    Basically once picked the wrong course as I applied to do theology and philosophy when I knew from the start I should have applied to philosophy and psychology. I have an unconditional for Theology and philosophy at my dream uni but I really don't think it's a good idea for my own happiness to do that course when I know I want to do psychology, is there anything I can do or is it too late?
    -just to add the uni is St Andrews so idk how many spaces they would have remaining

    Contact admissions and ask if you can be considered for the alternative course. They may or may not let you and if not, then consider applying the following year. Do not start a course you do not wish to do.

    You've probably contacted them already but if not, maybe best to not tell them it was a mistake!

    Just say that you had been really torn between the two and whilst you're absolutely positive now that St Andrews would be a wonderful university for you to attend (uni staff never tire of gratuitous love for their institution), you are also sure that in fact, philosophy and psychology is the right course for you.

    P.S. I'm a phil graduate - great subject choice!
