    Just wondering how many people actually got on to their course through clearing? And if so, which course/uni was it? And why did you use clearing? Did you get rejected by all your six choices or did you change your mind about them and declined your offers? Also, what were the general entry requirements and what did you have? Just out of curiosity, thanks

    But you've got unconditional offers! Why are you worrying?

    I'm not :p: I'm just interested

    The only thing I am worrying about is that I might visit and hate all six places :eek: But as long as that's not happening, I'm not really worried

    February and then probably again in March I will have to go twice because some unis have the same dates for their Applicant days. Duh lol

    And thanks for your optimism, I hope I will

    You could try contacting the unis and seeing if they can give you a tour or something on a different day! It won't be as busy as an open day, but you'll probably end up with one person just looking after you so it'll be easier to get questions answered and things.

    And I got onto physics at Nottingham through Clearing. I dropped out of York last year and applied too late for the normal route.

    Oh, cool I thought I'd have to stick with their regular days because they offer for you to see lectures of the course you got offered a place on etc and I thought that sounded great. But maybe I can do that anyway?! I will definitely try and find out, thanks for the tip!
