    Hi.

    I originally applied for 5 courses but have since changed my mind after being rejected from my top 2.

    As for a change I intend to study a similar course with lower requirements at my desired university although I didn't originally apply for this.

    I read on UCAS that you can cancel an application for a course as long as you haven't yet had a response. Is this right?

    So would I be able to cancel my application to a university who haven't yet given me a reply and replace with it another university?

    Thanks.

    You can only substitute a choice if it is within 14 days of making your initial application. If it is longer than this you can cancel a choice but will not be able to choose another.

    At this new course is at the same university you can contact them and ask them if they will reconsider you for the new course. However, they do not have to do this and may be unwilling to if they have already rejected you. You will also not be able to change your UCAS form so they will still be able to see your original personal statement that relates to the old course. You can ask them if they will consider a new personal statement if you send them one by e-mail but they do not have to do this either.
