Do the universities you have a place at know what you hold as your insurance?

I've got an offer (which I've accepted) for York this year. Does york know that I don't have an insurance?

They shouldn't do, as everything goes through UCAS (ie UCAS tells each uni you've asked for a place, each uni tells UCAS whether they've accepted you or not and then UCAS tells you what each uni has decided). You might want to ask PencilQueen though, I'm sure she'll know

Yes they will - once you make a decision (ie pick your firm and insurance (or not)) all of the information that is withheld from uni's (where you've applied, which courses and what your offers were) is made available to all of the uni's you've applied to.

Whether they'll actually look at or be interested in this information is another matter...
That's right.

I think this information is valuable to universities as they gain more information about trends in applicants' choices and what the direct competition is. The more statistics that a university has, the better the decisaions it can make.

if i were an AT i damn well would! or perhaps i'm just nosy..

but surely it would be interesting if you were, say, a medical admissions tutor at southampton, who rejected someone without interview to see whether the other 3 unis who did all call person X for interview had the same opinions as you on the candidate..

hmm.. so is there a chance that an admissions tutor will feel for you on results day if you didn't get the grades and you didn't have an insurance, and be a teeny bit more lenient?

well i'm hoping they'll be a bit more forgiving with me because my firm and insurance are the same unversity!

i hope they will remember this, and that i've ordered the prospectuses and other leaflets from them, and been to every open day that i can. and that i've returned any forms to them as soon as i possibly can (i.e next day)! they better bloody had remember, anyway!

me? desperate?

YES!
