    Bit of a long shot- I applied for my university options back in October and made my firm and insurance in December, however I recently went to Bristol for a weekend for the first time and fell in love with everything about it. I realised how much I liked the place, much more than my firm and insurance choice, and how much I’d like to go to uni there after a look at the course online ect.
    I remember at a uni talk at college from an admissions worker at Goldsmiths University that people do ring up on results day if they’ve done better than expected to ask for a place even though the university wasn’t ever a choice on your application.
    What is your opinions on this, and the likelyhood of this happening?
    The entry requirements are AAA and I’m predicted A*AA and the course is BA English.

    It might be worth contacting Bristol now and explaining your situation. They might (it’s a long shot) de willing to consider you through extra so you can get the seap sorted in a few months instead of leaving it until results day.

    Even if they are not open for extra by ringing you’re showing an early interest and aren’t such a risky choice in August.
