Okay so I know August is a way away, but I'm just wondering about my possibilities.
So if I don't get the grades to get to my 1st Choice University (ABB) and I go into clearing (this is because I'm not overly keen on my insurance choice) can I change my course? I have currently applied to study English however, I know to get a place in clearing to study English is near impossible, so can I change my course if worst comes to worst? I would have considered reapplying next year, but don't want to risk paying the higher fees.
Also just to ask a bit about clearing, how often would you find decent universities in there? By this I mean, maybe top 40? And would this be achievable if say I only slipped up 1 grade and ended up with BBB - obviously dependant on the course? Although it would be a social science or humanity based, maybe Sociology, or Politics/international relations.

"Decent" universities do certainly apply in clearing, although which ones and for what courses can totally change each year. The grades they are willing to accept may well be the same as their typical offer for the course, so BBB would be okay for some universities but not for others. If you get a copy of the Independent on results day you'll know exactly what is on offer.
