    Okay, the thing is I applied through CAO for the sake of having more options, but never really thought anything would come of it. But last week I got an offer from Trinity and decided not to accept it because I was set on going to Southampton for Law. However, this morning I checked my CAO application and I have ANOTHER offer from Trinity- but this one is even higher on my list of preference- its 3rd. This has thrown a real spanner in the works now, as I don't know what I want to do- Trinity offered me Maths/Philosophy. I love Maths, always have, and it was by far my most favourite and most successful A-Level. But I eventually want a career in Law. Basically, how would I go about withdrawing from Southampton now that I've accepted it, sent back AS12 form, accepted accommodation etc...

    Contact the uni, and tell them you won't be going. You might need to write a letter, but phone first to see.

    Yep, at this late stage, it's really only the uni itself that can help you, so phone them and tell them you've changed your mind since sending back the AS12 letter. They can then offer your accommodation to someone on a waiting list who applied as an insurance choice or through Clearing, so that won't be a problem.

    Thank you very much Juno and kellywood! So basically, it's just a case of ringing the Southampton, explaining I won't be going in October and apologising! Shall be up early on Monday morning to get it all sorted...:rolleyes:

    Yea thats all you will need to do, although depending on their policies re. accommodation deposits you may lose yours.

    I withdrew from my place at Leicester Uni (and accommodation, and loans ) just last week. I just sent an e-mail to them explaining my situation, and they sent one back pretty much straight away to say I'd been 'released from the university place'. It shouldn't cause too much of a problem so don't worry.

    It shouldn't be too bad if you phone them, they shouldn't force you to take the place - although don't forget your finance stuff too!

    Congrats mate, you'll love going to Trinners it's such a great place! Don't worry about getting into Law later on, there's always the conversion course, loads of lawyers didn't do law at uni it's not a problem
