    So that's basically my problem. I already completed my application and I made my 5 choices already. The thing is that there is another university I would like to go now, Queen mary university. Is there a way for me to apply to this university outside of ucas? Is there any solution can I substitue a choice? My application was sent the 14th of January and today is 31 of march.
    Thank you.

    Ring UCAS and ask them. Perhaps if you decline all your choices you might be able to apply to Queen Mary throguh UCAS Extra?

    Check and see if your course is in UCAS extra

    No, you can't apply outside of ucas, at least not for an undergraduate course.


    What you can do (this is HIGH RISK) is withdraw from all your choices, reject all offers and then try to apply to them through UCAS Extra
    You apply one course at a time, you won't have an insurance, success is far from guaranteed.

    Be sure to check if your favourite course has places left though (it has a little x next to the course on the ucas course search).
    Also, bearing in mind how competitive applications are, you've got to be absolutely certain that this is what you want.

    Ask if they accept direct applications, outside of UCAS. Some unis still do this, though im not sure if QM is one of them.

    Ring Queen Mary and enquire as to whether there are places left (UCAS is not always entirely up to date) and whether they would consider you in terms of your A Levels etc. Do that before you start rejecting choices, etc.

    I did something very very similar to this last year. Queen Mary considered my application outside of UCAS, and then they offered me something through Extra, even though they don't offer Law through Extra.
    So it is possible, but in my circumstances they were one of my original 5 but I firmed another university instead.
    If I were you, I'd ring up Queen Mary BEFORE you reject your choices and ask them if they will consider your application through Extra.
