Hi, basically I am in a situation where ideally I would like to go to a uni different to my firm or insurance, yet this is dependant on my results.
What I am wondering is, on results day is it possible to turn my offer from my firm choice (if received) into an unconditional offer for 2016, and re apply through the ucas system as normal, allowing me to apply to my ideal university and hopefully receive an offer from them, yet if I do not receive an offer from them i'll have my unconditional to fall back on.
Hope that made sense, and thanks!

I mean, this would be dependent on the university - but most unis will happily accept deferred entry as long as you meet the entry requirements (or seem like you will, if you go back into study again).

It's different depending wherever you're talking about, so best thing to do is just contact the university itself and ask them

A flat-out no. You can ask this year's firm to defer you till 2016, but you cannot then apply in the next Ucas cycle without cancelling your deferred choice.

On results day, ring up the university you want to get into and try and get through clearing without changing anything on your UCAS. It's not like they will tell your firm choice about it and you will know if they will let you anyway.

The number of courses and universities that come up in clearing is staggering. That's guessing that you're not wanting to transfer to Oxbridge though.

This will not work. You are only issued with a clearing number if you hold no offers, and universities will not talk to you without one.

My bad, I remember speaking to universities when going through adjustment and not having to change anything. I was wrong to assume they were the same perhaps.

Adjustment is as you describe it - a risk free way of making enquiries, but clearing is a different kettle of fish, I'm afraid.

So I would be able to defer entry to next year, but not apply to other uni's through the normal cycle? Um if I explain to them I'd like to re apply through ucas for 2016 with some valid reasons, and I achieved their requirement, I should in theory get offered an unconditional right?


Thanks for the replies guys!

Your first sentence is correct.

If you turn down a uni this year, but then re-apply to them as one of your five choices for next year, then it is unlikely that they will hold it against you. In fact, they probably won't even remember who you are so I doubt you would need to explain why you are doing this. If you have achieved the grades for 2016 entry then yes, any offer would be unconditional. Is that what you are asking?

Best and honest answer is to ask the uni's direct as they can give the honest answer.

People here only provide advice which is just their views.
