    Hi everyone this may sound weird, especially since i spent so much time picking Oxford over Cambridge. But I feel like I made a big mistake, I have quite a good range of academics and extracurriculars but I fell ill last week and underperformed in entrance examinations. Please tell me it's possible to switch? Cambridge entrance exams are at the end of the school year.

    You can't switch but you can withdraw your application and apply to Cambridge next autumn for 2017 entry :yes:

    Is not doing so well your only reason for wanting to switch? If so, since you can't switch at the moment, only withdraw, you might as well wait to see how this application goes. If it doesn't work out then you apply to Cambridge or Oxford again next autumn if you wish.

    You can only switch within 7 days of sending in your UCAS and before the 15th October deadline. You've missed both, so will have to suck it and see.
