    i rang UCAS earlier on today and informed them that i had might a slight error on my UCAS form. they told me that it wouldn't have no implications and could contact the universities if i wish to do so

    should i email the university itself or email the admissions tutor of the course?

    thanks in advance

    :/ you have 14 days to change it from the day you have sent it BUT as track is not available either email UCAS or wait until tracks back online and withdraw your application and make the necessary changes , you would have to get your college to re-send it again though

    i'll have to wait untill track is up and running then - what happens if the universities are already processing my application and i withdraw it?

    would you email the admissions tutor or the university itself?

    Personally I would ring the universities up. E-mails can take awhile to be replied to whereas if you're actually speaking to someone there and then, things are more likely to be resolved at a quicker pace.

    Don't withdraw an application over that.

    E-mail the unis to inform them of the error.

    No, it's not - withdraw it and that it, over for this cycle. He'd need to reapply next year.

    You can withdraw your application at any time. However, OP still wants to go to university and, if he withdraws it, he cannot enter another application.

    No - people make mistakes like this all the time.

    I'd just email the admissions department of each university, I did that for a much more serious error and they were very good about it.
