Your Situation: Edge Hill is My Insurance Choice

We’ve outlined below the different scenarios you might find yourself in when you receive your results if you applied to Edge Hill University through UCAS and made us your Insurance choice.

Scenario 1: I accepted an offer from Edge Hill University as my Insurance choice. I haven’t received my results yet but I now want to study at Edge Hill instead of my Firm choice.

If you accepted an offer of a place from Edge Hill University as your Insurance choice but now wish to study with us instead of your Firm choice, our Clearing team can assist you.

If you are still to receive your results, please complete our insurance choice form and we’ll get in touch with you to discuss your options.

Scenario 2: I’ve met or exceeded the conditions of the offer I accepted from Edge Hill University as my Insurance choice, as well as meeting the conditions of my Firm choice elsewhere.

If you made Edge Hill University your Insurance choice but meet or exceed the conditions of your Firm choice offer from another institution, your place at that University will be automatically confirmed through UCAS.

By meeting or exceeding the conditions of your Firm choice offer, however, you will also become eligible for UCAS Adjustment. This means that if you would now prefer to study elsewhere, including at Edge Hill University, UCAS Adjustment will enable you to seek a place with us.

If you choose to use UCAS Adjustment, you will need to:

  • Register for UCAS Adjustment through UCAS Track. Once registered, you will have up to five days, depending on when your Firm choice offer is confirmed, in which to secure an alternative place;
  • Contact our Adjustment team, ensuring that you have your UCAS Personal ID number and your results to hand. We will be happy to discuss course options with you and will be able to provide instant decisions to most enquirers;
  • Decide if you wish to accept any offer of a place that we might make. You can only receive one formal offer through UCAS Adjustment so you may wish to gather information on suitable course vacancies before making a final decision. If we make you a verbal offer and you wish to accept it, we will send you a formal offer through UCAS Track.

The Adjustment period starts on Tuesday 10 August 2021 and ends on Tuesday 31 August 2021.

Scenario 3: I’ve met or exceeded the conditions of the offer I accepted from Edge Hill University as my Insurance choice but did not get the results I needed for my Firm choice elsewhere.

If you meet or exceed the conditions of your Insurance choice at Edge Hill University but do not meet the conditions of your Firm choice elsewhere, your place at your Firm choice may still be confirmed, particularly if you only narrowly miss out on the grades or UCAS Tariff points required. You should refer to UCAS Track on the day you receive your results for clarification.

If your Firm choice decide to accept you but you want to change your mind and come to Edge Hill University, please contact our Clearing team, ensuring that you have your UCAS Personal ID number to hand, and we will be happy to look into your options.

If your place at your Firm choice is not confirmed but you meet the conditions of an Insurance choice offer from Edge Hill University, your place with us will be automatically confirmed through UCAS. Our Admissions Office will also send you a Confirmation of Place notification.

Scenario 4: I’ve not met the conditions of the offer I accepted from Edge Hill University as my Insurance choice.

In some circumstances, even if your results do not quite meet your offer conditions, you may still secure a place on your chosen degree with us.

Alternatively, if we cannot accept you onto your original choice of course, we may be able to offer you a place on an alternative programme.

Please contact our Clearing team, ensuring that you have your UCAS Personal ID number and your results to hand, and we will be happy to advise you.

From A Level Results Day on Tuesday 10 August 2021, we will be able to provide instant decisions to most enquirers.
