    Hι! I had exact same concern before sending my applications. However, my school counsellor explained me that it wont affect my chances, since it is not binding. Once you get into university you have the option to choose not to go for a placement year. Apart from this, in most cases universities do not assure you a spot in a company. You will need to find a position yourself. In case you dont, you will continue your final year in the university as you would if you had not applied for a sandwich course. Hence, feel confident to apply for the sandwich course.
