i feel like i wasn't ambitious enough when applying to universities, I was really insecure with my predicted grades and was scared about getting no offers so i didn't aim for any top or well-known universities. looking back at it, my predicted grades are decent and my personal statement was good so i would have changed at least 3 of the choices i made with better unis like Surrey, Leicester or Southampton but i already have all 5 of my offers back and i'm planning to firm my choices soon. there's probably nothing i can do about it but i just kinda needed to let this out lmao

Just get good A levels then use adjustment, clearing or take a gap. Dont sleepwalk into a uni you are unhappy with. You would regret that.

I totally agree with 999tigger you should concentrate on your A-levels then familiarize yourself with adjustment and clearing procedures for the unis you prefer.Degrees cost too much money to waste doing something you are not going to be happy with.If you end up taking a gap year you can get a job and earn money so you can enjoy your chosen uni even more.That year will go so quickly too.

There is something you could do now, depending on whether your A level predictions are high enough that they meet the entry requirements of better unis. If you are feeling brave enough, you could decline all your offers now, which would then leave you free to apply to other unis straight away via Ucas Extra.

Do you mind saying what your predictions are and what course you are applying for? If this option might interest you, the first step would be to contact Admissions at Surrey, Leicester and Southampton to check whether they do still have vacancies and would be open to a new application from someone with your academics.
