    I've received a conditional offer at the Birmingham City University, however if I accept it as my firm choice this offer will then be made unconditional. It isn't my first choice but neither do I want to disregard it when deciding just incase I don't get the grades for Leeds Trinity University (the one I would really like to go to), is there any way I could accept Birmingham City but change my mind to Leeds, like still have some chance of getting into Leeds after I get my results?

    Offers that are unconditional if firmed are for the university's benefit - not yours. They will limit your options, as if you accept one you won't be able to have an insurance choice or be able to use Adjustment. This means that if you don't want to go to that uni, don't accept it. The only way you would be able to change your mind afterwards is to use Clearing, and that's a big risk - you'd need to get Birmingham to release you, which can take up to 2 weeks, and then hope that Leeds still had places available at that point (and it's very likely they won't).

    Thank you, this has given me a better understanding of my situation (:
