Teenagers face scramble for clearing places

Teenagers who fall just short of their predicted A-level grades next week are set to face a scramble for the last remaining top university places.

The University of Cambridge will not be taking part in clearing.

The University of East Anglia said it would have a limited number of places available, but added it was currently seeking "well-qualified applicants" through adjustment.
