    Hi, for years i wanted to do engineering but then in like the past year I suddenly decided I wanted to do finance but I can feel myself slowly reverting back to wanted to do engineering so I'm going to do some 'soul searching' to think about which course I wat to do but i am just wondering if it would be possible to switch courses and potentially even universities this late on or at least on results day?

    Yeah you can change the course by going through clearing/adjustment. That allows you to apply to any course the uni offers through those systems

    Definitely. If you have the right grades for Engineering and have a conditional offer for Finance you can ask the university to switch your course. This all depends on if they have spaces though.

    If you want to do it, then you'll have a much better chance if you let the universities know now rather than waiting until results day when they have filled all their spaces. On the day, they will be really busy.
