Rejecting an offer for Clearing

How do I reject my unconditional offer and go into clearing on results day? The course is no longer what I want to do, and I can't use Adjustment since the course I do want is more or less the same entry requirements.
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hello Courteney,

If you know exactly what and where you want to study I suggest you ring the admissions team immediately to find out if they have any space and are likely to be able to give you the offer of a place.

It is a big gamble to decline all your existing offers, but that is what you must do to go into Clearing/Adjustment.

There are many opportunities at Clearing but my advice (whether before or after Results) is to get the verbal offer of a place before taking irreversible action through UCAS.

Good luck.
