    So I never really knew what kind of thing i wanted to apply for but i eventually settled on nutrition. Now that i'm much further into my second year of college and having looked more into the career prospects of nutrition i really don't think i made the right decision. I already have 4 offers for it but i now think that i would be much more suited to do a maths and biology degree. One of the unis i applied to does offer this course so do you think it would be possible to ask them if i can change? and how likely do you think i would be to succeed? If i can't do you think i should just go ahead with nutrition or take a year out and apply next year? I would be really nervous about applying independently without the help of my college and i'd also be worried that i would be behind other people if i hadn't had say a maths lesson in over a year.

    You can ask the uni to swap to the new course, and see what they say.

    It would be very expensive to take a year of a degree you aren't interested in. You would be paying £9000 in tuition fees and around £2000+ in accommodation. It would be much more sensible to decide in advance whether you want to do nuitrition or would be happier with a different course.

    Applying on your own is not that scary. If you can apply this year, you can apply next year too. It's the same form with the same questions and the same deadlines.

    I am in the middle of my gap year now and after not applying at all last year, I applied through UCAS this year without having any experience of filling out my application.

    I found it very straight forward and just rang my head of sixth form to ask if she would do my reference. It was a quick process and have since received 3 out of my 4 offers. I also found it better to apply during a gap year as you already have your grades and will either be offered an unconditional or rejection.

    Hope this helps and good luck with whichever decision you make!
