Hi,
I have got an offer from some unis and I have firmed and insured my choices but I want go to a different uni. I know that I can go through clearing but if i do I will loss my firm choice which is very risky for me. Is there anyway I can apply to the uni but still have the option to go to my firm if the uni I want to apply don't accept me.

Thank you

yes you d have to give up your firm choice, you can use adjustment but you have to exceed your firm offer to be able to do that.

They technically aren't supposed to offer places if you aren't in clearing but you can ask.

You don't have to wait for Clearing.

Unis with vacancies are already advertising them on the UCAS website and will accept applications now via UCAS Extra. You just need to phone the unis with vacancies to discuss the situation and see whether it's worth the risk of giving up your current unis to apply to one of the new unis.
