Hi
I’ve got an unconditional offer from City for Economics however I have to put them as a firm choice if I want the unconditional. The problem is I also have a conditional offer from UCL (AAB) for Social Sciences.
(I got AAB at AS level)
I’m not feeling extremely confident and I would like to feel secure knowing if I flop I can take the city unconditional but either way I’ll try my best to get the highest grades I can.

My question is: if I accept city as unconditional but end up getting AAA or a better grade, am I able to switch universities to a better one through adjustment? What’s the process? I’ll be abroad during the results period and could possibly get a friend to call on my behalf.

If you firm an unconditional offer then you can't use adjustment - because you have no conditional offer to exceed.

In theory you could reject City on results day and try UCL through clearing, but UCL don't participate in clearing.

ucl may be a much better uni, but economics is a much better course than "social sciences"

Thanks for the replies, is there no way I could “reject” City once I get my grades and go through clearing instead?

If not, could I withdraw my application and apply with the same application for 2019 entry?

(I’d be 20 in December, would that reduce my chances of getting an offer from UCL again?)

To clarify...

Yes, you can reject City and go through clearing - but not for universities such as UCL which don't participate in it.

Yes, you can withdraw and reapply next year.

No, your age wouldn't be a factor if you reapply.
