    I was told by my university that I had a change to my firm choice of course as I missed the grades and UCAS says that I have a place in my insurance course if I don't get the grades for my firm course. Does this mean if I don't accept the change in course, I will be able to go into my insurance course, as I have the grades for it, it is at the same university as my firm choice and I have a place on the course according to UCAS?

    So you missed the grades for your firm and have been given a changed course offer.

    You achieved the grades for your insurance.

    In this situation you can decline a changed course offer and then it will default to your insurance. You may have to wait until after 5pm to do this. You have 5 days to decide whether to accept the changed course offer or not.

    OK thanks! I rang the university and they said no but I don't think I explained it properly! I'll email them now.
