Basically, i've messed up all my UCAS Choices.. Don't want to go to any of them.. long story. But am i taking a huge risk by considering Clearing as an option, Since at results day i will be declining my Firm and Insurance, as i no longer want to go to either of them.
Or do i phone up as many Universities first hand to ensure a place, then decline my Firm and Insurance? To be on the safe side.
If i do it the other way by declining my Firm and Insurance first, i will have no University at all, and that is beginning to scare me.
What do i do?
Thanks in advance!
I'm pretty sure if you decline your first and insurance choices after they've given you and offer you cant not entre clearing. However if you cancel them now then you can (can someone cofirm this for me?)
If you dont want to go to either of your choices, decline them now and then enter clearing. If you dont get anything you want, take a gap year and then reapply. Do not go to Uni for the sake of it. If you dont like the place your going to dont go! Its a complete waste of money! Wait and reapply.
Just to clear.. I'm not going University for the sake of it :P
You should be able to ask your universities to release you if you call up on results day, then you'll be issued with a clearing passport once UCAS know.
I suggest you read the wiki and sticky threads on the subject. If you really don't want to go to either of your offers then it would be much better to get released now so that you will get into clearing with no delays.
Can someone confirm this?
When am i eligible for clearing? If i decline my offers now or on results day?
can't you go into ucas extra before clearing - where universities advertise their courses that have places left over? Sarah i would suggest you call a university that you do want to go to, speak to the course tutor of the course you want to do and ask what the procedure would be if you wanted to go there but have offers from different universities- if they have a place left maybe they would consider you? alternatively phone ucas they would give you the correct procedure
Free_One! Thats what i want to do, base my university decision on my results. But i am planning beforehand, i will phone a few universites to see if they will consider me!
What is your firm btw? Mines Sheffied, but i want to go to Birmingham
Yep if memory serves if somewhere has accepted you on results day you can't go into clearing, so you need to decline now.
Nah.. What it is.. if you decline your firm and insurancd on results day.. you qualify for clearing
But omg if i withdraw my offers now..i have no university to go to if you think about.. i mean what if clearing flops. This thought is actually scaring me!
