Hello! My firm university Loughborough accepted me though my marks were lower than they asked. I was sure that I won’t get enough so I went to my insurance university Strathclyde. Now I don’t want to go to Loughborough because I already settled down in Glasgow. Strathclyde won’t give me place even I apply through clearing. What should I do? Reapply for 2012 entry and take a gap year or gor through clearing?

If you really don’t want to go to Loughborough, then you can either ask to be released into Clearing and seek a place elsewhere (though it is now very late for any high ranking university) or withdraw completely and apply again next year. The latter, of course, means higher fees (unless you can qualify as a Scot at a Scottish university).
