    OK i m in a fix .. Well the thing is that I had an unconditional offer for Economics at Cardiff ... I searched EXTRA and found a better course at a better uni .. As a result, I declined all my offers and applied to that uni ! Now I realised that cardiff was right for me and I really want to go there .. they have no places left on the course so I cant apply through EXTRA.
    I contacted the uni and told them that I made a mistake and if they could reinstate my offer ... they said they cant as i negotiating with another uni already !!! I dont know what to do .. I told them Ill withdraw my application from the uni I applied through EXTRA but they still said NO ! I dont know what to do .. Should I eamil them again and ask them to reconsider me ?
    I made such a hasty decision and now I am repenting !!! Need some advice . Can someone help me write a really convincing email to them asking them to reinstate my offer !?

    You've asked them and they said no. You can try again, but i wouldnt hold out.

    If you REALLY think you've made the wrong decision, I guess it'll be worth waiting and reapplying next year. Else, suck it up and face the consequences of your actions.

    Is the other Uni really that bad? You have already made one hasty decision and you still have an opportunity left. Don't make another hasty one! Why not think about this other Uni and go through the process (application, interview?, open day) then if they make you an offer you can either accept or decline.

    It sounds like you're already on a gap year - is that right? If so, I guess it will be rather a disappointment to have to take another one, but unfortunately it sounds like it's out of your hands now.

    I'd say Cardiff's better than Sheffield, personally.

    If I was going to rank the 5 you've mentioned, I'd put it like this:

    Cardiff/Southampton = equal 1st
    Newcastle
    Sheffield
    Loughborough
