    If it is within 2 weeks of submitting your application then yes it's possible you can switch your choices; if not then it is too late. (And in any case since it's after the January deadline; Manchester wouldn't guarantee equal consideration anyways because the application would be flagged as late)

    Would Manchester be your first choice ?

    When I applied I didn't realise York would interview and Thought I would get an offer based in A level results so I put a range of university entry requirements down (I didn't see the point in putting 2 AAA uni's down) so in a way yes if I don't pass York interview Manchester would be my 1st choice but it's outside the 2 week time frame 😕

    What course are you applying to and do you already have A2 results or would you receive a conditional offer? Honestly wouldn't worry too much about the interviews; most of them are just to ascertain your passion for the course you are applying to

    Applying for law and the interview is to ascertain if you are suited to problem based learning as it's the only uni that teaches law that way. I really want York but feel I need a better back up plan than I have. I have an A in critical thinking am predicted 3 As at A level and hopefully an A in my EPQ but have hedged my bets as you can't really predict how well you are going to do on the day 🙄 Should I contact Manchester? Massively appreciate your help by the way 😊

    Definitely hard to ascertain how you'll do on results day; My guess is your other choices are AAB-ABB? I wouldn't contact Manchester at this point because it's too late; however if York goes awry (hope it won't) and you perform above your conditional offer on results day, I'm sure Manchester would be open for you to apply through adjustment. No problem that's what we are here for.
