    So I've applied to study undergraduate Primary Education at 5 universities this year, and I've just noticed that on my fifth choice I'd accidentally selected that I'd wanted to study the "Primary Education x100" course at Dundee university - the POSTGRADUATE course, when I should've inputted "Education x120". I've emailed the university admissions to see what can be done.

    I don't know how I've managed to do it, and I feel like an absolute tit!

    What are my chances of this getting sorted out?

    When did you apply?

    If you're within 14 days of your welcome email from UCAS then you can substitute that choice.

    Outside that Dundee can make the change for you to another of their degrees without any problems.

    Sent my application off on the 11th, and I've tried to substitute my choice on UCAS but it says that I can't change my course to one from the same university.

    I've sent them an email so fingers crossed!!

    If you can't make the change on Track (or the university don't get back promptly) then ring up UCAS today or tomorrow and they'll be able to substitute it for you (and so the application date will still be before the deadline).

    Emailed by Dundee today, they've changed the course for me and have given me an interview place. Thanks for your assistance PQ!
