    Hey people, thought I'd start by saying hi before I moved onto my problem!
    I've only just come across this site but it's a bit too late now as I've sent my UCAS form off already- and am severely regretting it
    When it was sent off I thought my application was fine but afterward I've discovered bits of it that might me detrimental to my chances of getting in.

    Anyways I'm predicted A in P.E, A in English Literature and A/B in History and I'm applying for a Sport and Exercise Science degree to the following:

    Loughborough- AAA
    Loughborough (Sport Science and Management)- AAB
    Birmingham- ABB
    Durham (Sport)- BBB
    Leeds- BBB
    Northumbria- BBC

    After taking a more detailed look at the courses I've realised that Leeds and Birmingham require a science to do the course (my stupid fault for not checking earlier) but does this mean they'll reject me on those grounds?
    I've applied to L'boro twice, thinking that if I don't get on the main course I'll hopefully get on the other, but I haven't included one reference to management in my PS.
    I really only want to go to L'boro but I need back-ups and this might limit my offers.
    Just would like to know what everyone thinks.
    Thanks

    Afraid so.

    I don't think applying to management as well willl jeopardise your chances of getting on the main course, so that's alright.

    Just relax, and good luck!

    Do they consider PE to be a science?

    As Psychology courses often consider A level Psychology as a science.

    No, PE is not classed as a science at Leeds and Birmingham- they do specify that you need either Physics, Biology or Chemistry.
    I only applied a few days ago so how do I go about changing my choice? That would be a great help.
    Thanks

    Look around and decide which you want to switch to first. Then ring UCAS and they'll be able to change it. You need to do this soon, you can't change anything after 14 days of your app being processed. I'd try to get it sorted by Wednesday personally.
    Do NOT attempt to change anything on Track yourself, as you may lose those choices altogether.

    EDIT: Also, I've seen a couple of people on here mention that you can switch to a different degree at the university within 14 days via UCAS. HOWEVER, I believe you can actually change the choice completely, so don't think you have to choose another course at the same universities.
