Keep QMUL offer (CS) or withdraw and apply again for King's in clearing?

Can someone advise me on this one?

I have applied for Computer Science at King's, Queen Mary, City, Greenwich, and the University of East London. I have received offers from all of them except King's, even though I meet and exceed their entry requirements.

I have firmed Queen Mary and insured Greenwich. I want to know if it's wise or possible to withdraw my UCAS application and apply to King's through clearing (if they have the Computer Science course available). I read on the forum about someone who got a verbal offer from King's for the same course and received a congratulatory email but never had the offer accepted on UCAS.

Is it a smart thing to do? Is it possible? If yes, how can I do it safely without risking not securing any place for September?

Thanks in advance for your help!
Comp Sci at KCL won't be in Clearing.

I agree, Kings will definely not be in clearing. Either accept QM this year or take a gap year and try for Kings then.

No one knows why. I mean it’s probably just a gamble for sure. Every part of my application seemed pretty strong
I’d agree that if they’re rejecting credible candidates who exceed their typical offer then the likelihood of them being in clearing is basically nill. Not impossible, but pretty near.

Are they considering Extra candidates now? If not, that would also suggest they’re very comfortable with the number of offers they’ve made.

For International applicants, not UK.
