    woah, that sucks. I've applied for the wrong version of my course in one of my choices, but i'm not gonna worry about it unless i get accepted.

    you should write a letter, i have a friend that changed thier course into a joint degree, all they did was ask in a letter after being on an open day- they also reduced the conditions of his offer.

    I don't think you should have a gap year if you have any doubts, because you'll just end up spending a year pining over when you go to uni. trust me. a gap year needs to be really planned and structured or you'll just end up bumming around/being bored the whole time, my best friend took an unexpected gap year and she's hating it. mines a bit more planned and i'm looking forward to traveling and have filled up my time in the meanwhile. I'd say wait 1-2 months and then decide- results would be wayyy too late, you need to organise accomodation finance and everything.

    If you know the course is wrong, then let them no sooner rather than later! It might be they reject you for this course but would have accepted you for the other one. At least make sure you are being considered for the right course and it is minimal effort to contact UCAS and the university in the scheme of things.

    and for the OP, do it now. By results day the chances are that places will have been taken depending on the competitiveness of the course so you have a much better chance of them saying yes if you do it now.

    yeah this did cross my mind, because my p/s is mainly geared towards business and no-where does it mention leadership. however, the courses are quite similar and i have a feeling i have applied to the less competitve of the two, so if they reject me i probably wouldn't have been good enough for the other course anyway. if it was the other way around, id have probably let them know straight away. I should get a response any day now besides..
