    Hey Elfqueen 1, I've moved your thread from Advice on everyday issues to our UCAS and Applications forum in the hope you'll get better replies in here

    You can still decline your offers and ask to be put in UCAS Extra.

    Only do this if you're sure you want to pursue alternative options, and ask the university that you want to apply to if they are still considering applications for the particular course you wish to apply to.

    Also FYI you can only make one application at a time in Extra; universities have 21 days to respond to your Extra application and if they do not make a decision, you can remove that choice and add another after the 21 days have expired. The main thing: check they are still considering applications before you apply. Although courses will seemingly be open to apply via UCAS, it doesn't mean they will actively be considering applications.
