    If you are wanting to change course you can email to uni asking to be considered by a different department and they may ask you to submit another personal statement - my friend did this last year. I would ring UCAS and ask first though
    Do you know what university your friend did this for? at the moment I'm applying for a mix of joint subjects and I really just want to do history now :/

    Can you change the personal statement? I don't think you can? I'd only do it if I could change that too
    I don't believe you can change your PS but UCAS lets you substitute one of your options in a 2 week period from the date your application was processed in Track, but only one choice.

    Otherwise if it's the course you want to change you can always email the universities and ask to change which course you're considered for but keep your universities.

    I want to keep the universities but just change course but if I can't change the personal statement I'll probably end up being even less likely to get in since I'll just be applying for one subject but in my ps I'm talking about 3 so will keep everything as is if I can't make any changes to it

    Well if you've discussed that subject already in your personal statement then they will know you have an interest in it - it wouldn't be completely changing to a different subject altogether. They might just ask you to send them another personal statement via email.

    Just got an offer from York for AAA or A*AB for English, with the other condition being getting an A in English. Was worried I wouldn't get an offer from them, so it's a relief that I have. York's most likely to be my firm choice when I get to that stage, but I suppose it depends on how much I like UEA when I go there for the Open Day on the 22nd.

    Trinity, wbu? The Birmingham lecturers were just a bit uninspiring to me - they didn't even know the standard offer! How unprepared can you be?
