Deferred unconditional place but want to go through Clearing

I have an unconditional offer from last year that I deferred until this year but now I have been looking at another university that I didn’t apply to the first time. What is the best way to go about trying to get a place in that university and would I have to give up my place at my current firm choice in order to look at the other uni?

Hello Amira,

Phone the new university and ask if they have any availability on the course of your choice for 2018. Explain your circumstances. They may be able to offer you a place without you making a new UCAS application, but I am not 100% sure.

However, you cannot hold two offers so you will have to give up the deferred UF. Don't do this until you have secured an alternative offer.

See Clearing:

and unconditional offers:

Best of luck!
