    I applied for some colleges, but when i went to the open days and interviews i found out that they were not for me. Now I can't apply to the colleges I have found out to be most suited for me because the deadline day for the applications has passed. I want to know, because obviously some people decide to go to other colleges and some just don't get the result they want, how flexible are college applications after/on results day? will they let you join if you have the results and there are spaces?

    Contact the colleges and ask. they are normally experienced in knowing how many offers to make with expected drop outs. Nothing to lose from asking and even going on reserve lists.
