Clearing with a Conditional Offer

Is it possible to go into Clearing AND keep the only conditional offer that I was made? There is a course in Clearing I would like to apply for, but I would like to keep the extra-offer in my pocket.
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hi Aino,

You can only go into Clearing if you have no offers. If you've seen a course that interests you, contact the admissions team directly now to ask if they will offer you a place. Only decline your Conditional offer if you have another offer.

Take care and be careful about making sudden decisions.
