    I have had 3 offers back from my uni choices and still awaiting one more to come, so have to now make my Firm and Insurance choices.
    I have an unconditional offer from Salford, but I want to use that as my Insurance choice with my Firm choice being Leeds, which I am waiting for the offer to come.
    I am pretty sure the Leeds offer will be conditional, so question is - what should I do?
    Thoughts anyone
    Thanks

    Wait for Leeds, then its up to you. I would go for the Leeds offer and back yourself to get the grades.
    Check the Salford to see what happens when you put it as insurance. It may pnly be unconditional if it is your firm.

    Don't rush. You don't have to choose until May at the earliest, so you have loads of time to see what Leeds offer and decide what to do.

    Juno, thanks for the advice. Leeds responded today, oddly enough and its conditional based on grades.
    The Salford offer appears to be unconditional irrespective of Firm or Insurance, but will do a bit of research first

    Thanks again

    999tigger - thanks, Leeds have replied today with a conditional offer. Think I'll go for Leeds as Firm as you suggest, as Salford appears there irrespective of choice

    Thanks again for your reply

    Seems a no brainer then. Unconditionals tend only to be so if you make it firm, but not for you. GL.
