    So, I recently confirmed my firm and insurance choices with UCAS (about two weeks ago).

    However, personal things have made me realise that, actually, studying the course I picked at the place I picked would be living hell and I just do not want to do it.

    I'm hoping to go through UCAS extra to apply for a different course at a different place so that I can still attend university in September, but I know (I think?) to do this I need to reject both of my choices, even though I've already confirmed them.

    So... how do I do this?

    Oh - seems to have slipped my mind on this. I'll take out my post as it is incorrect.

    It's possible to enter Extra....but not for the applicant to withdraw their choices. The action needs to be done by the universities concerned or UCAS depending on the time period..

    If the OP is within 2 weeks of applying then UCAS can make the switch. Outside that time period it's a case of approaching the universities directly to get placed into Extra.

    OK, so I was right to say contact Ucas this morning, although I don't know how long it was since OP did it - 'about two weeks ago' isn't quite precise enough, is it? I thought I'd lost the plot!

    It's close enough to make a phone call worthwhile :yes:

    If nothing else they'd be able to clarify if the OP is outside that time what they need to do next.

    Yes. I just had a crisis of confidence there!
