    I applied to derby university for a january start in accounting and finance, two weeks into this I realised it was what I wanted to do at all and intercalated to resume studies in september.

    Scince then I realised I wanted to do zoology and gained the relevant qualifications from home (with the OU) to get onto the course.

    I've been rining around and bangor (the head of bio-sciences) said I could go on the course.

    Ucas are sending me all over the place... i've been told I need to cancel my place with derby completely, but also been told I need to get derby uni to put me into clearing.

    Also I just want to confirm wether you can make choices about which university you go to through clearing?

    It'd be a shame after all this if I can't get onto the course of my choice.

    ring ucas. ask them specifically. do exactly what they tell you. ignore any other advice from any other source except from a ucas advisor on the phone. take their name and extension number and if you have more questions, ask them and them alone. this way you can be sure that you will do it right, or at least if you do it wrongly, you have one person to blame instead of a general group of people.

    It sounds to me like you actually started the course at Derby? In which case, it's not a question of being released by Derby, it's a question of you dropping out, which means there's nothing to stop you from completing an application for UCAS that will be held over until Clearing. Bangor won't be able to confirm your place until then, but it sounds as if that won't be a problem.
