    I was already planning on going through clearing but I found out that if you decline your offers on results day it could take up to 10 days to get your clearing number and I don't want to take that risk because I want to apply to another uni. But now I've found out that even though I've asked them to decline me, these unis could miss tomorrow's UCAS deadline and I don't know what's going to happen to me - will I get my clearing number in time??

    You'll just have to wait and see. The uni won't deliberately miss the deadline, but if they're really busy with other students who have left it until the last minute they may not have time to process it. But even if it is processed late, you'll still be in Clearing earlier by asking now rather than waiting til results day.

    I really think you should have waited for some replies before rejecting your UCAS offers... it doesn't take 10 days at all for your Clearing number to appear. I don't know where you got that from...
    There was always a chance that you might have met the requirements for your Firm/Insurance, or that they offered you an alternative course with lower entry requirements.

    Clearing number only appears once results have been gotten

    OP refers to declining their offers on results day, which suggests they were expecting to meet their grades but just wanted to go another uni.

    That's what I meant. There wasn't any point in rejecting both unis before result's day, because the clearing number would have appeared almost straight away on that day anyway, and OP doesn't know their results yet so they can't apply for another uni until results day anyway..... I don't see what they achieved by doing this.

    Quite a bit, because if OP declined their offers on results day, they could be in purgatory for up to a week or more, because they will be low priority for the uni and they will not be instantaneous on releasing them, and then the good clearing places will have gone.

    If they just want to change universities and they know they're going to meet their target grades then wouldn't it be safer to use Adjustment on the day?

    Why "safer" what is the risk?

    Adjustment is safer, but there are NO lists for it, as far as I know it's on uni websites, but under 1k people used it last year!.

    If your Firm or Insurance have accepted you, you can use Adjustment to browse other unis and ask if they'll take you, without having to lose your Firm place straight away. To use Clearing, you have to reject all of your choices first, meaning you can't fall back on them if you don't find a new place in Clearing.

    What if you don't have an insurance choice and you get accepted into your firm? Can you go through adjustment and swap places without a clearing number or do you still have to ask the firm uni to be released into clearing?
