Hi I was just wondering if someone could shed some light on this...
im planning on putting my first choice with AA(in chem and maths), only I am predicted a B in Maths which is what they asked for it - Im also taking psychology though which should be an A. What I want to know is if I put my insurance which is AB and I get a B in maths - do I automatically have to accpet the insurance or can the first still accept me if they think I am still worthy of the place? The course is veterinary medicine as well!

The first can still accept you.

You only take up your insurance place if your first choice formally reject you after results, so its worth phoning them on results day to see if they'll still take you even if you don't get the required grades.

I really hope so!! I really want to go to the other uni...so Im not legally bound to go to the second one even though I fulfil their requirements? Only if I get formally rejected through UCAS..youve eased my tension slightly! Its my birthday as well! AHH!

OK

I'm completely sure that it works like this:

You are only contractually obliged to go to your insurance offer if:

A. You fail to meet your offer for your firm choice.
AND
B. You are subsequently rejected by your firm choice.

Last year my brother was accepted by his insurance when the results came out, but later in the week his firm over ruled that by accepting him.

If when the results come out, and for whatever reason you get rejected from your first choice and decide you don't want to go to your insurance choice you can always pull out of the UCAS system for this year.

You won't be able to enter clearing and you'll have to reapply in september, but you get out of having to go somewhere you don't want to.

The other option is not to put an insurance choice at all if it's not a place you'd seriously consider going. Then you still have the possibility of going through clearing this year if your firm choice doesn't accept you.

I didn't make the grades that were offered by my first choice, but they still accepted me anyway, without me having to phone up and beg for them to take me. So it does happen.

for vetinary medicine they probably wont be so leniant, the amount of great applicants they have is scary. they have lots of great people who they rejected with a string of As who would love to take a place, so work hard, get those grades becuase theres aaint much chance of u getting in 2 that course if u dont get the grades
