Firm and insurance offersMay 2019
My son has a firm choice and an insurance choice in mind. If he gets the grades for the firm choice, is it still possible to accept the insurance choice instead?
Yes, your son should be able to change his mind at results time, providing his insurance choice has places available. In August, as soon as the results are published, he will receive the notification through UCAS if his firm choice – CF – has accepted him. If your son decides that he'd really prefer his second choice university – his CI, he must contact the university and ask if they will offer him a place. If they agree, your son will need to be released by his CF. The formalities will be sorted out through UCAS. Do bear in mind that there might be some drawbacks to a last minute change such as accommodation being scarce by August. If he changes his mind before results, it might be worth contacting the CI university sooner rather than later.
