Please help I’m uncertain what to do about my situation. When applying for uni I got an unconditional offer from my first choice having already done my a levels meant they knew my grades etc so I didn’t have to wait until results day this year. However I have now had a change of heart and a few things have changed for me so I therefore feel like I want to go to a uni closer to home however I’ve already accepted my conditional offer. What is the process for me to change my choice or ‘re apply’ I suppose to the right uni, will re applying mean I have to write a new personal statement etc.

Thanks

I think if you contact uni and tell them your circumstances have changed and they may be able to release you from offer allowing you to go into clearing for another uni unless you didn’t use up all five choices

You need to contact the uni you now want to go to and ask if they still have vacancies for your course and if they would be interested in accepting you based on your grades. If they give you a positive response, you could decline your current offer (via UCAS) and would then be eligible to apply to the other uni via UCAS Extra

Was the university that you now want to go to one of your five choices?
Did you get an offer from them?

That’s great.

Ok so if you picked your firm choice on Track within the last 14 days then you should be able to change your replies on Track. If you can’t see the option to do that then ring ucas.

If it has been longer than 14 days then it’s a bit more complicated but still fairly straightforward.
1 ring the university you want as your firm choice. Ask if they will still honour their offer and explain that you want to “change your replies” so that that the case. If they agree ask them to notify ucas of their agreement.
2 ring your current firm and explain the exact same thing.
3. Ring ucas and explain to them too.

Once both universities notify ucas that they agree to the change then ucas will swap your choices over on Track.

How sure are you that you want to go to a different university simply because it's closer to home? I don't know the circumstances, but be very careful that you don't discard your first choice and live to regret it.

if you change your replies (before the 14 days) do they go back to normal ie. as in how they were before you firm/insured, or do you have to pick the new firm/insurance straight away? i already firm and insured but may swap them around at some point after i've visited but it will be after the 14 days then?

You have to be asking for your replies to be changed to the new firm and insurance. It doesn’t just undo your replies - it’s a swap of replies not a reset.
