But what if we told you there’s now an easy way to see and change your university options? There is, with the
Whatuni ‘My Final 5’. Here’s what it is and how to use it.
What is the Final Five?
The final five are the universities you’ll send an actual application form to. These are the universities you’d like to go to above all others.
Your shortlist basically.
Then you’ll hear a yes, no or conditional offer from these five universities, and from there you’ll choose your firm (the university you’ll go to if you get the grades), and insurance (your back-up) choices.
It’s a big decision for you, so to help make this process easier we’ve created a ‘My Final 5’ section of the site just for you. Here you can add, swap, delete and re-add your final five options as much and as often as you want.
NOTE: The final 5 page is there to help you create a shortlist. It won't send your application to the university. You still need to go through Track in UCAS in order to do this.
How to Use the Final 5 on Whatuni
The Final 5 area is quick and simple to use. Here’s a 3 step breakdown of how to use it...

There You Have It!
Using this section you’ll not only have a clear record of the universities and courses you’re currently preferring, but you’ll also be able to see if you’ve used up all five option places or whether you’ve still got room to fill.
And you can access it, see it and change it whenever you log into your Whatuni account, even after you’ve confirmed your choices.
But Wait, There’s More...
In the Final 5 area you can also find out more about your university options so you can be sure that you’re picking the right university for you.
The more research you can do of universities the better, which is why we’ll remind you with a handy to-do list of other things you can do to find out more about your options. With just a click of a button, you can also:
