They gave you that offer as a nicer way of rejecting you from the course you applied for. They wouldn't change their decision based on a phone call from the applicant. But if you do get the grades they need then there's probably a good chance of getting in through clearing.

They won’t reconsider you for the original course, but if you can find another one that takes your fancy then they might be willing to switch your offer to that.

I think it's worth a try calling them just to reassert your interest in the initial course
then obvs if u get good grades you can go for the original course through clearing

but then again you could accept that alternative offer and try to change course at the very beginning of term, otherwise you might be left waiting another year to go to uni

No worries. I would strongly advise you not to accept the other course if it’s not one that you’d be happy to stay on.

I agree with Admit one hold out for the course you want even if it means going somewhere else.
