If you want to go to Notts then why wait for the offers?
My mum is resistant to me withdrawing even though I’ve explained to her the situation, my dad is on my side tho

No, it was a separate email just about the offer-holder day booking. I received my offer on the 19th and then the email was sent on the 22nd, so they may take a few days to send it

When you firm a uni do you have to put your insurance down too? Like could I firm Notts and pick my accommodation before I've heard back from the others and choose which to insure later or do I have to wait until I know my insurance?

As I remember, you have to do both at the same time. So for some people if they know their Firm and are unsure about who to Insure and are still waiting for offers then they would need to wait to make an overall decision.
As mentioned previously for myself last year I had two offers come very quick and they happened to be my Top 2. I could have waited for the other offers to come through but for me the grades they would have offered would have been the same ie AAA. For some people a waited offer could be a lower grade if contextual so they may wish to hang fire. It was more important for me to secure my first choice accommodation so withdrew from the others and Firmed/Insured as I had my two favourite Unis. Some people don't rank I did and it helped me make a quick decision. Its all down to the individual and where they are with offers still due to come in, have they had more than 2 so can firm and Insure, will the offers due be a contextual offer grade which could help? I hope this helps anyone unsure. There is no right or wrong way deciding just do what is right for you.

Hey guys, I'll still be able to choose my preferred accommodation options if I wait to hear from all my offers (could take as long as May) right? Like will they run out by then?

Are all exams at Nottingham Multiple Choice or do they have essay type exam questions too? I know that many other unis are multi choice only and that may be a factor in making a final decision.
