    Basically, based on the offers I've already recieved I've decided that I no longer want to be considered by Southampton as I have no intention of going there.
    The only problem is, I have an interview coming up in February.

    Should I contact them first and wait for a reply before clicking 'cancel choice' on UCAS? Or will they just send me a rejection (or withdraw my application for me) once I've told them I no longer want to be considered.

    I did this last year - withdrew from Wimbledon a few weeks before an interview. I just emailed the costume department (as I was applying there and said that I had decided, for personal reasons, to withdraw my application and accept an offer elswhere.

    I didnt really have personal reasons, its just a reasonable excuse.

    So did you just cancel the choice on UCAS, then contact them to let them know, or contact them first and get a rejection?

    I've made up my mind.. I didn't really want this thread to be about whether or not to go to the interview, just how to go about withdrawing. Thanks for the reply though

    It would be common courtesy just to ring them and say you'll be withdrawing your application and therefore will not be attending the interview. After that you can do it on UCAS

    I emailed them first to let them know that I wouldn't be attending, and then a few days later I checked the ucas track and they had somehow withdrawn the application for me. Maybe they had rung ucas... I just thought I would leave it uncancelled and let it change to unsuccessful when i didnt go to the interview, but hey ho.

    When I did this I just emailed them. They responded by just saying thanks for letting us know and good luck. I then proceeded to respond to my offers.
