    So I received my university offers on UCAS around 2 months ago and a couple weeks after that I decided on my firm and insurance. I firmed Leeds for Mechanical Engineering and insured Loughborough for Automotive Materials. However, I feel as though I rushed that decision as I compared both courses and after visiting both universities for applicant days, I much prefer Loughborough as the university as a whole has a better feel along with a course which I feel is much more appealing and interesting. I was wondering whether it was possible to somehow switch my firm and insurance choices around?
    All answers are welcome, thanks

    "Good afternoon,

    I recently made an application to your institution and received an offer. I replied a few weeks ago putting York St John as my insurance but I now wish to change this and make it my firm, would this be at all possible?

    Kind regards,"

    That is exactly what I wrote to them and they replied saying that it was okay and that they had contacted UCAS. They also told me that I had to to contact UCAS to confirm this and I had to contact the other Uni as well as they had to tell UCAS it was okay as well!
