    I don't think I'm suited to the courses I selected earlier on in the year! If I decide to go through clearing is it possible to completely change what subject/course you do?

    Also if I get any of my offers or one through clearing, can I accept a place and defer it a year once if I change my mind? Obviously before September!!?



    Yes you can change what course you want to do -if its similar to your previously chosen course and (if necessary) you have the a levels you need to do the course, but it is up to the university whether youre accepted or not ofcourse, ive made a blog post relating on what to do after results ( http://ow.ly/YsCl303kO1I )it might be helpful to you and deciding what you want to do.
    You can try for a completely different course but again, its up to the uni.
    Also yes you can defer your place but you have to ask them and when youre on ucas entering the details of the uni thats accepted you via clearing you put next year down instead of this year (but remember you do have to ask the uni before you do this) good luck with whatever you choose to do x
