ive changed my mind about goin to uni as i want to go this year but ive not applied or anything. im wondering is it too early to do that clearing thing coz i thought it was made for on results day, or wud it be an advantage to start now? its gonna be quite hard to get the required grades but i reckon with a bit of work i cud get them :rolleyes:

Clearing only starts on results day. I'm not sure if you should have applied to have access to clearing - you need to find that out. Go for it though!

What course and uni were you intending to do? When it comes to clearing depending on the demand for your course they sometimes lower their offers, so there's still hope for you.

I am going to try and offer you some advice without sounding patronising hopefully.

What job do you want to do when you leave university? And secondly why do you want to go to uni?

You can't enter UCAS Extra because you will have had to have declined all offers (and you don't have any) and you can't start on UCAS now because the deadline's gone. Methinks you'll have to hang around until clearing. Though maybe you could contact a university independently...

I just hope you know what you're doing as I would hate you to be another one of them graduates that end up not being able to get a job. Personaly I think it may be a good idea to get a job in sports or do some more AS levels for a year or somthing. Also believe in your self a bit more, if you really want to I am suire you can become a physio it just requires dedication. Years ago I would have said there is no way I could have done a degree course yet alone do well on it.

Yeh, if you contact a uni and say I missed the deadline because I thought I was going to do a gap year is there any chance of holding me a place in clearing, I'm sure they'd be happy to do so.

To help you clearing is usually complete/considered around August/September time, but you could still apply to UCAS

But the next academic year does not start until September/October 2004, therefore you have time for applying/clearing, or visits to uni's

Er...you can still apply to UCAS but your form will be noted as being late. Some Universities still consider applications up until the 30th of June although I would telephone them first and ask to avoid wasting a choice on the UCAS form.

It depends what you want to do. If you are hell bent on going to Uni I would telephone six different places and get commitment from the admissions tutor that your application will atleast be considered despite being late.

I know it sounds silly but the more applications that you make (up to six) the more chances that you have of an offer!
