    I'm an offer holder for Philosophy at St. Catherine's, but I think I'm starting to change my mind about what I want to study. Though I really enjoy my subject, I've recently been regretting that I did not apply for HSPS, but instead chose Philosophy.

    What would you recommend that I do in my situation, and does anyone know where I can find information in more depth on the topic?

    I hear that HSPS is a really popular course, so I don't know if it might look like I've just applied to Philosophy with the intention of switching, because it has less stringent entry criteria. I think it could be in my favour that I have high grades for a Philosophy applicant (95%+), in okay subjects. I don't know whether they will care though?

    If anyone has information about how this stuff work, or advice on what to do and who to ask, I'd be grateful. I'm reluctant to message my potential DoS because I don't want them to hate me, or think that I'm wasting their time.

    Thank-you for your help
