    I'm waiting for my offers to come through, and regardless of what offers I get, I am turning them down and using UCAS Extra to apply to a different course altogether. I am wondering, does anyone know if, when using UCAS Extra, you're given a chance to alter your personal statement? The course I want to apply through Extra is not the focus in my current personal statement- hence why I'd like to alter it.

    Replies quickly welcomed!! Thanks xx

    You want to drop all of your offers in the most competitive year for university applications and change your course? Wow, I admire you.

    No, but you can offer to send them an updated PS outside of UCAS

    1. You aren't aware of the universities I have and want to apply to, so please be respectful at least

    You cant change your ps. You might as well just withdraw your ucas profile and make a new one, so you can make a new ps and reference directed at this new course you want to apply for, and either apply late (I applied a few weeks after the closing date and still got accepted, so dont assume they reject late applications!) or wait for extra/clearing.

    you can only have one ucas application with 5 choices each cycle. If you then want more, you need to use Extra or Clearing, not make a new application.

    That's right; you can only apply per academic year.

    Ah i see.... oh well, best bet then is to ring up uni's you're interested in nearer the time and see if they would be okay with you emailing them a different ps.

    I was, I wouldn't have the nerve to drop-out and reconsider at this point. I admire that you are driven enough to do this
