    I failed to get the necessary to get into my firm choice Sheffield since I was 1 raw mark, 2 UMS of an A in Government & Politics so I entered clearing and have a verbal offer from the University of York. The deadline for accepting this offer was 10AM today but the status on UCAS is still "Referred". I did get this email from the admissions tutor last night:

    "Dear Matthew,
    Thanks for letting me know. I have checked and you have indeed been referred to us through clearing. You do not need to take any further action at this point. In due course, you will receive information from my colleagues in Student Recruitment and Admissions regarding registration, accommodation and the clearing visit day next week. Please keep an eye on your email for this information. If you have any further questions, please ring them on 01904324000.

    Congratulations on receiving a place.

    I am probably been paranoid but they can not go back on that offer can they? If it hasn't updated by 10AM I haven't lost my place have I because I don't really think I would want to go to another University and wouldn't know what to do.

    I think you should leave them to it. They have offered you a place, they'll email you at some point over the next week like the rest of the York firmers with accommodation information, IT account info and things like that. If you're still really worried you could always call them on the number given.
