    How drastic is the change?
    I am screwed

    I wanted to do law at SOAS....they are full but offered me english. I like english but want to do law..

    It seems that if i accept english...i can't change to law many people say its so hard to change. Also what i do if they don't let me change? Like you can't change in the second year can you?

    How long can I leave it to tell my insurance choice that I am not going there? I've been rejected by my firm but accepted by insurance, but I think I will try and get into my firm, perhaps on a different course. Seeing as this might take up to a week, is it OK for me to leave it that long before telling my insurance I won't be going?

    It sounds like you've done a good job of getting on with things. Worcester is lovely...and even plan C isn't a bad idea.
    Studying anything as a mature student is tough - you're cut off from most of the support that 17/18 year olds get automatically.

    Log into your SFE account and update your details.
    Where on SFE does it let you update your uni details? I can't find it

    It's at the discretion of the university. Some unis are lenient and will let you switch course IF it's not a popular one and thus has space. Some have common Year 1 modules so will let you transfer between them at any time before they start to specialise (for example I went from Economics to Economics & Finance at my uni because they have the same modules for Year 1, with Business Economics also an option). If it's a really popular course with substantially different course material you may struggle to do so.
    Basically english to law at SOAS will be almost impossible. That means I really cannot go to SOAS then.

    I don't know what I am going to do tbh*

    :jumphug:That's harsh! Are you okay with your insurance?
    I'm happy with my insurance but it's annoying that my firm are keeping me hanging! They've also offered me an alternate course that is absolutely not what I want to do and whose grades are much lower than I achieved. Whyyyyy?

    Nope because there isn't there isn't enough crossover between Law and English.

    If you want Law you need to be hunting for Law.

    I got my A-level results earlier and I was predicted ABBC but I managed to get A*AAB, with the A* in Spanish, the A in English Language, an A in Maths and a B in biology (I only got a C in the Unit 5 exam). I am so happy and I think I will be going to the University of Iceland (where I'm from) to do Biology. I think I am going to withdraw from my firm (University of Manchester) but I haven't decided yet.

    Congrats to everyone in the class of 2016! :badger::badger::badger::badger::badger:

    Hello, I received my AS results today. Sociology A, English Lit B, History B. Yet to my surprise I got a D in creative writing, despite my teacher continuously telling me I should be aiming for a B or A. Firstly I was wondering how badly this would impact me when I'm applying to uni... (looking to go to York, UCL, Birmingham or St Andrews). Secondly would it be worth getting remarked?
    Hope every one got the grades wanted !!!

    Thanks Jo.

    Hi,

    I don't think that you should be too worried. As long as you retake the module and do well in it, then many Universities may disregard the first attempt.

    Since you said that you had some personal problems, I will suggest that you get a medical certificate or something that you can show as evidence that you were not at your best for the first maths attempt.

    If you attach the extenuating circumstances to your academic record and mention it on your Personal Statement, I don't think that Universities will frown upon it, if you made up for it and did well on your second attempt.

    To get the best response, i suggest that you contact your potential universities with this and seek their opinion about it. So that you will have the most realistic opinion on your chances, especially at Oxbridge.

    Good luck.

    thank you, this was really helpful! I'll try what you suggested

    You're not the first person even in this thread to say about going to SOAS to do english but swap to Law.

    It's not going to happen - they're not stupid and they wont allow people in "through the back door". You can risk it but only do that if you're happy taking the original degree if they decline a request to swap....if you don't want to do english then don't take the place. There's quite a few places offering law
