    Hi. Firstly, my predicated grades are A*AA, but in all honesty I would be lucky with AAB, and on a bad day this could be ABB for me.

    I have decided to change my courses from this:

    Nottingham (MEng) - AAA
    Manchester (MEng) - AAB (got)
    Sheffield (MEng) - AAB
    Exeter (MEng) - AAB
    Southampton ( MEng Engineering with a Foundation Year) - BBB

    to this:

    Nottingham (MEng) - AAA
    Manchester (MEng) - AAB (got)
    Sheffield (MEng) - ABB
    Exeter (BEng) - ABB
    Warwick (BEng) - AAB/ABB

    The reason for this is because at the moment I would not have a decent insurance offer because all my Universities would be AAB or higher, apart from the BBB which is a course that I don't really want to do, because its 5 years. I had only picked this because I thought I was going to be getting rejections from the other universities because I'm paranoid like that.

    With the revised choices, I have changed the Engineering with a Foundation Year to something I wouldn't actually mind picking for my insurance, which is a BEng at Warwick. This course also gives me the oppurtunity to transfer to MEng later, as long as I do well in the second year.

    I would also change Exeter to BEng so that I have another ABB offer. This is because Warwick is highly competitive, and I know Exeter is too, but atleast it gives me the chance to receive two offers that I would be happy to have as an insurance, just incase I miss the firm offer.

    So my questions are:

    1) Do you think I'm doing the right thing?

    2) How do you change choices in track exactly? I wouldn't know what to do from substitute choice lol.

    3) It is possible to substitute Exeter MEng to Exeter BEng in track? Like, it won't tell me I can't apply to Exeter again or anything?

    4) Any other suggestions?

    1) Do you think I'm doing the right thing?
    As I say in your other thread, no. I think, if you're not happy with Southampton, you should find another insurance uni that you prefer. As I say, lots of ABB or less for MEng courses:

    UWE
    Hull
    Lincoln
    LJMU
    Salford
    Sheffield Hallam
    Sussex
    Teesside

    2) How do you change choices in track exactly? I wouldn't know what to do from substitute choice lol.
    From what I've read, you click 'Substitute' and it comes up with a screen where you enter your new course details and submit them.

    3) It is possible to substitute Exeter MEng to Exeter BEng in track? Like, it won't tell me I can't apply to Exeter again or anything?
    Substitute isn't really for course changes within the same uni, so contact Exeter tomorrow and ask about switching - phone them so you get an answer. However, if not, I suppose you could try it.
