    I've got my offer back from University Of Birmingham at the grades I want but my second choice is offering me an unconditional and the security would mean I could maybe put a bit more time into my extra curricular stuff without the worry about the difference between an A and an A*
    Do universities offer interviews for changing offers? I think I could do well in an interview and properly talk about all the other stuff I've done outside of school.
    Has anyone ever tried this, does asking work?
    Thanks!

    Universities might offer you lower entry requirements if they did interviews anyway but they won't take request for interviews for a lower offer. If your second choice is offering you an unconditional if firm, it's likely they could take you if you missed your offer so stick to insuring them and put birmingham as your first choices.
