for students who are not holding any offers or who decide late to apply for university. A Level Results Day will be on 10 August 2021 – this is when many university applicants get places officially confirmed via UCAS Track. If you don’t secure a place, you can apply through Clearing. You can also apply through Adjustment if you get better grades than expected.
