    I was just wondering exactly who on here actualy is fine or maby even just as excited about going to their insurance if they don't quite make it in to their first choice uni.

    If I don't get into my first choice (Nottingham) which is probably going to happen, I will be a bit gutted, however, I'm pretty sure that I am still going to be fine with going to Reading, although I do sometimes have the usual doubts which I have overcome now!

    When on here, most of you guys seem to want to go into clearing rather than their insurance, so is there anyone on here that actually would still be fine with going to their insurance?

    if i don't get my first choice....i'm screwed...coz i don't have an insurance...

    if i did have one though...i'd imagine i'd be fine with it....better than not having anywhere to go at all right?

    I REALLY hope I get my first choice, since I'll get rubbish accomidation at my insurance, and won't be 18 before the start of term, so will have the worst freshers week ever. I'll find out on Tuesday, so pray for me or something! (please)

    i want to make my first choice purely because i've got myself all geared up for it. If I had to settle for my second choice (imperial) I would feel gutted I really would. It would take a good few months for me to feel ok about it all. And also I have kind of buggered up the accomodation application for imperial, so I really really really hope I get my first choice grades!

    No I don’t want to go to my insurance! I should have put RH/Lancaster or even Reading but put Brunel as it was my lowest offer (BBC) but I visited the place and hated it . If worst comes to worse Kings won't take me, I'm going to somehow persuade Brunel to release me and go straight through Clearing.

    Nottingham's my insurance. I'm sure I would love it if I went, but I have my heart set on Warwick now so anywhere except there would right now be a disappointment.

    You're expected to get at least 3 As this summer and you applied to random universities just to prove a point :rolleyes: but kings will take you cos you're a clever girly

    durham is my insurance, they ask for higher grades than my first choice, so really if i miss my firm offers grade i also miss my insurance :eek:

    Actually no it wasn't to prove a point and they're not just 'random Universities' thank you very much.

    Also predicted grades are never accurate.

    I would be happy to go to either my first choice or insurance choice. Bad news is my insurance wants ABB so my anxiety about results day comes from whether I'll actually be going to university at all next year! Saying that, however, if I got ABB I'd be disappointed purely because I was trying for higher grades...

    As I already had my a-level results I got all unconditional offers. This meant I had to choose which uni to accept back in April which is a little harsh having to make a final desicion that early!
