hey. i wanna do that 2. i put northumbria as my firm choice and York as my insurance choice but now i'd prefer 2 go 2 york. I looked @ a UCAS leaflet and it sed that it was only poss 2 change if family problems or circumstances or due to human error. I think u'll just hav 2 fone UCAS and ask them outright..all they can say is no or yes so its worth a try. good luc. x

Duh ! That was a bit daft weren't it. This is why you should take your time (as much as you have got before your reply deadline) to decide.

Once you have accepted a place as firm you are very much legally obligued to attend if you achieve the grades defined in their offer.

Ring UCAS, see what they have to say...

i e-mailed my insurance choice about this a while ago, and the prof of engineering, not a stupid admin person, told me that if you contact UCAS you can change from yur firm to insurance, BUT I think the important issue is if the insurance uni is able to and willing to do this. Contact the Uni and if they say yes you can contact UCAS.

Hmmm, I'm not sure you can change without withdrawing from UCAS and re applyiong next year. When you accept offers from UCAS you are entering into a legally binding contract with two results: either you go to your university (firm choice if you get the grades, insurance if you don't) or withdraw completely and try again next year. Obviously phone them and check, but from what I understand, this is how it works.

Yeah, that's right. It also depends if your firm choice is willing to release you or not.
