    So I applied to 5 universities for psychology and got reduced offers from all of them, but I realised that I no longer want to do psychology but I want to do law. Will KCL or UCL allow me to apply through extra, baring in mind how competitive the course and the universities are? Thanks!

    It's extremely unlikely that UCL or KCL law will be in UCAS Extra. Jumping from psychology to law so suddenly raises a few warning flags IMO, how do you know that you want to study law? It might be worth taking a gap year and using the time to think seriously about what it is you actually enjoy.

    I always knew I wanted to but my parents didn't want me to. I've decided to ignore what they want and do what I actually want to do and not something that I didn't want to do.

    Ask your current five choices if they can reconsider you for their law degrees.

    How would you suggest doing that? Ringing of emailing?
