    No, you don't need to use all five of your choices. If you don't use all of your choices when you initially send your application to UCAS, you can add another choice/more choices later on in Track

    You don't need to use all 5 choices although many people advise that you do!

    No, you don't, but once you've paid the fee for a full application, you can add two more later if you change your mind, at no extra cost.

    I put only one course on my UCAS application. I had to go to my local uni and was only interested in that one course.

    You need to be comfortable about what you plan to do if you don't get offers from any of your three courses, or you get offers but don't meet any of them. It's*certainly fine to put fewer than five if you're sure that's what you want. There's no point ending up on a course or at a uni for which you have no enthusiasm.*

    Thank you all for the great replies. I'm only going to go with 3 then!
    If all does not go to plan at least I have 2 extra choices
