why would it be risky?
And if you really want to do the creative writing maybe write an email to the uni and explain why you can't do the portfolio on time.

I wouldn't just not do the portfolio, that looks quite bad seeing as you might end up with RH being your only offer (if worst comes to worst). Just withdraw from that particular course on UCAS? If you don't want to go there and do that course then you might as well.

Very good point! I think I'll do that, thanks very much

I don't think it would be too risky to withdraw now. I would imagine that RHUL expect applicants for creative writing to already have lots of examples of creative writing that they could submit, rather than expecting you to write something new. If you don't have many examples of creative writing to submit, then the course probably isn't for you, anyway.

However, if this course was intended as your insurance choice, then you may have a bit of a problem if you withdraw from it, and it might be better to try and submit something, just in case that gets you a place.

Well not exactly, as they've set the assignments themselves, so we'd all be sending in creative writing on the same topic.

And nope, it's an AAB course and my insurance is an ABB one (which I've already received from them) :s I would write something halfheartedly but seeing as the course is so competitive and they only admit a 30-32 student cohort, I doubt I'd get a place.

Assuming you don't go through with the creative writing, you might want to withdraw nice and neatly rather than simply not completing the assignment. My reasoning is that if you choose RHUL English as either firm and insurance and get, say, ABC they might look more kindly on you given that you were courteous at this stage rather than just having ignored them.

BTW, what is wrong with having two ABB offers to choose from?
