    I've received offers from all the universities that I've applied to, and now I'm seeing a lot of people firm their choice already? Should i do it now as well? or should i wait till my exams are over? they are currently going on and they end on 28th March, although we won't get our results till like May

    I say firm your choice now so that you can pick your accommodation before it starts getting full.

    Your deadline to decide is May. You might as well wait until you finish your exams in case that changes how you feel about your chances of meeting your offers.

    Universities are forbidden from incentives to firm early. That includes “running out” of accommodation. The majority don’t assign halls until August and even those that do it early have ways to manage bookings so there’s no problem for people who firm in April or may.
