I've applied to English at university this year, and have received an offer from Sussex for AAA/A*AB. It's 100% the university I want to go to, absolutely love it, however, due to personal reasons I've been having trouble focusing and have noticed my concentration slipping in some areas of my A levels. I'm terrified that it'll mean I won't get the three As i'm predicted.
Sussex will be my firm, for sure, but as for insurance...
I've got an offer from Loughborough for BBB. I like the course, really don't like the atmosphere of the area and university. I also have an offer from Sussex for English and American Studies (when I applied I was going through an American literature obsession) for AAB/A*BB. If I took Loughborough, I wouldn't be where I want to be, but if I took Sussex I wouldn't be doing the whole English course. I'm sure I'd enjoy it, but it wouldn't be what I want. Would I be able to transfer after a year though to a straight English course?
It's a huge dilemma, and I don't want to have to rely on lenience for results day. Any advice?

Ask Sussex now and you may find that they will change your offer so that it is for the straight English course.

Do not rely on being able to change courses once you get to Uni - sometimes its possible but often it isnt. And even if it is, spending half your first term on the 'wrong' course isnt a good way to start Uni. And if isnt possible, then there you are doing a course you dont want for three years.
Either put Loughborough as your Insurance, or leave that blank with the idea that if it all goes wrong on Results Day you will retake and reapply to Sussex again next year.
