    For a while now I've been thinking of swapping my insurance choice for another of the universities I was offered a place at, as I'm unsure of getting in at my current insurance choice, which means it may not be a very logical insurance... I read on the UCAS website that the deadline for being able to do this was the 30th June, however, when talking to the university I'm thinking of changing to, they told that this had been extended and that the deadline was now the 7th July. Now, I have contacted the insurance choice I'm currently with, and they have told me that the deadline they have is actually the 24th of July. However, they have advised I contact UCAS which I have tried to do, however I've had no reply from my email, and on ringing them have been told they are closed until the 7th. Could anyone tell me when the deadline actually is?

    Also, if I do decide to change, and the deadline is actually the 7th, does anyone have any recommendations as to how I should inform UCAS, as I've been told by the uni I'm thinking of changing to that most uni's close for the weekend on the 5th, so I'd need to let them know before that happens. But obviously I cant change without informing UCAS as well, and if they are closed at the moment, then this does raise some serious problems.

    Many thanks...

    You had 7 days from when you chose your firm and insurance to make this change. Now, you can get rid of either your firm or insurance (or both) but can't pick a new one in its place.
