    I didn't do as well as I had hoped in my a levels for a number or reasons and therefore went though clearing. I have be offered a place at a university through clearing to study philosophy which I accepted as this is all I was offered (and I am interested in the subject) however my heart is really with Psychology.

    Has anyone on here successful changed uni course and what is the best way of going about it?
    Should I call them up/ or email them now
    Wait until I get there and try to speak to the psychology tutor face to face?

    Obviously due to my grades which are about 2 maybe 3 grades below what they wanted I feel as though they will straight away say no. However would I have a chance if someone dropped out?
    I have quite a lot of experience and can really show my passion.
    Also the module I picked for my philosophy course clashes with my philosophy lectures meaning I now have to pick a module that doesn't particularly interest me.

    I know for a fact that I will excel in study Psychology.

    I'm in the same situation and I rang up on results day and they didn't offer me a place. I would try ringing them now and if that doesn't work then sort it once you're there. I've been assured that once you've enrolled and registered officially at the Uni then they will do whatever it takes to make sure you're happy with your experience there.

    I'm trying not to worry about it too much because if I start on the course I've been accepted for then I can meet people through that and then when I move course I can make more friends
