Can you hold onto your uni place and call another uni for clearing after getting a verbal offer? Or do you have to put yourself in clearing first. I just don’t want to risk losing my place at a uni and not get any clearing offers.
Many universities will be happy to take you back through clearing if you don’t find a place elsewhere. Instead of ringing clearing places talk to your firm first (ask for and take a note of names and job titles) and see if they can give you some reassurance.
