    hi soz if ive posted threads similar to this but ive applied for a course, got a conditional offer but want to do a different course at the same uni. however on my personal statement ive wrote it as though im dedicated to sport and becoming a P.E teacher but ive neva really been sure and decided id rather do psychology as it leads to a better job. im worried that if i ask to change they will say no and i'll lose my offer due to lack of interest.
    also would they ring my college and want to speak to the teacher

    No they cannot take away your offer but I would I'd look up the required grades for psychology, make sure you get them and then there will be a chance for you to change maybe call them up when youve got your results, alternatively you will most likely be able to switch course within the first two weeks of starting at the uni, you will need to go through some sort of procedure, do a google on it or look it up in the student union part of the uni website.

    i was in the same situation as u.. i applied for dentistry but then i changed my mind and so wanted to do pharmacy so i range the college and asked if i could forward my application to the pharmacy department and it came out successful.. .. but u have to consider the fact that psycology is quite competitive.. but if ur predicted grades match the required grade for Psychology then i would just ring up the uni and talk to them about it (the Psychology department) and see what they think and what are ur chances of getting in b4 applying!!
