The grades I got weren't close to the ones at my firm choice. However, they are exactly what I need for my insurance. I have two questions, how do firm choices work, do I update track and it will automatically add me to my insurance or do I have to manually accept it and for student finance do I edit the university I go to? Anyone who helps will be a life save because I know at the moment, everyone is going bananas

Your firm choice will choose to either accept you with the grades you have, or reject you. If you are rejected by your firm but meet the grades for your insurance, you'll automatically be placed with them. You'll need to give student finance a call - it's a simple case of changing the university name so shouldn't be an issue.

Track just updated, I recieved an unconditional with changes that are very strange. My university wants me to take geography rather than what I applied for, how do I change it to insurance? do I reply to it and insurance will show up?

Which course did you originally apply for and which university? If you've been offered a totally different option it's worth contacting UCAS. Universities need to offer appropriate/reasonable courses.

With course change offers, it's entirely up to you whether to accept it or not. If you decline it, you'll be placed with your insurance assuming you've met their conditions.

I'm going to call the university up. But the thing is, you see where it says "reply to your offers", am I given a choice for both insurance and my firm choice? So I click it and they'll both appear? because my insurance said that I have a confirmed place there if I don't meet my firm choice. This is really confusing

EDIT: I applied at Queen Mary for Marketing and management which required AAA. They changed it to Geography which also requires AAA even though I didn't get AAA, this is a mistake.

What do you mean when you say you are given a choice for both? Have you been offered a different course for both?

My firm choice has given me an unconditional with changes which seem really strange, UCAS says that my insurance has a confirmed place if I don't meet my firm choice. When I click on "reply to offers" will both choices come up and I'll need to reply to them?

Wow! That is really poor form from the university. I'd certainly suggest contacting UCAS and the university to ask why this has happened and make UCAS aware.

Essentially your choices at the moment are to either accept/decline the changed course and then either be placed with your insurance or be released into Clearing. I wouldn't do anything if I were you until I'd spoken to the university. It may be that they have made an administrative error (hopefully!).

Thanks for the help, but I'm a bit worried. My insurance says its unconditional but am I guaranteed a place there or not? can it be taken from someone else?

If it says unconditional then that place is safe. You definitely have the option of that place. Only if you choose to place yourself in clearing will your place be given up. UCAS works this way to give you time to consider the course change. You have 5 days to make a decision.

so just to finally clarify, when I click on that "Reply to your offers" box, my insurance choice will show up in there?

If you click reply to your offers there should be an option to accept or decline the alternative course change. Take a look and let me know

Sorry for the late response but I admire your help, I called them up and they said they'd thought that offer would have interested me but it did not. I know nothing about geography so I rejected it. Apparently for my insurance, I need to wait for track to update. I think they'll 100% accept me, do you think I should give them a ring?

The moment I rejected that offer I instantly got into my insurance choice. I am now going to Greenwich university so all is good. I am happy today as I come out victorious. I thank you all for your great help and assistance, thank you so much. The good will come back to you all

I may be slightly paranoid but do I have to do anything to confirm that I accept my insurance offer? I didn't get into my firm choice and my insurance now shows as 'unconditional' on Track. There is a button on Track for 'decline' but nothing for 'accept'.

No it's fine, it goes to your insurance automatically if you are unsuccessful at your firm
