Withdrawing from offers & Adjustment


I currently hold a firm offer of BBB to do Computer Science at university. If, for example, I achieved much higher grades than I thought I would and I was unable to secure a place at a better university through Adjustment - is it possible to withdraw from your firm/insurance choices on results day and reapply next year? I understand that people strongly advise against doing it but I want to be aware of my choices on the big day.

Thank you

Hi Kane,

Yes, it is possible to withdraw before starting the course, either because you have been successful in Adjustment or have decided to re-apply for 2017 entry.

The best advice is to concentrate on getting the best possible exam results now.

Good luck with everything!
