    So my original course was Chemistry. But recently, I've been thinking that it's not a good fit for me. I've looked up psychology as I've always had an interest in it and it looks much more interesting and much more appealing to me. I've looked at multiple universities and looked into the course in detail.

    The problem is:
    1. I haven't actually done Psychology at ALevel however, I would definitely spend the rest of the summer looking it up and learning the content as I'm sure it helps to some degree.

    2. I've already applied to universities for Chemistry. I was wondering what I could actually do to change the subject? I have a firm university but I'm planning to go through clearing anyway.

    Someone help thanks!

    Email your firm/insurance university. Sometimes they will easily shift you over to the other course. If they refuse, have a look at the clearing list. Universities have different rules on whether or not you need psychology A Level. Generally, as long as you have a science subject you should be fine. Do have a look at the website of your preferred university to see what their specific requirements are.
