Heya! I (luckily) was able to get an offer from my first choice of university (they were the first ones to offer me a place too), would it be alright for me to withdraw from my other choices? I don't really want to go through the stress and trouble of interviewing with them if I have no intention of going there, let alone worrying about getting a place with them. I've currently got two of my other places asking for an interview and the other two have asked for/have my portfolio and I'm waiting for a response. I probably won't withdraw from them straight away because it's not that urgent, I'm just wondering if it's a normal thing to do? Hopefully that makes sense, thank you!

Animation! I actually didn't have to be interviewed for the uni I ended up accepting which was surprising, they just looked at my portfolio. I know one of my friends got accepted into a similar course solely from their personal statement as well.

If your offer is unconditional then that's fine. If it depends on you achieving specific grades then you may want another offer with lower grade requirements as your insurance choice.

My offer is conditional, but I need a merit/120 points to be able to get in. All of my choices are competitive universities so I doubt that their conditions would be lower than the one I currently have.

If you're 100% sure you won't be accepting offers from the other Uni's then it's fine to withdraw. It saves wasting your time, but it also prevents them wasting their time considering your application too. It may even mean somebody else gets an interview who otherwise wouldn't have done.

What precisely do you gain from taking such drastic action so early?

Wouldn't exactly gain anything, I just kinda want to get it out of the way. I 100% know I want to go to my top choice and won't be changing my mind, so I don't see the point in having the other options if I'm not going to go to them.

What happens if you don't get the required merit?

Considering the fact I'm currently working at a distinction I'd like to have faith in myself that I can get that merit

Fair enough. As long as you're happy that if something goes disastrously wrong or something happens that causes you to change your mind then your fallback is clearing.
