    Hi everyone. I have this little problem with my application and am really unsure of what to do now.I have received an unconditional from Edinburgh University to study Chemistry but now wish to Chemical Engineering instead. I had contacted the university and they said that they would have transfered me had they had any more places for Chemical Engineering. They have now said to call back on the August 16 as that is when the first "clearing" day happens for University. There is no guarantee that there will be a place then but they said if even one seat openz up they will give me it. This means that i would need to defer my Chemistry offer until 2017. If I don't get a place on August, I would need to take a Gap year.Any advice would be greatly appreciated as to what to do.

    It seems quite clear cut to me. If chemical engineering goes into clearing then you may be offered a place; otherwise, you will have to apply again in the next cycle.
