    My son has just informed me that he has opted for the wrong course at Uni. He has had 2 unsuccessfuls and 1 request for interview. How do we change his choice of course? Thank you to anyone who responds.

    Uhm, call UCAS? They can give more information... You might have to pay again to replace the options, I think it's £10 per choice you want to change/add.

    Thanks for your help. Is this a common occurance then?
    Only he's been told he'll not be able to change, he's stuck with his choice

    While I wouldn't say it's common, it's certainly not unheard of.

    He may have to make another UCAS application, and you would need to pay for that, but that's only like £17 if I recall correctly. Simply phone UCAS and they should be able to help you; it's not too late to change, and if he's 100% sure that he's made the wrong choices, he should fix it as soon as possible.

    He is definitely not stuck - see this article.
