    Hello everyone,
    This is my first post on thestudentroom and I am here to ask you fellow people for some advice. I would like to know if it is possible to change courses before I actually go to university. I have already received and accepted an offer(firm choice) for Chemistry at the University of Birmingham (ABB). However If possible I would like to change courses to Computing (Computer Science). Currently I am studying Maths, Chemistry and Computer Science.

    The reason I want to change courses is not because I dislike chemistry, in fact I find it very interesting(that's why I applied to it). But over time (after I submitted the UCAS application) as I was doing my coursework, I found Computer Science a lot more interesting and enjoyable. It's not the end of the world for me if I don't get to change courses but I honestly would really love to study computer science at university instead of chemistry.

    I would greatly appreciate it if you guys and girls can please help me out,
    Thanks

    CompSci has a higher typical offer at Birmingham (AAA). Are you likely to achieve that? If so you can ask Birmingham if they would consider you for CompSci. They may say no...

    Contact details are on their pages:
    http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/undergra...ryRequirements

    Probably best to ring them asap... Take a note of the name of whoever you speak to and what they say, then follow up the conversation with an email so you have it in writing.
