    I got offers from both Kings and QMUL, I'd love to go to either. But I don't know which to make firm and insurance. QMUL requires you to firm them before they can offer you accommodation.
    My plan had always been to firm Kings and put QMUL as my insurance, which I think makes sense because entry requirements for QMUL are lower. Although I'd be fine with either of them, I think out of the two, I'd prefer to go to Kings.
    So I'm not really sure what to do? I don't want to possibly get into QMUL and not be able to live in accommodation because I didn't firm it. But I don't want to risk putting a uni with higher entry requirements as my insurance, either. And like I said, ideally I would prefer Kings. Do you think it'd be possible IF I got the grades, to reject QMUL and go to Kings intead, or na?

    It's far too soon to make a decision ... just wait until nearer the deadline.

    If you put QMUL as your firm and get accepted on results day then your insurance choice disappears. The only way then of getting into King's would be to reject QMUL and try clearing. Not a sound strategy.
