    If it's not in Clearing, they don't have any spaces, so there's very little point in ringing up.

    You can ring, but if there's no vacancy advertised, it's extremely unlikely that there will be one on the off chance.

    Sure, I dont know what my grades are now, yet i have an extenuating circumstance, which i have emailed my firm proof of before exams, can i call them up and remind them to see if they maybe more lenient?

    Thanks again

    They do not need reminding - they will have considered this already, sorry

    It is worth checking throughout the day as courses may open and close as people accept or decline offers. Although unlikely - there have been cases of courses that may have reopened.

    I have rang all the universities and course I can and that I'm interested in. However when I ring some it just says user busy and cuts off. How do I get into contact with these unis?

    Keep going. It's natural that lines will be busy, you'll get through. Good luck!

    I doubt it. They have had ample time to consider (they've had your results since Monday). Good luck in Clearing though, keep us updated on how you go

    It seems like theres no point. I have to keep pressing the call back button on my iphone every five seconds. Should I keep at it or ring back later.

    Keep at it - Universities are answering calls as fast as they can.

    Just keep at it

    This is normal - I know it is new to you but for those of us that go through it year on year normal

    So calm down and keep calling

    They will answer

    Hi there,

    Have you considered Hertfordshire University as an option. Please check out our website at www.herts.ac.uk/clearing or for live course updates on UCAS.

    Knd Regards

    Chris
    I'm extremely stressed out at the moment. I understand you want people to come to your uni but constantly pestering me about it really isn't going to make me any more likely to apply. On the contrary it would actually put me off.

    Don't worry, I was in clearing and it took me ages to get through to places on the phone. It took me until 6pm to get through to some universities. I still got several options offered to me.

    If it cuts off because it's busy keep trying. There are so many people calling so you'll have to persevere.
