    Okay before I get into details I know getting an unconditional offer is rare but I want to increase my chances in every way.

    Since their is only one university close enough for me to live at home and meets my requirements, I've only applied for it on UCAS. But I was wondering if this would reduce my chances of getting a unconditional offer since they could see I'm only applying for them and will come to them no matter what.

    I have read on the UCAS website universities can't see your other choices but it wasn't too clear about this.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would think it makes no difference either way. If the uni is not in the habit of giving unconditional, then am not sure why they would change for you?

    If you already have your grades, then they might consider it based on those.

    Your university choices don't know how many (if any) other choices you have applied to, until after you make you Firm/Insurance decision.

    Even if you aren't at all interested in other universities, YOU MAY AS WELL APPLY, I mean even if you get a place and you end up rejecting it, you haven't lost anything, a lot could change in 6 months, maybe you'll change your mind or your situation could change slightly.
    It sounds bad but BE SELFISH! There's absolutely no harm in applying to one ur not too sure about, it's great to give yourself a "just incase" option.
