    I've got an interview coming up at Oxford brookes in a few weeks. I really want to change my course but I still want to go to OB too.

    If I call and ask to change course will that have a negative impact on my application?

    Also would I need to have a new personal statement ready?

    What course do you have an interview for and what do you want to swap to ?

    Provided the courses are kinda similar and there isn't much too much of a difference between them in terms of entry requirements I couldn't imagine there being much of an issue.

    I would suggest sending an email as well so you can get your point across in as much detail as possible.

    Just had a look at both courses entry requirements and they want the same A level grades (BBC), where as Biology only wants DMM compared to Adult nursing's DDM at BTEC. Are you doing A levels or a BTEC ?
    If your currently studying science based subjects then I personally can't see there being an issue changing your application from adult nursing to biology.
    Let me know how it goes when you call them up

    Thanks
    Will I need to send a revised personal statement explaining why I decided to change to biology or would it be enough to explain over the phone?

    Yeah I reckon you should send a revised personal statement explaining it all in an email and ring them up also. Briefly tell them over the phone why you want to etc. and then let them know you have gone into greater detail in an email you have sent them.
    It should really help your case as it shows you have put a lot of thought and effort into it, and that it's what you really want to do.
    Just don't change your mind again afterwards as they may get a little grouchy
