    Hi everyone

    My firm choice for uni was Computer Science at QUB which required higher grade boundaries than what I received today... However, it still says that they are considering my application.

    My insurance choice though, at Ulster, has given me an unconditional offer. I know that I can't just accept this offer until my firm has made a decision, but QUB's website says that it may take until next Thursday before I hear from them.

    Just wondering if anyone knows if the unconditional offers have an expiry date? As I don't want to risk being left with no offer or uni place!

    Thanks for reading

    I didn't think they had an expiry date. I remember my parents pressurising me to accept my insurance choice before my firm made a decision as they said I would lose it- which I rang the university and they said I wouldn't.

    I have the same problem, but my main worry is accommodation. By the time queens decide to either accept or reject me, all the good rooms will have been given away, both at Belfast and at coleraine (my insurance) ><

    Those *******s did that to me last year, took over a week to get back to me and when they did it was unsuccessful. I was planning on rejecting it myself after the second day of it remaining as 'pending', but when I rang them the guy told me that if it is taking so long it is a good sign and I have a high chance of getting in. I too had an offer from Ulster which I had zero intention of taking. Queens screwed me over big time as a lot of the courses I contacted afterwards in clearing were full.
