    OK, my first choice for uni is Liverpool at 320 points. My insurance is Northumbria at BBC. I didn't want to go to Liverpool, it was just a gap filler on the form, but I only received two offers grr. So I just put them down. I've realised that I really want to stay at home. Now, I am predicted BBC. And, although I may get a little higher, I don't think I could get 320 points.

    So, after this ramble, if I amazingly did get 320 points after all my nights of revision, can I still go to my insurance choice uni? One teacher told me that I am legally bound to go to Liverpool if I got the grades!!!! That is not an option for me for personal reasons etc and I want to stay in Newcastle. An answer would be muchos appreciated!

    i don't think thats true - I think you can ask to be released from your first choice. Not sure exactly how it works though - I'm sure theres another thread on this somewhere...

    well, it sort of makes sense - they don't want someone who's going to be miserable and might drop out. That would be a waste of both your time and theirs.

    Theres something about it in here:

    you arent legally bound to go to either uni's youve put down! but i recommend emailing the one you want to go to and telling them the situation. they want lots of students to want to go their uni so they'l probably be happy to help

    Call the uni if they are willing to release you. I chose a firm offer before and in a few months time, I decided not to go. Therefore, I rang them up and telling them the situation that I don't think I could meet the requirements and stuff like that, and then I was released. This signifies that you won't have an insurance choice. You will only have a firm choice which is used to be your insurance. You will need to call UCAS too after calling the uni.
