Hey there!

I just wanted to reply and say good luck with everything and don't be afraid to take your time to make a decision. I went through UCAS over 3 years ago now and it was super stressful for me too. Read over the courses on the websites again and look at all the offers to make sure you can achieve the grades the universities are asking.

I hope everything works out for you

When making a decision about a college or university, I encourage you to really take your time. I know it's a stressful situation for you - which is why you need to take your time and assess all of the options thoroughly. Ultimately, each option will have its pros and cons, but you'll need to make the decision that you feel is best for you.

I just turned down three offers in the UK - Oxford, Cambridge, and LSE - because I realized that I'm not in a position to move to the UK for the next couple of years. Instead, I am pursuing other options in Toronto while finishing up my degree. A lot of people thought I was making a mistake by turning down offers from those three schools but I felt it was the right decision for me. Don't let other people make this decision for you; it needs to come directly from you.

Good luck.

Definitely take your time. Last year I applied to UCAS for a media course and changed one course to a psych course, and so only gave myself one option for the course I really wanted to study. I ended up leaving and I've reapplied this year to others so I know I have a better choice. Don't rush it and weigh up your options. I've accepted my first choice for this year now and I know I'm feeling so much more confident about it!

Try not to stress about it too much, I went through UCAS and all that last year to study Paediatric Nursing. I spent ages stressing over where I was going to accept and when results day came I decided to go to a completely different uni anyway and I love it now.
Just look at the courses again and where you want to go and take your time to decide, everything happens for a reason and I'm sure whatever you choose will work out

Re: UCAS - April 5th 2014, 12:39 PM

I accepted the offer from my first choice uni as soon as I received it, which means I withdrew from one my offers since they hadn't replied at that point xD

That was over 3 months ago and I'm still pretty set on that one uni. The only advice I have is to be realistic. There was one uni I kinda wanted to go to and I was torn between that and my first choice, but the grade requirements for this uni were higher than what I, realistically, thought I was gonna achieve. Aim high, but not unrealistically high- you don't want to over pressurize yourself come exam time :P

Psychology by the way, you?

Take as long as you need.
