    I've been accepted onto a school leavers course for accountancy which is what I really want to do. I need a quite modest BBC to confirm my place on it (you have to do their own testing before getting the offer so the BBC is just the grades needed to apply in the first place)

    But anyway I've got offers from the universities I chose on UCAS and people have been suggesting that I make one my firm and another my insurance. The lowest offer I have is from Leicester at BBB. so;

    1) Is there any point in doing this?
    2) If I select a firm and insurance choice, is it okay for me to tell the universities after results day, if I get the results I need, that I no longer want to go? (I don't want to end up facing a fine etc. Everywhere I have looked so far just refers to people wanting to go to different universities or gap years where as I don't want to go at all.

    Oh and just for a bit of weird trivia regarding my choices I applied to do automotive engineering at the universities (I love cars/engineering/physics... but I also love money so went for accounting to keep cars as a hobby)

    I'm planning on taking a gap year as I didn't get apply to the right universities for me, however I've made a conditional choice just in case I don't get the results I'm aiming for. As far as I'm aware you can withdraw your UCAS application at any time and on results day you can just phone the university and ask them to release you from the offer. I'm just going to say that I'm not planning on going to university this year.
