    Does anyone know how long it takes for Universities to release you into clearing if you reject them? And could I call like now to tell them I no longer wish to be on the course?

    UCAS forbid universities from talking to applicants who are placed elsewhere.

    Obviously it happens but there's a good chance (especially on results day) that universities will refuse to commit to anything for an applicant that isn't officially in clearing.
    Yeah, they wouldn't make an official one by technicality, but all the unis ive spoken to have said they will happy hold an offer until an applicant is released and they can enter it into UCAS. I thought the same as you but I've been told different from the source now I'm scared

    I just asked this uni and it could take weeks for them to sort it out accordingly to people on here . I'm gonna call up my insurance tomorrow and ask to be rejected so I guess I'll find out whether they're gonna sort it out before Thursday or not :/

    I'm not entirely convinced that that means that you're screwed (even if you missed our conditions, and you won't know for sure about that) - they may have accepted you at their discretion anyway.

    Yeah, I didn't even think 'it's okay, I have my insurance' once when I was working for my exams, I just thought, 'I need to get in my firm, I need to get in my firm, even if it drives me crazy'

    It could take a few weeks for them to release me into clearing? What? That doesn't even make sense. Would anyone recommend me ringing my Uni tomorrow and asking me to be rejected now as I definitely do not want to go there.
