    5 Choices >>> all have invited me for an interview.
    I have my top 3 (UoC, Edge Hill, Chester) and the other two were, to be honest, my fillers so that I could submit the application. UoC have also offered me a conditional place! so I have one of my top 3 in the bag (well, until exam results day).
    Thing is - I already withdrew from one of the filler choices because it's about seven hours away and is tbh too far. That showed up on my ucas straight away. I want to withdraw from the other one and just attend my other top choice interviews but I don't want it to look bad on me from the perspective of the other universities/affect my application to them at all. Could I please have some advice?

    The universities that you had applied will not know where you've applied, and do not really care.

    Don't think the unis can actually see your ucas page so they would never know what is happening with your other choices.

    So you can withdraw from more than 1? Ive been told otherwise but i didnt think it was strictly the case that you could only withdraw one

    No, it's your choice where you want to go to. But, tes, you can withdraw to as many Universities as you like, even more than 3, if you wish to. :yes:

    Thanks
    I thought it made no sense for them only to allow you to withdraw from just one, surely they cant force you to wait for offers
    Dont think id withdraw from anywhere though unless it gets rediculous waiting for an offer from my 5th choice or something

    Unis can only see where your other choices/responses/decisions after you've made you Firm choice.

    If you have no intention of going to the other choices, then you should Withdraw, and sooner rather than later. That way those Unis can make offers to people who actually want to go there.

    My only warning would be to make VERY certain you have a realistic Insurance choice before you dump the other choices - because you cannot get them back, whatever happens between now and next September.

    Lots of TSR advice hereabout making Firm & Insurance choices: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...urance-choices

    You're welcome. They can't force you to. Yes, do wait it out for now, think about your choices before making a final decision. I wish you the best on whatever decision you decide to take!

    Ultimately everyone discards or is discarded from at least four choices.
