    I have recieved an offer from King's and I live in Ireland although I am Chinese, I do satisfy all the conditions for Home student fee status. However King's have categorized me as Overseas (ie paying for the 10 grand a year) and to contact them if they got it wrong before I accept the offer. The thing is I had no idea this was going to happen as I did state that I was counted as an EU National in the UCAS system and I accepted the offer. It was only today when I got my Kings letter that I found out. So do you think that now I've accepted the offer means that I will have to pay the higher fee even though they buggered up?

    Has this happened to anyone...it's Good Friday and I can't ring them and my UCAS 14 days on reply is up on the 19th when the UCAS phoneline opens again..ugh

    Anyone?

    There's nothing you can do here except to call Kings up first thing Tuesday morning and inform them of your situation. I don't think they'd be so uptight about it and refuse to look into your case just because you've already accidentally accepted your offer.

    Generally once you have made a decision on UCAS, you have up to 14 days to revert by contacting UCAS.
