What is Adjustment?
When you get your exam results, Adjustment is a chance for you to reconsider where and what you want to study.
You have five days from the date that you achieve the conditions of your first-choice offer (A level results day, in most cases) to register and secure a place through Adjustment.
Your first choice university place will be protected during these five days.
- Check if you are eligible on the UCAS website
If you are, register for the service through UCAS Track.
- Choose your course from our Adjustment course list
Check you have the required qualifications.
- Call our adjustment hotline
Have your exam results and UCAS Personal ID number ready.
- Tell us which course/subject you are interested in
If that course is available through Adjustment and you have the right qualifications, we'll put you through to an Admissions Tutor.
- Be ready to tell us about yourself
If we put you through to an Admissions Tutor, they will want to know about you, your grades and motivations, so be ready to tell us about yourself.
- Make an informed decision
Think of any questions you might want to ask the university to help you make your decision if you get an offer. If we offer you a place, we’ll send you an email to confirm.
If there are no places available
Places may become available over time.
If you are keen to come to Newcastle and there are no vacancies when you first check our course list, it's worth checking again at intervals during the five-day Adjustment period.
The Admissions Tutor will tell you whether you have a place at the end of your call. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail that will include instructions on how to accept your offer.
If you get an offer from us
- Congratulations! We look forward to welcoming you in September
- Can't wait to see what life at Newcastle is like? Book a campus tour now to visit us over the summer
If you do not get an offer
- You are free to consider other universities or stay with your first-choice university
