    I have applied to 5 universities earlier this month, Nottingham Trent, Sheffield, Leeds (not Hallam or Beckett), Coventry and Leicester. I received 2 conditional offers from Coventry and Leicester and one unconditional from Nottingham. I don't know what to do, it is my fourth choice and they are below the top 50 but they have high post graduate employment and recently invested millions into their facilities also this is the only uni which I actually bothered to visit . Should I accept and slightly relax before my A-levels? Or should I **** myself daily and cry myself to sleep and hope that I will get AAA and get accepted into Leeds or Sheffield, AAA for me is highly unlikely, I'm so lost in life. Help me boys, and girls.
    P.S anyone from Nottingham Trent? Is it full of meatheads or is it an actual intellectual place with some decent people?
    P.P.S I still haven't heard back from Sheffield or Leeds. Bunch of racists.

    I wouldn't. This is not your first choice then why should you choose it? Don't feel pressured by this unconditional offer and do as you would if it was a conditional. I would be stupid to settle for Nottingham Trent because you feel like you won't achieve AAA. Try! If you get AAB Sheffield or Leeds might still accept you. What I'm trying to say is don't have regrets, choose what YOU WANT then work to achieve the offer. Don't let that bait distract you from your dream uni.

    I'm not sure that's a possibility. I THINK that if you firm an unconditional, you don't have an insurance so...

    No if you firm an Unconditional you will not have an insurance at all.

    Ignore the Unconditional aspect of any offers when deciding your choices.

    Thinking like that probably means you haven't got the intellectual capacity to study at either institution.

    I don't think you can, from what I know if you accept unconditional it kind of means that you are definitely going to that uni. And thank you! It's law btw
