    I just realised I put down my nationality as Indian when in fact it is British, and one of the universities had asked me to prove this, however I emailed them back stating that it was a mistake. Now, I would like to know how can I change my nationality from Indian to British? Do I ring UCAS? Or email the other universities stating the mistake to avoid future problems.
    I did state that my residential status is in the UK and that my address is in the UK, so they would not think I am an international student?
    Thanks for all the help guys in advance

    you might have to cancel your application completely and reapply, but i'm not sure because the deadline was 6 days ago. your
    best bet would be to phone up ucas and explain your situation to them. I'm sure they can do something about it.
    best of luck

    I really really doubt they'd make them cancel it. Just ring up UCAS and see what they say, OP

    Usually when a mistake is made on a UCAS form like that you just need to email the individual universities that you've applied to and tell them about the mistake so that they can change it for their records...if your residential status and address are in the uk it should be easy enough for them to change

    you definitely won't need to do this :facepalm2:

    Just ring the universities and UCAS and inform them of the error and it should be simple and quick for them to change.
