What's the status of your application? Do you have a firm (and insurance) choice? Are the unconditional/conditional/unsuccessful?

search on the ucas toolbar for vacancy in clearing courses and then when you see the universities that have vacancy for your course and call them up.

Yes but they have several days. Don't wait around for them, phone them up and find out if they've made a decision.

That and/or name. Nothing particularly taxing

Hi! Did you apply there this year? A uni won't accept you in clearing if you applied unsuccessfully in the same cycle. If not, wait a little while and give a chaser call. They're busy, remember, so it's wise to be proactive.

Before I could explain anything I was put through to a pre-recorded message that was no help and ended the call....

Yep, you'd need to call your insurance to release yourself. I wouldn't do it though, as unis almost never accept applicants through Clearing that they've already rejected. Unless you really don't want to go to your insurance and would be happier taking another Clearing vacancy.

In that case, you've got nothing to lose: ask your insurance to release you and get the Clearing ball rolling.

Have a look at rankings and vacancies. You should definitely find something that takes your fancy. Again it's not likely your original firm will accept you, but if you're in Clearing anyway, you may as well try.

my insurance choice is herriott watt, but i dont think that is good for textiles, my firm choice was leeds uni, which was unsuccessful. I cant find other good unis for textiles other than UAL colleges, i'm really confused
