Hiya,
I originally applied for nursing however I have since changed my mind, plus I haven't got the full entry requirements anyway. Can I email/call the university and ask them to withdraw my application so I can go through clearing sooner than UCAS receives my results? Or do I really have to wait until the end of August for the uni to hear from UCAS that I havent met the entry requirements and then have a mad rush around in the last couple of weeks?

Thank you.

You don't have to wait until August to withdraw from your place. You can do it now and use UCAS extra. Extra means though that you can only apply to one uni/choice at a time. You can search on UCAS for course vacancies(rather than search for all courses), but you should check with the uni to make sure the UCAS listing is still correct. It also means that in clearing there might be different courses available than in extra and vice versa. It really depends on your subject and what uni you want to go to.

The universities can't do it, but you can contact UCAs tomorrow and ask them to change all your replies to Declines. You'll then be able to use Extra if needs be, or Clearing as soon as it opens.

NB. 'Withdraw' in UCAS terms typically means removing you from the entire application cycle, so be sure to explain exactly what you want to do, "change replies to declines" is probably safer.

A number of things really. It just isnt the profession I want to go down with the way the country is right now. The responsibility is ridiculous considering the pay you get & you can lose your pin for some right stupid stuff, the wards arent safe, there is a horrific culture of bullying & if you call them out on it - they make your life hell, the list goes on.
