    Ive read the sticky thing on changing courses and ringing unis and stuff, but id like a bit of help anyway.
    Ive applied for psychology, I have 4/5 offers and am still waiting to hear from Warwick.
    When I applied it was a hard decision to choose out of economics or psychology. Im starting to regret my decision a lot. As time has gone on at A2, im starting to feel id be better doing economics.

    However I dont suppose it's as easy as ringing up as asking to switch to economics, even if the grades are the same, since they are so different from each other.

    What are my options? If I have any that is...

    Well, no, it isn't. Apart from anything else, economics is hugely competitive, much more so than psychology. Check out the economics course forum on here for more information.

    Psychology and economics are two very different subjects. I think you would be wise to think through very carefully what "I'm starting to feel I'd be better doing economics" really means. If economics interests you more, fair enough. If you are thinking about so-called career prospects, I'd recommend sticking with what interests you most as you will do better. The degree classification you get matters more than the subject, for most things.

    Yeah I know what your saying. I know quite a bit about economics at uni because I was so close to picking it anyway. I just got put off for two reasons, one was my results I got back in august and two was that I dont do A-Level maths and a lot of unis required/preferred it for the Bsc that I wanted to do. I know there's some unis that dont require it though.
