    I know that universities give out many offers.

    However, what percentage of these offers given out tend to confirm that uni as their 1st choice?

    I know it varies for course to course but on avge?

    Leave that confirming till last couple of days until deadline, by then, you should have a clear image of the Uni you want to go.

    It depends on which university and which course. I understand that for the subject I'm applying to, dentistry, the acceptance rate varies from 80% to 40%. Most people who apply to the "best" university will accept the offer if they receive one. The less well regarded course at the less regarded university will have to make more offers to fill their places.
