    I've been applying for a bunch of Liberal Arts courses and received an unconditional from RHUL and I'm still waiting to hear back from Nottingham. Most likely, I will be rejected as I didn't make one of the subject requirements. However, there is another course that I'm interested in at Nottingham (BA European Studies), where I made all the requirements. The problem is my personal statement on UCAS was only about Liberal Arts courses, and plus, the deadline has passed. But could I ring up or on track add the course despite the fact that it's not what my statement is about? Or would it be rejected as it is past January 15th?

    Ring them and ask if there are spots available. If there are and you are really keen then you may have to reject your existing offers and use UCAS Extra where you can apply to one more uni/ course. You can then send them a new ps focused on that course.
