    1. If I don't meet my offer and Imperial won't take me, but I do meet my offer for my insurance (Sheffield), do I need to phone Sheffield and tell them I'm going there or will they already know?

    2. Imperial sent an email saying if we've changed any of the exams we're taking since submitting our UCAS forms we need to tell both them and UCAS. I dropped History in Feb/March time, do I need to tell them about this? This sounds like a stupid question but the head of sixth form told me I didn't need to tell them and I don't really want to alert them to the fact that I've dropped something. Its not actually relevant to my offer.

    1. Yes, I think they sheffield will be automatically informed
    2. Sorry, don't know, but it is always not a mistake to tell universities about what you want them to know, and if there's anything you don't want them to know, then don't tell them!

    Hey there,

    It depends completely on your course of action. For example, when I arrived at Imperial (aaaah 5 years ago scary) I actually didn't meet my initial offer but was accepted into my insurance. However, a few phone calls to Imperial later, I was given an unconditional offer to a related but not identical course (which turned out, in my opinion, to be much better, woohoo). I never notified my insurance.

    Once I accepted the alternate offer from Imperial, my status changed on my insurance from accepted to declined - I am guessing Imperial informed UCAS who made the necessary changes.

    So, in short, it depends on what you do - but whatever you do, it looks like the institutions have the systems in place to update as necessary.
