Turning down insurance.Watch
Now ive heard that you cant turn down insurance offers if you make the conditional grades, and also that unis can still accept you if you get slightly lower. Would there ever be a situation where your insurance would make you a lower offer after you failed to get the conditional grades (without you asking), and if so could you turn it down. Its an odd question but there is some reason behind it...
If you are confused I suggest that you phone up UCAS and ask them, they will be able to give you the full picture.
I think that theoretically even if you didn't get the grades for your insurance shoice, then they see your grades and so could accept you without you phoning them up, although I would say it was unlikely but I'm not sure.
So if you don't wanna go somewhere, don't pick it!
Sorry if this has been answered anywhere else, it's just i need to clarify this before making my choices.
If you've applied for 2005 entry and you miss your firm (and they wont accept you with lower grades) but meet your insurance offer then you are obliged to either go to your insurance or drop out of UCAS and apply again for entry in 2006.
It's possible to pursuade your insurance uni to release you if you have a good reason for not wanting to go there anymore - if that's the case then you can enter clearing and try and find a place elsewhere. But it's a lot more time consuming than simply not having an insurance that you don't want to go to.
Noone can force you to go to university though - the only restrictions are on whether you can apply to more places (through clearing) in the SAME APPLICATIONS CYCLE.
I only ask because i'm not sure about my insurance choice at the moment.
