    I think that whether you send the letter or not depends on the uni, because on my AS12 letter, which arrived this morning, it said on the bottom slip:

    "UCL assumes you will take up your place. Only return this form if you wish to withdraw."
    Ditto. All you need to do is return the reply slip perforated at the bottom of your AS12/AS12C form -- and not even all universities (like UCL or LSE) require you to do that.

    Now go out and party!

    I looked at UEA last year Clarence - seems nice. What course are you going for?



    It really does depend on the uni. Some do it that day, so it would be done by the next morning. I had to phone mine a couple of times, because they took a few days and it still wasn't done. Don't worry though, and if they are taking too long, phone up, ask again, and get the name of the person you're speaking to (always a nice hint for them to actually do it!)

    Syntax - there are better reasons to give I would say - e.g. saying you can't afford to go to university this year. I said, honestly, that I'd changed my mind about the course and that it wasn't for me after all (well, semi-honestly - I didn't like the accomm either). They need to give UCAS a reason I believe for it.
    I said Aber was too far from home :cool:. But now I've realised (d'oh) that I also can't get my clearing passport until I turn down Sussex's deferred entry offer (which I'm not even sure I should do..) but I don't have that AS12 form thingy from UCAS. Phone time I guess.

    Quite a few. Are you going to your Firm or Insurance? How long since the uni made its decision?

    I would not be shocked UCAS is shifting thousands of documents at this time, just make sure you keep track of where everything is.

    The Royal Mail don't guarantee letters will arrive the next day, assuming UCAS managed to send it yesterday. So don't panic yet

    My track still says Conditional for my firm choice (coz I'm still negotiating an offer with them), but my Insurance choice have accepted me.

    Now will the Insurance wait a few days and withdraw their offer if I don't confirm their offer withing a few days? Is there a deadline to do that?

    So to be safe is it just better to send back the ucas bit at the bottom of the letter, and also to reply online just to be safe?

    Ok, i know this has been asked before, so forgive me for asking again, i just can't remember the reponses to this question.

    I've got the AS12 letter confirming my first choice offer's acceptance. Now, the letter states that i should reply the "slip below" to an address that should be given to send it back to...?

    Well, the slip says "please do not return this slip" and says "you should contact us only if you wish to decline your place..."

    Does that mean i don't have to reply with the slip? Don't i still have to reply the slip to Nottingham (my first choice?)

    Well, who has your grades then? Ask him/her.

    File it away and don't worry about it (you might need it to get a student bank account set up)
    Alternatively you could use the Certificate of Acceptance if your uni issues one, but yeah, go party baby!

    I got the same thing - so I don't have to contact my Firm choice Uni or anything? Only the letter seems to be contradicting itself. In the main part of the letter it says, 'It is important that you respond as indicated on the reply slip within 14 days of this letter or your place may be offered to someone else. Please contact the university or college concerned direct for all advice on this deadline'.
    Then at the bottom it says: 'The University of blah assumes you will take up your place so do not return this reply slip unless you want to withdraw.'
    Then underneath that message it says: 'Please tick the appropriate box below: I will be taking up the offer of a place on the above course/I will not be taking up the offer of a place because...'

    I'm confused, and what makes this worse is that I haven't received my letter from my Firm uni to confirm my place yet, either.
