    Hello all, for UCAS I have selected the 5 courses I would like to go for and have always overheard people talking about "first choice" etc, I have not got the option to pick what courses are my preferred choice, do I need to add a course with the first course being added being my preferred choice or is this not a thing/ done after application is sent away

    Thanks

    Nope, when people say 'first choice' , they usually mean the university they would like to go to preferably. As far as i'm aware, when you put the courses into your application, they get listed in alphabetical order.

    Thanks guys, was really worried there! So if you get offers why would you say what your preferred offer is? Like what if you get an unconditional why would you need to say i want this the most?

    You can only go to one place. If you get three offers, you're going to have to choose. You choose the one you like most as your firm and your second favourite is your insurance. You reject the third. If you get an unconditional, and you want to go there, you have to reject the other places so they won't be expecting you to turn up. They can give the other places to someone else.
