    I've received all my offers and I know which uni I want to choose as my firm and I know which I want to use as my insurance. I'm not really interested in the applicant days as they are quite far away and stuff.

    Should I just reply? Are there any disadvantages/advantages to replying now?

    By the sounds of it, you got an unconditional offer? I think i'm right in saying that, you can click 'firm' on an unconditional offer and if you've met the required grades, you'd get that place.

    But no, there's no disadvantages/advantages to replying now. I think it'll give you peace of mind that you've got your place and it's all confirmed.

    There is absolutely no problem with responding to your offers now, or one day before the deadline.

    As long as you've decided on your firm and insurance, then you can go ahead and reply

    You have to be 100% certain. Have you visited these universities? Dumb question, I know, but I know people who haven't actually gone to the university and when they see it, they hate it. But if you're happy, do it

    No, but you may as well wait. Your opinions on each uni could change a lot in a short space of time for various reasons. The offers aren't going to run away, so yeah i'd wait if I were you and it's really worth going to some open days if you can.

    If you are 100% sure then it's not too early. I replied to my offer last year in November. However, it may be worth waiting as your opinion may change after visit days etc.

    There is no harm in replying now if you are certain you have made the right decision. But you'd be aswell wait just incase you change your mind, since there is no benefit to replying now either.

    You might as well wait until after your January exams if you have any. Then you would be able to feel how they went - if you think that any were really bad you may want to consider choosing a lower insurance. However, it is unwise to choose somewhere solely based on requirements as universities can sometimes be flexible. You may also wish to look into Clearing.
