    Hi everyone, I recently applied to study BSc theoretical physics & applied maths at Birmingham on UCAS extra, but unfortunately I've just realized I can't attend this course next year and hence really need to cancel it to apply to another choice (Warwick Maths & Physics) by the UCAS extra deadline tomorrow. From past experience with Edinburgh I know it can take a bit long for unis to process unsuccessful requests and I'm really worried they won't respond on time and I'll end up not being able to add a choice by Monday. Is there anything I can do in this situation to make sure my Birmingham application gets cancelled on time? I've contacted both Birmingham and UCAS by email/twitter/facebook and am hoping to phone them both tomorrow, but I'm still a bit worried due to how close the deadline is! Basically what should I do at the moment, is there a way of cancelling extra choices on your own?

    Thanks so much for your help!
    There's not much you can do really, it's not the end of the road if it doesnt cancel in time as then you'd be able to use clearing.

    Ucas should be able to cancel it, but you'll need to phone them first thing in the morning
