What happens next? Making your decision When you have received offers from all universities, UCAS will send you an email to say there’s been an update. You will then need to go through UCAS Track to make your replies. You’ll have a deadline shown in Track of when to do this by – how much time you have depends on the time of year, varying from a week to five weeks.
Replying to an offer Firm acceptance -This is your first choice. If it’s an unconditional offer, the place is yours! If it’s conditional, the place is yours if you meet the entry requirements. So just in case you don’t, you can pick a second offer as a backup – your insurance acceptance. Insurance acceptance -The backup choice to a conditional firm acceptance. If you’re choosing an insurance choice, go for a course with lower entry requirements,
but make sure it’s somewhere you’d still like to study. Remember, you will only attend your insurance choice course if you don’t meet the requirements of your firm choice, but you do meet the conditions of your insurance. You can’t choose between your firm and insurance course when you get your results, so make sure you’re happy with your firm and insurance choice by doing as much research into the course and institution as you can. Decline You will then need to decline all other offers. Or if you decide you don’t want to accept any of the offers, you can decline them all and you may be eligible to use the UCAS Extra service. In Extra, you can apply for any course with vacancies and hopefully secure an offer before the summer.
