    I already had an argument with my head of year with my parents present. Im not really sure what calling ucas would achieve as i wouldn't be able to change my options again would i?

    I've moved this to the Applications, Clearing and UCAS forum as it's more relevant to here.

    jfc, you need to talk to UCAS about this. we can't be of help apart from telling you to talk to UCAS who is the only one who has control over your application

    If you applied within the last 14 days, you could cancel your whole application, receive a refund, and then send a new UCAS application with the choices you want. You would need to choose a different password, different security answers, and ensure that these aren't saved by your browser or written anywhere your parents could find them.

    However, this wouldn't solve the problems of your parents expectations. You would either need to inform them that you have done this or try to lie - and neither option will end well. You've also got to consider student finance, as you would need your parents to submit their income if you wish to get the full loan, and they may not agree to this if they don't approve of the new course.

    So ultimately, it may be a better option for you to finish this year and achieve excellent A Level grades, and then think about uni afterwards. Then you could get a job and move out. You would need to be self-supporting for 3 years to be classed as an independent student in regards to student finance, or you could study part time.

    If you have any friends or family then they could try to talk to your parents, or your school may be able to intervene. But unless your parents agree, there may not be an easy answer.
