    I've applied to five universities and have received an offer from University of Leicester of ABB for Economics BA. Course L100.
    This is a mistake! I had meant to apply for Economics Bsc Course L102 :shock:
    I don't know what to do!!
    How can I change the course from BA to Bsc??
    p.s. the error was mine. :erm:
    [I usually wouldn't mind, only I want to do a postgraduate Masters in Economics, and Bsc is the better option for it.]

    UCAS can't do it - you would need to call the uni and ask if you can transfer your offer.

    Either phone up UCAS or phone Leicester and see if they'll let you switch course.

    I wouldnt ring UCAS up just yet. Ring Leicester up and explain. It shouldnt be a problem providing they are the same entry requirements (which might be doubtful since its a BA to BSc but still check). They should accept it and then i suppose they contact UCAS or you do, but Leicester will tell you what to do

    i dont think UCAS can change it now that the university has already given you an offer, i belive there is something like a week or two after you send your form to contact UCAS to make changes, after that you have to contact the university,think though, could be wrong. At any rate just contact the university its an easy enough mistake to do, and if they have given you an offer already i am sure they wont mind switching your course

    Although I think it'd sound better to not use the word mistake and just ask if you can change. ^^

    When i went to the Liecester open day, their admissions tutor told me face-to-face that if you get an offer to study any course in the Economics department you can always change it. So don't sweat it.

    Not a big deal either way. I just thought that if the op just asked to change it might appear if she was being tactical: "getting into the low grade course and then see if you can upgrade".
