I have had my offers for about 4 months now, but I made my decision yesterday and put one university as my firm choice, but shortly later, I started having second thoughts and now think I should have put a different one (the grades are the same for both). (I am not always the best at making decisions...) I know I need to contact UCAS within 14 days, but since I have technically declined the second university, will it still be likely that they will let me change my decision? If I call tomorrow morning, I'm worried it could be too late!!
Thanks

Update: Thanks everyone, UCAS didn't ask me much since I only made the decision 2 days ago, and I feel much more comfortable with this decision. : )

If you are quick I think it's fine. Bear in mind someone could select something accidentally.

I was thinking that, but I was still a bit worried - I suppose they probably wouldn't just say that it's too late if it was a mistake. thank you

Btw, its very normal to start to get anxious at this stage - a little bit worried, a little bit excited, not sure if you have done the right thing etc. Just make sure you are making any changes for the right reasons, and not just having-a-panic that you might change you mind about all over again.

I agree with McGinger! Make sure you're not acting out of "buyer's remorse". If you've thought things through and are sure you want to change, then it's definitely not too late!

Within 14 days you can change your mind without your universities having any choice in the matter.

After 14 days but before mid July you can still change your replies but all the universities involved have to agree. I’ve never known a university refuse to agree to a reply swap before the July deadline.
