If an applicant who meets the eligibility criteria does not receive an offer from their chosen region, they will progress through to national clearing.
National clearing will group all remaining candidates into one pool and re-rank them as one cohort through the random process. Then the applicants will be able to rank their programme preferences from those available to go through the matching algorithm again.
In May, each region will determine whether they have any additional IMY3 posts to offer. This will be once they have allocated rotations to all those moving from IMY2 to IMY3 and those accepting a stand-alone IMY3 post.
It is not possible to give any indication until that time whether there will be any need for clearing and, if so, in which regions. Should there be the need for clearing, the following will apply:
Clearing offers will be completed in late-May.
