    I've got a conditional offer from Gloucestershire Uni, and it's my first choice, they've sent me a letter saying I need to send my accommodation forms by the 31st of March in order to give me the best chance, as it's first come first serve.

    However I can only send the accommodation form once I've accepted them on UCAS as my firm offer, which I would do, but I can't reply to offers until I've had my final interview at Lincoln, which is my backup choice. The problem is that this interview is on the 6th of April, meaning I won't get their decision for about another week after. Therefore it's impossible for me to confirm my firm choice to send off the accommodation form. :mad:

    I don't want to delete Lincoln from my UCAS in order to reply to my other offers as it's my second choice, but I want the best chance of getting halls at Gloucestershire. If I leave it and send off my accommodation once I've got my reply for Lincoln I'm going to be at a serious disadvantage. I have no idea what to do and it's really stressing me out.

    Can anyone help?

    Ring up Gloucestershire and see if they can make an exception to the deadline for you. As you can honestly tell them that they are your firm choice, they might feel more lenient about it. You won't know until you ask.
