    (i think this is the right section for this post to be)

    anyway, oh dear, i sent my application sometime in december, had 3 conditionals back so far (hurrah) but i've only just noticed a mistake on my application, it says that one of my qualifications is 'english lit' when it should say 'english lang', the individual modules are right, but not that main subject.

    i only noticed this cos one uni replied saying i need a 'BC in sociology and english lit, any order' or something like that. i can't see it being a major problem which would change the decisions of the uni's, as i've applied to do psychology not lit or anything ha.

    so yea, i'm not really sure what to do, i can't find anything on the UCAS site that suggests what to do in this sort of problem what can i dooo?

    thank you

    Contact your universities and inform them that you are in fact taking different subjects to the ones you've said you're doing.... ensure you have all of the correct information. You will also need to change it on your UCAS form so that the correct results are sent to the universities in the summer. Even though you've not applied for a course which requires these subjects they might still change your offer grades etc as a concequence of the fact you're actually doing different subjects.
