    the university i applied to (north) in clearing says they cant take me.
    i got a confirmation email when i applied to clearing at that uni saying i got a place and also the verbal offer on the phone. the head of department checked everything and assured me i have a place
    now someone said i never had one. i have already my accomodation where i live for the universtiy. it was so expensive.
    what do i do

    The clearing system is ridiculous, I got told I had 4 working days to accept on the phone then when I got the email about 5 hours after the call it said 48 hours (over the weekend)!

    Have you called the university directly to see what happened? Do they have your correct records? Maybe they mistyped your UCAS number on their own systems?

    Clearing lines are notoriously rushed - I got a prospectus in the post about 4 weeks late (didn't accept the offer) because they put the wrong postcode and misspelled my address - at least it turned up though - shows the Royal Mail persevered haha!
