    Thanks to you and the others for the cheery words.
    I'm actually in a bit of a confusing situation right now.

    I just got that place at Westminster (through adjustment), but also phoned up Goldsmiths... and somehow got a place there too! Except the guy I was with messed up, and right at the end I learned he'd done this entire thing through Clearing. He was eager to finish up (I was in a special situation, and was his first ever call), so he ended before I could explain that I wanted it through adjustment.

    So, I have two questions: I'm already registered for adjustment, can i then cancel that and my current offer to go through Clearing to accept Goldsmiths? Second question: If yes, should I?Thanks a lot!
    Don't worry too much for now.

    Keep ringing.

    If Goldsmiths is still your favourite option this afternoon and you want to take up the place there then ring up again, ask to speak to someone senior and explain that you were made a clearing offer but are actually in adjustment so you need them to take your application out of adjustment so you can take up the offer.

    After 3pm you'll have the option on track to reject that option and you'll be passed on to your insurance.

    If you want to do this before 3pm then you can do it over the phone with UCAS



    It wont appear until 3pm.

    Call universities and get informal offers then add your favourite on track at 3 or later.
    omg thanks sooo much for clarifying!! im scared to DEATHHHH

    HELPPPP GUYS!!! i need to apply through clearing and ucas said im in clearing now but i cannot see the button ''add a clearing choice''??? WTF ??
    You can't add a clearing choice until 3pm. You need to have a verbal offer or a provisional offer in general from the university before adding them in clearing.

    You'll be okay. Did you get into your insurance?
    Call and pester now. Push it and make sure you get the name of whoever you talk to. You have plenty of time. Breathe.
    They said to call again at lunchtime if it hasn't updated. :-( BU took my name, number and grades and they said they might give me a call back after I told them I have written confirmation from Aberystwyth that I will be released.

    There's little you can do but keep pestering them to release you until they get sick of you. Just bombard them until they do

    Wow well done!Don't worry - places wont be gone.NOONE can officially apply through clearing until 3pm...and even so BU are usually advertising places for a couple of weeks after results day.Do you still have the email address of the person your mum spoke to? Email them to let them know you're arranging to get released into clearing and will be applying ASAP and ask if there's anything they can do to reassure you or save a place. Tell them about visiting the other week and having accommodation sorted.
    Thanks And thanks for all the help you've given me! I've told them all that already (I spoke to a course leader or something?) and they took my name and number and said they might give me a call back after I told them I have email confirmation from Aber that I will be getting released. Going to keep refreshing Track til 12 (got nothing else to do) and then give Aber hell if they haven't released me.

    Well luckily I got into Exeter with BBB instead of ABB, probably because the B which was meant to be an A was in Economics wasn't relative, spent 3 hours researching other universities for nothing I guess!
    :party:

    congratulations!

    If it helped you get through the stress of waiting then it was worth it :yes:

    I dont know my grades yet, on my way to get them, but in UCAS track my firm choice offered me Foundation year, something that I will not do. What shall I do? Once i get my results i will be emailing them and calling them.
    Ring them up to discuss your options. They have had several days to think about this decision, so it is likely that they will not change their minds, but a calm and positive chat could help. If you're not happy with a foundation year and they won't budge, ask them to release you into Clearing so that you can find a place you really want.

    Keep us updated if you have time!

    Durham: "You'll find out by Wednesday at the latest."

    Oh gee, thanks. Seems a tad unfair to keep us in suspense for so long.
    Thats great, I wonder what is taking so long, they've had the results since the weekend? Do they give out more offers than other uni's?
