    It depends when you get your last reply. See here: http://www.ucas.com/getting/deadlines/index.html for the deadline dates.

    My form was processed in November and they want my A6SF form in by April 28th - really really nervous now, I know I want Liverpool but I don't know if they'll let me have Edinburgh as my insurance because Liverpool is my lowest offer :confused: I think I'd rather reply on the web - clicking a button is much easier than writing 'D' against all my other offers!

    Yes they will let you do that, just doesn't seem much point!

    Heehee, I know, but I take some sort of odd comfort in knowing that I have an insurance choice, just in case I freak out at the last minute and change my mind!

    You can't change your mind and go to your insurance instead though. If you get the grades for your first choice you're legally bound to go there.

    WHAT?? I thought the unis have until May to tell you their decisions! You've got me really worried now, as I still haven't heard from Durham or St Andrews (and my UCAS form was processed in early October).

    I was told this by a senior tutor at Durham and it quite clearly says 31st March in the booklet you'll have been sent.

    Son't worry, I'm still waiting too!

    the reply differs depending on when you get your final reply... i don't have the actual details with me, but i do know that the April 28th reply date is only if your final uni decision is before 31st March... but if not it can go well into may/june time.
