clearing deadlines

I have missed my offer to get into Warwick which was ABB. I obtained ABC but the C was 4 marks off a B, and so I have asked for it to be remarked, which could take a week. Warwick has said that if the grades do change to ABB then i will be accepted. As i cannot be sure that the grade will change, i have also been applying to universities through clearing. I have been made offers but I have been given a deadline of only 24hours.
I do not know what to do as I cannot wait for my remarks without missing the deadline for my clearing offers. Extensions can be given but i dont know what circumstances would permit this.
Can you please advise me on how i should proceed.

Hi Tom, you can accept one of your clearing offers now. If your remarks mean that you meet the conditions of your offer from Warwick, you can re-confirm with Warwick that they will take you, and then ask your clearing place to release you back into clearing. You'd then add your original firm choice as a clearing choice so that Warwick could accept you. You would at least have a confirmed place by accepting one of your clearing offers. Good luck!
