    Since replying to my universities a couple months ago, I've since decided that I really would much rather go to my insurance choice than my firm.
    Now, my question is, is it possible for me to switch them around (i.e. change my insurance to firm and firm to insurance)?
    I know that I can essentially reject my firm offer and change my insurance to a firm (although I'm not exactly sure how, so if you could enlighten me on that too it would be helpful) but would this be advisable because it would essentially leave me with only 1 choice come results day, and I would much rather go to the university "I'd rather not go to" than none at all.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can't reject your firm - I don't know where you got that idea from.

    It is still possible to switch though - call UCAS, explain what you want then call both universities. When both universities give UCAS the ok then they'll switch your firm and insurance around.

    It can take a week or two and needs to be sorted by July so if you're sure then get on with it (a lot of universities have end May deadlines for accommodation guarantee)

    Okay, I guess I must have misinterpreted/misunderstood on the rejecting your form part.

    But if you're saying that I can switch my insurance and firm around then that's very reassuring, I guess I'll give UCAS a call today, thanks a lot boss.
