    OK, I got one answer for this before but if you could be a bit clearer on it: is there any penalty if I firm my offer, get the grades and then decide not to go? Or is it OK? Of course I'm thinking right now that we firm them in August, because we don't get an unconditional offer til then...
    On the other hand, why do people have to visit a GP?

    First of all, congrats on your offer .

    Now regarding your actual question; I don't think it's guaranteed that you can pull out, but they'll almost certainly let you. You just phone up the university on results day and ask to be released. You also have to cancel your student loan. I did this last year for Warwick and they just wanted me to phone them and then write an e-mail asking to withdraw. Shortly afterwards, every time I logged onto Track, it'd tell me my application's withdrawn and then it'd auto log me out.

    I think you should come to Imperial over your other university, by the way. Judging by your posts, your English is better than lots of people who do come here and get good grades. The only thing to worry about is if you actually know the technical terms of biology/chemistry/physics in English or not.

    The GP thing is because they're medics and not allowed to have HIV and stuff.

    You firm them now (or sometime soon) and they only accept you (unconditionally) once you get your grades in august

    As for seeing GPs - there are forms they send us to fill in (medicine) which our GPs need to sign

    Fun! (I mean about the GPs).
    Thanks for the answer Swayum. I'm on the verge of firming (I need to "up" my physics grade, but anyway) not sure yet though... And my parents have forbidden me to talk about it until next weekend.

    THIS MAY CONCERN ANYONE WHO IS STILL WAITING

    Today I called IC's admissions officer, gave her my UCAS ID, so she told me that a decision has been made but she cannot tell the decision through the phone. She also said that all decisions has been made, and they will be available on the UCAS today night, tomorrow or maximum Friday morning.
    It seems that our long waiting journey will soon come to an end!

    Well I'm not really sure, but it is certainly true for engineering courses, as the officer informed me.
