    As the title says, I no longer wish to hold my place at my Insurance choice. I have found other courses which I believe will be a better fit for me, both in terms of course content/structure and in terms of my future career. My query is, how do I approach this. From reading through previous threads in the same vein, I have a fair idea but I just wanted some clarification. What term(s) should I use, e.g. withdraw, release? etc.Thanks in advance, Jack.

    Request that they put you into clearing should you not get into your firm choice, just dont use other words incase it causes confusion.

    Thank You for the advice. I have just compiled a message to send and was wondering if you could just take a look to ensure I have taken the correct approach.

    Hello, My name is Jack Ball and I applied to and received an offer to study the Film Studies course at Queens. I no longer want to study this course with you and would rather go into clearing if I missed the requirements for my firm choice. I am sorry to have made this decision but feel that it is no longer the right course for me.Thanks, Jack Ball. My UCAS Personal ID: 00000000000
