    Under Cambridge,
    There is a variety of college choices.
    My agent chose the wrong college for me.
    It's stated under my UCAS Application College X when I wanted College Y.

    Under the Cambridge Online SAQ it is also written College X, not the college I wanted.
    How can I change this detail?
    If I were to be able to get UCAS to change it,
    will they re-send my application to my wanted college?
    What about the detail in the online SAQ?

    Sack your agent and use the money you were paying him/her to bribe the admissions tutor at "College Y".

    Seems like the agent was a great investment.

    If you're not intelligent enough to decipher the child-like simplicity of the UCAS site without paying an agent, I wouldn't worry about which college you applied to, tbh.

    Wait you're applying to Cambridge even though you couldn't even fill out a simple form by yourself ?

    Actually sack that, hiring an agent is a great idea but since the one you paid can't do the job properly I'd be happy to take over for him/her XD

    Why would you hire someone to do that for you...
    and most importantly, why did you not check + double check + triple check before you send it? O_O

    Call up Admissions asap and explain what has happened. If you're lucky your preferred college might give you an interview slot. If not, just be grateful for an interview at any college.

    Call up UCAS asap, explain about the mistake, and ask them whether it can still be changed. If the answer is yes, get in touch with the Cambridge admissions office and ask them to correct the information on the SAQ.

    lol nope. I didn't hire an agent.
    It was a consultation centre, and they offerred to help.
    Anyway I didn't dish out a single cent.
    And up to the second before she typed the wrong college,
    she was of much help.

    Anyway, I'd appreciate it if you guys would rather think of ways to help me,
    rather than dig the other side of your brain for a way to flame me down.

    I'm foreign to UK, so I'm trying to look for a way to contact / correct this information online.
    But if there's no other way, I will call them. Thanks.

    The college hasn't actually received your application yet, though. It's still with the Cambridge admissions office, so there's still a slim chance that you'll be able to change your college choice. You'd need to get this sorted out quickly, though, which is why it would be better to resolve this on the phone and not via email, which is bound to take a lot longer to process.
