    Hi im thinking of using ucas extra, but as it is i already have 2 offers so i dont want to risk them for unis on extra that i wouldnt get offers from.
    Should I email the unis im interested in first before applying to see if i have a chance of getting an offer?
    If so what should i say? as i dont want them to just give me the entry requirements i could find on their website.

    Email is no use at this stage; time is important. You should telephone the admissions tutors, ask if they can still make offers and push them to give you a realistic indication of how you stand in terms of getting an offer. If you don't want to risk what you have all this is important.
