    I have received 4 offers and have not replied to any of them yet. These 4 were all for engineering however over the last few weeks I've realized that maybe engineering isn't cut out for me. I now want to study business!! ahhhh

    I was wondering whether it is possible to cancel some of the choices and then substitute them for another university and course? Please let me know...

    If so, what about my personal statement as it is geared towards an engineering degree?

    Am I out of luck?!!

    It isn't possible to substitute the unis that have already replied, but depending on when you received your welcome letter it might be possible to substitute the last one (assuming you have five) - if it was within the last fortnight, it's possible.

    If you are within that time, contact the uni you're most interested in for business and ask them if you can send a new PS via e-mail. If they agree, click on the red code of the course you want to substitute and, at the bottom, click 'Substitute Choice' ... and follow instructions, then send your PS.

    If you didn't have five, you can just add a choice. Again, contact the uni beforehand to make sure they'll accept a new PS, then 'Add Choice' is at the bottom of the main choices screen.

    Now, as for your four (five if you can't substitute) other choices... If you're absolutely sure and you're happy with the unis, contact the unis and let them know you no longer wish to be considered for engineering but would like your application to be forwarded to the business people. Again, ask to submit a new PS directly to them before arranging this.
