    Hi all,

    Hoping someone out there can share any advice. I have had an unconditional offer from Nottingham Uni for counselling which I accepted early this year.

    However because of circumstances I can't commit to that course I want to do a completely different course in Art at Derby Uni.

    Derby Uni have said that I need a clearing number, Notts Uni have advised that to be 'released' takes 10 days! (I know, I must be the only person who didn't know that) The course I want to go onto is available in clearing but I have no idea how do go about it....any advice?

    Without that clearing number there isnt anything Derby can do for you, 10 days is a bit longer than normal up to a couple of days sounds more likely.

    Thank you for a reply!

    Do you reckon I could go through adjustment? for the route I took have exceeded what Derby Uni require for their course?

    You aren't eligible for adjustment if they gave you an unconditional offer i m afraid.

    Ohh! I'm really lost with how I can get around this, really don't want to take a gap year. I guess I will have to have another conversation with the universities.

    All you can do is hope they release you in a reasonable amount of time, there is no way to get round it.
