    Can I reject an early entry offer later?

    I’m thinking of applying for early entry, but the uni I really want doesn’t do it. I’m not sure if I’ll get into the course so my plan is to do early entry for other courses. However, if I do get accepted into the original course, can I reject any early entry offers I may have received/ accepted?
