    I have to accept my offers by tomorrow (9th May) but I have recently applied to college (not heard back yet) in case I don't get the grades for uni.

    I don't want to decline offers in case I get the grades and decide I do want to go to uni, but I don't want to accept and then be tied down if I get the grades but decide uni definitely is not for me

    Is is possible to accept uni offers but decline them at a later date? Or is your acceptance definite?

    You can accept now and withdraw from the UCAS system later.
