    I know the said thing is to put your firm and then your insurance has lower grades. I have realised that out of my university choices, the one I most want to go to has the lowest grades. If I firmed this and my insurance was one grade higher and at results day I got the higher grades and actually wanted to go to my insurance could I do that or do I have to go through adjustment? Thanks!

    Out of curiosity why would you change you mind over which uni you liked best on results day?

    Do as much research as you can on the courses offered and based on that info and other issues like location decide which you like best. Assuming that all your offers are reasonably attainable grades then put the course you like best as Firm. Doesn't matter if that is the lowest. It is ok to put a higher offer uni as Insurance because there is a slim chance they'll accept you even if you miss your Firm grades.

    If your Firm choice uni accepts you your Insurance offer automatically disappears.

    and you have until may to make it. Don't rush in.

    On results day your firm choice gets first refusal on you even if you miss the conditions. If you exceed your firm offer then you could look elsewhere for a place via adjustment but you cannot opt to go to your insurance without the agreement of all the unis concerned.
