    Hi there, anyone have any advice for someone in my position would be appreciated. My application to my first choice, Birmingham Uni, is still pending decision and my second choice, Bristol Uni, have said i have to accept their offer by today. I have spoken to Birmingham on the phone and they could not confirm that they will give me a decision by today.

    ANY ADVISE WELCOME.

    You can accept the offer and decline it later though check if a deposit is required.

    Look at he terms of withdrawal from Bristol. It may be you can accept but withdraw without penalty within a limited time.

    I would run, not walk, away from any uni which still couldn't give you a decision about whether they offer you a place, a matter of days before the start of a course. Either Birmingham don't really want you there, or their admin is in utter chaos. Sounds like you'd be better off out of it either way.

    I'm in nearly the exact same situation, I had a deadline to accept my offer for my second choice on the 7th of August, accepted and payed deposit as it was required, now my first choice, Imperial, has said they are now making the decision, however second choice enrolment is ending in 3 days???!?!!
