I've accepted a place. Is it too late for clearing?

I would like to know if I can go through Clearning after accepting a course. If I can go through it what can I do and how can I do it?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Technically, you are obliged to accept the place if you have met your offer.  In practice, you can talk to other universities and if you secure the offer of a place you can request to be released from the place you are contractually committed to (ie the first university).  This happens but it must be done through UCAS.
UCAS also has a new device called Adjustment. Check the UCAS website for more information. You need to act quickly.
