    I sent my UCAS off quite early about october/november, thinking my ideal place of uni was in london, particularly Queen Mary's. I was fortunate enough to get offers from all the uni's I applied for including QMU, however now I realize that London life isn't for me and I don't think I'd be comfortable studying and living there.
    So i'm pretty set on rejecting my offers and applying through Extras, but i'm having difficulty finding a Uni.

    I'd like to go to a uni that's in a semi-rural/rural area or somewhere that has a pretty landscape, but still has a good night life. And obviously are good at teaching, as the main reason for uni is to learn.
    I was considering Dundee, Swansea, Exeter, East Anglia, Reading or York.

    Just wondering if anybody has any other uni's that I could maybe look in too, or any opinions on the uni's i'm considering that would help me pick.

    Thanks!

    ((i'm applying for geography, focusing on the physical side of it, and my predicted grades are ABB))

    I thought that i was ready for a change as i live in a quiet village and always have done and thought there would be more jobs there, however i stupidly applied without going to any open days and now i'm in this position...

    First, have a look which universities will be able through Extra. As you will not have choice from all.

    Can I still apply to Extras? and then firm a choice from extras?

    You can't reapply if you already have an offer. So you would need to cancel the choice you made through Extra before reapplying.

    No they don't let you do that. You have one account per cycle.

    You have to have a new UCAS account to apply. That's just standard
