    Okay, I'm confused. If I get the grades for my firm but want to go to my insurance, can I? I ask this because both my firm and insurance want AAB, and I made it that because it would presumably prolong my choice between the two of them. I only chose one as my firm on a near arbitrary basis, based on accomodation.

    not really unless you have a very good reason. your ucas application bounds you to going to the first choice if you make your grades. its still possible to change but not reccomended this late in the game..

    UCAS shouldn't have that kind of power. I thought they were just an organization set up as an intermediary between the student and the universities. If both universities have offered me a place, shouldn't it ultimately just be between me and the universities? Can't I just downright reject one and accept another regardless of UCAS? Given that my firm and insurance are the same required grades, wouldn't this make going to my insurance a logical impossibility? In which case, why would it be allowed on the application process?
