    Hi,
    I'm having a hard time finding a university in clearing with CCC + A in EPQ (330 UCAS points), to study Geography. I did have a place at the University of Leicester however I had to withdraw from that due to personal reasons.
    I've looked at Keele University but I feel it's just not as reputable as Leicester, and not many people have even heard of it. Unfortunately I was one grade off getting into Queen Mary University in London, and now that it's been over a day since clearing began I'm starting to get a little worried.
    I was wondering what I should do at this stage? I've already been on a gap year so I'd rather not take another one, but many universities are just slightly beyond my grasp. Should I just go to Keele University? I also looked at the University of Hull, however I've decided not to study there.

    Geography was rather undersubscribed this year at a number of universities, for unknown reasons. Keep ringing around, and bear in mind that some universities will take grades a bit lower than those that they publish on their website.
