    Ok heres the deal

    I applied through UCAS like 2 weeks ago to go straight into clearing so obv I don't have choices for unis.

    Now I'm confused about the whole clearing thing
    Are vacancies displayed on the UCAS website or the individual uni website?
    And more importantly
    Say I found a good option for a course, but I wanted to shop around for more options at other unis, can I like reserve it or something or do I have to make the decision there and then on the phone whether I wanna keep that place?

    Thanks!

    They re displayed on both normally unis will give you deadlines to add them as a choice on track so it gives you a few hours to shop around, you don't have to make the decision there and then in fact it's good to take a bit of time to think about it
