UCAS Extra 2024 - is it too much of a risk?

My daughter was not in the best place when she applied - she took a gap year so already had her results and got unconditional offers from them all. She then accepted one. But now she’s super stressed as she think she made the wrong choice and thinks UWE would be better for all sorts of reasons. Better course, better town for her. Her course has availability apparently but does she really have to decline her choice before she can talk to the uni about whether she might be accepted? It seems a weird way of doing things! Any advice or experience anyone? Thank you

It is up to the university whether they will talk to her but ucas rules prevent them making offers. Doing so would be classed as poaching a student from elsewhere.

She has to make a decision on how much she wants to go there but if she wants to use extra she has to decline ALL offers.

If a university has places in extra and a student meets their entry requirements they are very likely to make an offer as they would want to fill their places.
