    Hi,
    So I applied for Economics and Politics at Manchester, Leeds, LSE, Liverpool and Birmingham. However, after talking to a lecturer at Manchester among other reasons such as the course content, respectability and appropriateness of my A-Levels I want to switch to just Economics.

    I've already received offers from Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool. What should I do?

    just econ and all of your choice? if you want to stick to the same universities then contact them all and ask if they are willing to consider you for just economics.

    Probably for all apart from Liverpool as my insurance! Yeah, I 100% want to stick with the same unis! Do you think they will be open to the idea of me changing? Will I have to do anything extra for it?

    You can email them and they'll tell you whether you can change or not. I doubt they'll say no though since both courses are similar.

    Depends if there's places on the course, call admissions up at each of the universities and ask if they'll consider it.

    they should be in the same school, if you can't find contact details for them then try central admissions instead.
