    So the title may seem a bit misleading but what i want to ask is do you have to accept or rather go to the uni which you have applied to after you have met your conditional offer requirements on results day?Say i no longer want to do that course and take a gap year?Is it possible to "call it off"?

    No you don't have to go. If you think there's a possibility of you doing this, the main thing to watch out for is not signing anything that financially commits you - eg accommodation contracts.

    Thanks for your fast reply.
    I have not yet signed anything like that with them.
    If this happens however do i just simply contact the university via phone and tell them to cancel my placement?

    I'd recommend asking the university if they will let you defer, if they say yes that will buy you some more time to consider your next steps whilst preserving your place.
