    You don't 'accept' the informal offer... when you add it on track that's you accepting it. But, you're allowed to phone as many uni's as you want, you're just only allowed to add one choice. I read out my results to them and they didn't ask for my GCSE results...
    some unis found out my results via my clearing number but remember that computer systems will always fail ha
    Cheeers! Haha, yeah stupid computers >_<

    Hello

    I'm posting here because, I would like to have some advice, I applied online for a place through clearing at Goldsmith College, a couple of weeks ago. A few days after, I received a mail from them, telling me that I should send an application through ucas and today I received another mail from them a personal statement and the grade I've gotten from the Baccalaureat. My question is, should I send the personal statement and my grade or through ucas? By the way, I haven't sent any application to university.

    Thanks for your help

    I'd suggest doing both - send it direct to Goldsmiths so they've got it ASAP but try adding it through UCAS too so that it's on the system electronically (and not just in someone's email account)

    If you apply through UCAS then once you are entered into Clearing your clearing number will show on UCAS Track.

    Hello,

    I just wanted to give you some update, I send my personal statement and grades this morning and Goldsmith answered me, they told me everything would be forwarded to the admissions officer for consideration. So I guess it's fine.
    But now, I have another question, I would like to apply through ucas, I filled everything but there isn't a section concerning reference and I don't know why. Did something similar happen to someone? Also, I would like to know if it's possible to send an application without reference? And I have one last question, in the choice section, it is said that I can't add a choice since clearing has begun, so what happen, then? I call the university, I give them my clearing number and that's it?

    By the way, the reason why I wasn't too keen on sending my personal statement through ucas for goldsmiths is because I'm applying for a degree in media and modern literature while for other universities I'm applying for a degree in journalism. So the personal statement I made for goldsmiths is a bit different from the one I made for the other.

    results

    no offer

    in clearing

    call university hotlines and/or departments

    tell them grades

    they can see your UCAS

    they may ask additional questions

    they may ask for an additional simple PS

    if they refuse then repeat with another university

    one accepts

    they make you an offer

    you accept verbally

    you enter this in ucas

    they then confirm in ucas
    haha you deserve 20 likes
