    Can take a while - it isn't instant. It's different depending on which university, department, etc.

    It depends. Email them, call them and contact them in every way possible so that at least one of the people working there can release you.

    whats the average time it takes to be released? I talked to swansea uni and they said they will give me an offer I have to accept by tomorrow afternoon if i get released from Plymouth but i don't want to do it and it taking too long and ending up with nothing. I need to go to uni this year because who knows what will happen with student finance next year. Also how hard is it to transfer after the 1st year?

    These are all very very broad questions. There is no 'average' time because if the university isn't busy then they'll get round to releasing you and if they are then they'll take longer. As I said, email admissions for Plymouth and also call them and tell them that it's urgent you get released. As for Swansea, tell them you're waiting to be released and if they could extend your offer period. I did this with Aberdeen last year and they gave me a few more days.

    With regards to transferring, that also depends. A university I wanted to go to didn't take transfers unless you also met the A level grades. But a different university asked me to get 65%+ in my first year. So that's something you need to ask directly to the university.
