Hey I’m applying to study psychology at university; I've sent of my Ucas application form to my referee and now am having second thoughts and would like to study a science degree at university. Howe ever as I would like to keep my options open is it possible to apply to 2 different courses at different universities. And would my referee be able to send my ucas application form back to me so I can amend it?

If they haven't yet checked it then you can still edit it, you can apply to more than one type of course, but it may be hard to get your statement to work for the two subjects. However, people have been given offers for subjects unrelated to their ps.
If you can't access your application just ask your referee to send it back.

Why don't you apply to do a natural sciences degree at some unis as well as applying to do psychology at other unis? I know that durham offers a natural sciences degree. At Durham at least, psychology is one of the options within the course so your personal statement would be perfetly fine if solely geared towards psychology. However, you would have the option to take biology/ chemistry/ maths/ etc. modules once you get there (providing you have the right a levels.) Check out 'natural sciences' on ucas course search and have a look! And yes, you would need to get your referee to send your ucas thing back to you to change the courses section. You shouldn't need to change much, if anything, on you p.s. though!
Hope this helped!

Once you're studying at University you can change your course (or even switch to another university). Although as I understand it, the mechanisms are quite laborious.
Once you get to choose your options perhaps you could pay more attention to the "arts" side of Psychology as opposed to the science? You could even take modules from different courses.
As ali123 mentioned, you could apply for natural sciences. Cambrdige as well as Durham offer this degree (although I don't know who else does).
