    hi...
    i am a little confused... one of my friends, when i said i was considering withdrawing from ucas... told me that if i withdraw from an already accepted course and i met the requirements anyway, im still liable to pay the course fees regardless of whther i attend or not. :confused: is that true? Im not sure if this friend is just subtly telling me a load of bull so that we still end up going to the same uni or not, which is why i need this clarifying...

    please help! thanks :confused:

    No, I'm pretty sure that isn't true It seems rather cruel of your "friend" to suggest so, although they themselves may have been misled.

    oh right... gosh, i nearly had a heart attack when he told me! I thought it was odd cos i never heard of that happening before and my teachers had never sed to me... plus i was like... er... i dont recall reading that in the terms and conditions! :confused: I even questioned this friend of mine, and he didnt really answer my questions but was "subtly" trying to make me feel i had no choice but to stay with my uni choice... (cos he wants us to be together there i think)

    thanks for clarifying things tho! *huge sigh of relief!!!*

    Can i withdraw even til after results day? cos it sez in the little booklet thing that u can til late Sept or something i think!

    Yes, you must withdraw your application before 30 September 2004 if you want to apply for entry in 2005 (this really effects people who've deferred entry more). If you want to go through clearing you'll have to contact the universities you've accepted offers with to see if they'll release you.

    I *think* you have to confirm that you're accepting a place after you get your results anyway, so you don't really need to "withdraw" as such. But don't quote me on that.

    the thing is... (not that my friend knows.... its complicated... long story)... but um, im awaiting some interviews that take place AFTER Results day, so if they go well, ill definitely wont be needing my uni offers... My interview is for an art foundation year (which dusnt use ucas)... and my uni offers are for psych... (again, long story) Obviously i wanna keep my options oppen, which is why im wondering what to do... :confused:
