    Hello everyone

    Basically I now have 4 of my 5 offers. The one that I'm still waiting on is Swansea for Political Communication but I know that I'm not going to firm or insure it. My firm is Cardiff and my insurance is Aberystwyth.

    I know that Universities only give out a certain number of offers. Should I withdraw my application to give someone else a chance? Will it make that difference if I do? Or do I wait just to be able to say I had 5/5 offers?

    Thanks

    If you're certain that you're not going to firm / insure Swansea, then by all means withdraw.

    Don't forget, however, that there's no need to firm and insure yet - you've got months to decide, and there's no advantage in finalising your decision this early (I've seen too many people be "sure" and then change their minds when it's too late!)

    I would really wait until you get a better idea of how the year could end up going for you. It's very early and I would exploit the time you have available.

    Thank you both for your replies

    In all honesty, Swansea was chosen because I wasn't sure I'd get Cardiff and I really want to go to a Welsh university so I can learn Welsh. Since I have both Cardiff and Aber I know those are my favourite 2. I visited Aber the weekend before last to help with a campaign and fell in love with the place again, so that's a definite insurance. Cardiff has the better work experience (I know people in my party who work in Cardiff), research skills as part of the degree and is a better University with better transport links.

    If I miss both on Results Day I'll be trying to get into Sheffield Hallam as again there are people in my party who have a strong presence there so I'll at least get work experience out of it or Bangor for Social Policy as I loved the University so much!

    I will wait a little longer however, as you both advised Thanks again!
