    When do you start applying for accommodation? Do you have till firming on UCAS and if so where do you get the details from? So behind with all this, also how do you sort out finances? Sorry for sounding clueless it's just our school hasn't really kept us updated so little confused! Anyone with any advice please message me thanks!

    Hey!
    I've got a conditional offer of AAB for BA geography with a year of international study. This is my dream university and dream course! The only thing is I don't think I'm going to meet the conditions, I'm studying geography psychology and English, and am more likely to get ABB.
    I've got a conditional offer from Manchester for AB and a pass at welsh baccalaureate, which is much more achievable!
    However I really don't want to decline UOB! I'm not sure what to do, as Manchester are flexible and quoted in the offer letter that they'll do their best to find you a place even if you don't meet the conditions!
    Does anyone know where UOB stand if you don't meet the conditions? Are they flexible with trying to place you on a similar course etc?
    I don't want to decline Birmingham, but there's also no point putting it as my insurance if I get into Manchester! But also don't want to put Manchester as insurance as if unforeseeable circumstances arise and I don't meet the conditions when they see it's my insurance they may not try and place me on a course!
    If anyone has any idea about the flexibility UOB have on results day i'd really appreciate it!

    I don't know how flexible they are, but if it really is your dream uni, firm Birmingham! I've been left in the position where I want to go there so much that I would hate to go to my insurance uni, but if I don't meet my offer grades, I'll just reapply next year. If you want it that much, then it's worth doing and in my opinion, uni costs too much these days for you to be going somewhere you don't want to go!

    Heyy I've got an offer for BSc Geography I've firmed my offer for university of birmingham they said to me on the applicant day that they are quite likely to take you if you miss the offer by one grade so if you got ABB, if you contacted them on results day they are quite likely to still give you a place

    I've done that too, they just keep saying that it does exist and that student finance should be able to find it
    Are you sure you can't just type in the course name from a drop down list? I'm pretty sure I just typed in the key words like drama and English and it came up!!

    Still haven't heard from Birmingham :/ I've recieved 3 offers so far, but I really fancy B'ham. A month to go, so lets keep fingers crossed
    Sorry, I didn't really follow this thread in the past few weeks - Did you hear back from Bham yet?

    I got my offer for IR&Economics from Bham about two weeks ago, but I'm still waiting to hear back from one more choice before I can actually make a decision

    You should apply now for accommodation as it's a first come first served basis. You don't have to have firmed it to apply. The number you need to do it will be on your letter. You can change where you want to live later as well.

    You can apply for finance now too but I haven't done that yet as I haven't made my firm and insurance decisions yet.
