    I met my offer for my firm, but say I changed my mind and I want to do a gap year how do I go about doing this?
    Do I contact my uni, or can I just withdraw my ucas application??

    You'll need to contact the uni because when you firmed them you entered an agreement that you'll be going to that university if you met their requirements. They may release you if they're happy with your reasons but they're under no obligation to do so.

    I'm pretty sure you can just withdraw, but you would need to re-apply. Do you want to defer your place?

    Give your firm a call and find out what's going on with your firm.

    I had this last year for Durham as I wanted to take a gap year & reapply for a different course/uni. What I did was withdraw my UCAS application and student finance applications, then I phoned Durham to let them know that's what I had done.

    HOWEVER. if you still want to do that course at that uni, but just to defer a year, it's definitely worth phoning them first to see if they could defer your place for next year's entry!

    Good luck!

    They've got a new VC who's super strict on grades

    It means they either haven't decided or haven't told UCAS yet, They might want to make you an offer for a different course - ring your firm once you have your grades.

    Guys anyone on here know how long I should have to wait to get my CAS letter? Will the uni send it in automatically or do I have to call them up or something?
    You have to contact them - at least that's what I did. It's safe to assume that it will take a couple of weeks as they will be producing a large volume of CAS statements.

    Can I call a uni and ask about a course that's not on clearing to see if they'd let me on that instead or is it a waste of time?

    Who cares!? It's your future, not theirs! You got into your top Uni and that's all that matters. You should be happy, and so should they.

    Congratulations on getting into your first choice
    I'm sorry that you are finding hard to tell your parents, In all honesty it is up to you, but so long as you got in to the University, I'm sure they'd be still proud of you.

    Congratulations

    If you got into your first choice there is absolutely no reason to be embarrassed! Just as those going through Clearing shouldn't feel embarrassed either.

    Now you just need to keep up the hard work at University! I'm sure your parents will be proud.

    Where are you going?
