LLB Overview

What is Adjustment?

Adjustment is a service UCAS provides to give students who have achieved better exam results than expected the chance to apply to a different university.

You may have been offered a conditional or unconditional offer from one or more universities, but if you outperform and decide that you want to apply for a different law degree at a more prestigious university, you can do so providing that there are available spaces.

Bear in mind that places on the law courses at some of the top UK law schools might be full by this stage. However, since some students with conditional offers to these universities may not have achieved the grades they wanted and have to go through clearing, in which case, there could be some spaces.

How does UCAS Adjustment for law work?

  1. First, you must register for Adjustment on the UCAS website.
  2. Next, you should contact the admissions offices of the universities you’re interested in applying to to see if there are any available spaces
  3. Then you should make a decision on the university you wish to switch to
  4. You will receive a confirmation letter from the university

When does UCAS Adjustment open?

You can use UCAS Adjustment for law from 13th – 31st August. We advise you to act quickly, because spaces will fill up fast.
