    Really? That's so surprising! I'd hope it's people who actually applied in the first place because how on earth would you judge a potential doctor over a 2 minute clearing phone call?

    Yeah, I believe it was St George's. I think that's what they generally do- relook over previous applicants they rejected and offer them a place if they got the grades

    You have no proof any offer was made thus you can do nothing but stop being an ass about it. Do you seriously think sueing them is going to make one iota of difference bar really pissing them off and potentially screwing some poor student who was manning the phone line to make a bit of beer money? Pull your finger out and move on.

    This is unfortunate, but you have no basis for any legal action. You had no binding contract with the University and nothing more than a verbal agreement which you cannot even prove occurred.

    Forget it and move on.
    Why was there no contract?
    Cant contracts be verbal agreements?

    This was about 3 years ago but I suppose any course that's not full up or if people fail to make the conditional offer grades then there are spaces that need to be filled. Maybe different uni have different policies.

    Certainly at present its possible to enter medical school via clearing.
