    Applying to Medicine at Newcastle and University of Birmingham through access schemes. Both require them to be made as firm choices for the access schemes to apply. Do I have to do decide a firm choice when sending the UCAS application as that will mean I can only apply to one of them. Or can I do this later after the conditional offer or rejection is known?

    You can only select firm and insurance choices once you have no more pending offers (i.e. you have acceptances/rejections or have withdrawn your application from all of the universities you applied for).

    Yes. When you've had all your responses back it gives you the option to choose your firm and insurance (although there's no need to do that immediately, you have until the deadline).

    It depends on when you get your last response but for most people, it will be 4. May.
