A ‘late application’ is any made after the main UCAS deadline – so that is any submitted after 26 January and before 5 July, when Clearing officially opens.
Primary page content
Applications made in July, August or September are done through Clearing, even if you are not waiting for A-level results.
If you haven’t applied to any institutions yet this academic year but have decided you’d like to go to university in 2020, you will need to register with UCAS.
Once you are registered, UCAS will email you with your Clearing number and details of how to access Track, which is the UCAS tool that shows you how any applications are progressing. UCAS will also advise you on your next steps, and there is lots of useful advice on its website.

How Covid-19 could affect Clearing
