    Hello all, (first post)

    I chose my A-Level subjects wanting to apply for Japanese and Business Studies (or a variant there upon). However, sometime during Year 12 (and even I can't work out when) I became incredibly interested in Physics, especially Astrophysics. As a result, I dropped History for Maths half way through Yr12, and have dropped Economics at the end of it to take up Further Maths this year.

    However, in the last few weeks I have been heavily regretting not sticking with Japanese (something with which I am still very much interested) and am seriously considering changing. As UCAS extended the deadline by a week (until this coming Friday) I took this almost as a sign; what I want to know, is should I try to rush an application from scratch this week, or perhaps see if I can get a place through Clearing? (I've been quite ambitious with my Uni. choices for Physics, so might have needed to do so anyway if offers fail to come in)

    Any advice at all would be appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    You can only do one application per cycle.
    Depending on how long ago you sent your application determines if you can change information (you have 14 days from the date of your welcome letter)

    If I were you, I'd withdraw from this cycle and apply next year.

    I, via my school's UCAS coordinator found they do say (along the lines of) "If you wish to withdraw that is fine, but desiring to re-enter in exceptional circumstances requires contacting us." I contacted them, but got a nonsensical answer, so gave up with that. As a result I indeed plan to withdraw and apply again. Turns out my school is partnered with one in Japan, so may have some luck with a gap year...

    Thanks for the response, advice appreciated ^_^
