    I have a clearing offer at Newcastle University but I have been told that I have to decline my firm university's Unconditional Course Change offer by ringing them up. I can't ring them until tomorrow now as lines are closed.

    Will my clearing offer expire by tomorrow or should I not be concerned as Universities expect this? I have to say that my clearing offer confirmation doesn't say anything about it expiring or anything.

    It varies depending on the university, they should have told you by when to decide when you spoke to them earlier.

    It is probably worth ringing them tomorrow to confirm the offer is there before declining your unconditional firm, if they will allow that

    All the clearing confirmation email says is 'From 5pm Thursday 15th August input these details into UCAS Track... [blah blah blah]' and I wouldn't expect them to remove it within 24 or 36 hours or whatever. I'll ring both tomorrow morning. Any idea how long it will take for my firm to release me if I rang them at 8am?
