    Hi
    I just received all my offers and I've narrowed it down between University of Birmingham and University of Nottingham. UOB have given me an con offer AAA (will be AAB if i make them my firm) and UON have done the same but will give me an unconditional if I make them my firm. I'd rather study at UOB but the unconditional offer is persuasive.

    So, if I accept UON and get AAA will I be able to adjust and apply to UOB for the course I already applied for?

    Thanks

    If your offer is unconditional before A level results day then you wont be eligible to use adjustment.

    Don't let the Unconditional If Firm clause affect your decision making. Firm the course (and university) you prefer.

    This. There is no point having a guaranteed place at a university if you are going to spend several years of your time there wishing you were somewhere else.

    I do agree with what you are all saying, I do really like Nottingham also and am leaning more to that at the moment. I have a UOB UCAS day this Saturday so then I can decided which I prefer

    People should start going back to the universities and say "I want to make you my firm, I really like your uni, but I also want to know that if, IF I way exceed your offer I COULD go somewhere else. So I'm not going to firm you because your pita uncond if firm is messing that up and actually putting me off."
