    Hi ... I applied for History/History and Politics at, Liverpool, Sheffield, Leicester, Lincoln and Sheffield Hallam ... but I only got offers from Lincoln and Sheffield Hallam, rejected by the other 3.

    The thing is, i don't want to go to either of them! I am sure that I could get the grades I need for leicester at least (BBB) after resitting exams and redoing coursework...

    Is there anything I can do do get a place at a 'better' uni? I'm sorry if I sound totally stuck up!

    Any personal experiences or anything? I just feel really disappointed after seeing all my friends get offers off 4/5 unis ... Advice much appreciated!

    Just try again next year. Withdraw now, work to get the grades you need, and apply again.

    I know it sounds stupid... truth is i just didn't research them properly as they were 'back-up' choices, that's why it's worse because I know I shouldn't have applied for them in the first place, even more annoyed at myself!

    Or if you decline them all.

    "To use Extra you need to have:

    * already made five choices
    * received decisions from all these choices, and
    * either had no offers or declined all the offers you have received."
