Just a quick question about if you're looking to be released into clearing. When you call your firm or insurance do you just ask them to release you and they say something like "We'll process you acccordingly" or is it a longer process of them discussing why you you want to go through clearing/making a last pitch asking you to consider the university?

If you no longer wish to go to your firm and/or insurance but you met the offer (or they're accepting you with lower grades) then you'll have to phone the universities concerned and ask them to release you.

They'll probably want your reasons for doing this, but if you're firm about it they're not going to force you to attend a university you're not fully committed to.

They might not release you straight away and it can take up to a couple of days, so do this as soon as possible so you don't miss out on the best places in Clearing. Once your release has been processed, your Clearing number will show on Track. You can then start phoning around universities for places.

It totally depends on the uni. They may ask you to confirm in writing as well.

You should always ask the uni for a rough time frame on being released, as you can then communicate this to any unis you talk to in clearing.

Thank you. Another query I had was how fast clearing vacancies for courses diminish? For instance, is it likely that whilst you were being released, the university you would've liked to approach states they don't have anymore available, leaving you back to square one?

Yes, they do. It's not quite first come first served, but it's possible that all the vacancies on a course could disappear within 24 hours- getting released often takes 24-48 hours.
