    Hi, if you accept a conditional as a first choice and unconditional as an insurance can you then later change your decision and just go with your insurance choice or are you stuck with that definite decision????

    ALSO! if you do that can you apply for halls for your insurance choice or only your first choice??

    If you change your mind before results day, you can swap between them. But you need to decide about a week before.

    After then, you can't change to your insurance - you'd have to persuade your firm to release you into Clearing.

    And it depends on the uni whether you apply for accommodation or not.

    Wait, you can swap your choices anytime up till the week before results day or do you mean you're only allowed to swap a week after you made your firm and insurance choices?
    I always thought it was the latter

    You have 7 days to change completely.

    After that, you can ask the unis to swap - so your firm and insurance switch places - or for your firm to go away so your insurance is your firm and you have no new insurance. They don't have to agree, but at the same time they don't want people who don't want to go there.

    It's not guaranteed you'll be able to swap, and you can only swap between the two you picked.

    And it depends on the unis whether you apply for accommodation for your insurance. Ask them
