    Hi, if I apply through UCAS now will I be entered in for clearing 2007 or 2008 applications or can I at the time of when universities allow for clearing phone the university up and apply then?

    2007 Applications and yes you can do either.

    You'll be entered for 2007, but you have to submit a UCAS application before you can apply through Clearing- you can't just phone them up if you haven't actually applied because you won't be eligible.

    That isn't backed up by the stats from UCAS I'm afraid. Students withdrawing is down 3% on last year.

    It may change once people have their results though.

    well the stats weren't released on the 9th July they're FROM the 9th of July

    Anyone with any sense would wait until results day before deciding to withdraw and reapply to get better funding though - until you know how likely you are to get a place after a year out (ie know how good your actual grades are) then it's a bit daft to withdraw.
