    Hiya guys I am seeking advice on being released from the University of Birmingham.

    How long is it likely to take especially if the course I have an unconditional offer is in clearing?

    I'm still waiting. Fulfilled every condition for my firm, except the one mentioning a CRB check (or DBS, whatever it's called these days). I sent the required forms off today - hopefully it shouldn't be too long. How long can they keep it conditional for?
    Yep, it's the same for me. They have all my forms and everything. I phoned up earlier and was told they didn't have any of my documents & then phoned again and was told that they have them all and it should've come through!
    They did say that as long as you get everything sent off within the next couple of days that it shouldn't matter and it'll stay conditional..

    Hey you will be released in no less than 2-3 hours. Ive released myself from my insurance uni in order to go through clearing for a much better uni hope this helps. All you have to do I call them up and tell them you've declined them

    So you was released after 2 hours of telling them to reject you? I asked mine at around one o'clock and my track still hasn't updated.

    Damn. They said they were working on it as fast as they could (yeah, right). I really need track to be updated by morning else I will lose my offers from clearing.

    How long you generally have to wait until the Uni confirm your place and make response on UCAS? I'm still waiting for Coventry to update so I can go to clearing asap if I failed... I probably need to called them in the morning to figure out what's going on.

    Hi guys really hope one of you can help me out here, i've applied for history at nottingham for my firm choice and ancient history at nottingham for my insurance, so far my insurance place says unconditional on track but my firm choice still says conditional even though i got the grades and met all the requirements - it seems ucas hasnt updated my track at all today - none of my results are listed on my track either... not really sure what to do or who to call tomorrow. Any advice would be so great !! thank youuu

    Should my brother still be waiting for keele to update track? His insurance updated at 8am with an alternative course offer and he has clearing offers which expire tomorrow morning, but he cant add anything until keele refuses him.
    He is nowhere near his offer so it should be easy for them, is this usual?
    Thanks
    Lots of people have been getting in even if they've missed their offers by a lot. He should ring them first thing tomorrow and find out what's going on.

    So there is a chance that i could wake up in the morning and be in clearing? That would be absolutely amazing but knowing my luck, there will be no change to my UCAS. I have myself 2 offers and i am worried that after a certain time, they won't hold onto them anymore.
    If nothing's changed in the morning, get on to all the unis concerned and update them.

    Need 280 points to get into my firm choice and I got A,B and D which obviously is 280 points.

    My insurance said they'd take me if my firm rejected me, but i've met the points and the other requirements to get in to my firm. Is it just a case of its taking a while to update or could something be seriously wrong?
    You need to get in touch with them first thing tomorrow and find out what the problem is.

    Until you've met all the conditions Let them know you've the papers in and ask them how long it will take them to process them.
