Hey all.

On results day, I went through clearing and got a place confirmed at sheffield. I have since got a remark and got the grades for my first choice which originally rejected me. If I wanted to reapply, how do I exit my contract with sheffield and get them to release me?

Hi!
Have you been re-offered a place at your first choice? Or are you planning on taking a year out?

You need to see whether your first choice are still gonna accept you for this year. If they will then you need to call up Sheffield and ask them to release you and then (using instructions given by your original firm) you need to add an offer through clearing.

Did you notify your firm and clearing university that you were getting a remark?

You need to speak to them both to see if they will still allow a late change. It's 9 days after the deadline for meeting your offer conditions.

You do NOT need to arrange a release/place through Clearing as advised above. A swap due to a remark can be handled by UCAS but both universities need to agree.

Do you want to reapply for 5 choices or just have a deferred place for 2020 with your previous firm?

In that case then, pretty easy. (Assuming you're just gonna go through the application process on UCAS again.)

UCAS have a new feature for 2019 called 'self-release'. It's super easy and you don't have to ring Sheffield.

Had you applied for accommodation at Sheffield yet? (I changed from Sheffield after my first choice Uni re-offered, so I know the process a little.)

I thought they just wanted to release themselves from Sheffield's offer?
There is an option on self-release to declare 'I'm not going to Uni this year', so they can just re-apply for 2020? Or have I got it confused?

You need to speak to your previous firm choice then. Did you notify them on results day that you were getting a remark?

Don't say anything about reapplying. Please IGNORE the incorrect advice from the other posters about releasing yourself and using clearing.

Ring them up, explain that your results have been remarked and you now meet your offer, ask if they'll take you back for 2020 entry. If they agree then ask what you need to do to make it happen (should be nothing - they need to ring UCAS and UCAS will swap you back to them and they'll update your entry date to 2020.

Ive heard some unis are a bit difficult about releasing you but is that more with clearing? and would I not need to contact sheffield at all?

Talk to your firm choice. Just pick up the phone now.

You don't need to speak to sheffield and you don't need to be released - a release is to use clearing and that isn't what you are doing.
