university is confirmed, don’t worry, you can still apply. 
If you are a prospective first year Undergraduate or Postgraduate student and your
offer of a place at your preferred University or Higher Education Institute is
withdrawn by the University or Higher Education Institute because you do not
achieve the required entry grades, you may be eligible to be released from this
agreement. 
You must provide written evidence from the University that you do not have a place
within 3 days of your results being published (and no later than 28th August,
whichever date is sooner) and we will release you from the contract without penalty
and refund the deposit paid. 
You may also be eligible to be released from this agreement if you are a prospective

because you have exceeded your expected grades. 
To apply to be released from this agreement in the circumstances referred to above,
you will need to supply us with a copy of: 
 A written or email confirmation that you wish to cancel your reservation,
stating full name and full details of the property booked;
