    Has anyone in Kent had any experience of getting in through adjustment?????

    What course are you studying?

    I know someone that made it into chemistry through adjustment, however she got put onto a slightly different course as stage 1 was full.

    It depends how late you get in through adjustment, the later you apply obviously the less chance you have, because eventually the course will fill up.

    Ultimately no one can answer this until we know what you're studying, and even then, there is really no definitive answer anyone here can provide.

    Your best bet is emailing the head of department OR the head of admission for the school you're applying to, explaining your situation and ask questions like, how many applicants did you have last year compared to actual places on the course. Also ask what their policy is on not meeting offer requirements/how likely you are to be considered should you hypothetically not match your offer things like that.

    Use it as a small chance to sell yourself, explain how you changed your mind about your choices after discovering how perfect Kent was for you or something like that, don't make it cheesy and don't make it long, but as long as you sound sincere, it may help admissions be that bit more accommodating.

    To reiterate, it depends entirely on the school your applying to, and really no generalisations can be made across the different schools

    Good luck!
