I have heard it is possible to switch from courses that are similar like from geography with economics to just geography but would it be possible to switch from geography with economics to politics with economics before you start the three years?

Usually changing courses is fine within the first six weeks, talk to your personal tutor asap about it

Yeah
Sometimes possible but definitely not assured. I'd ask in advance. I'd also maybe consider deciding on the specific degree before applying.

Me too, what's your predicted grades/subjects, If you don't mind me asking?

Also, have you noticed this really weird fluctuation in their offer rate - last year it was 128 applicants to 74 offers, but this year it's 161 applicants but just 67 offers...?

3A*s in maths biology and geography, I have an offer for Econ and geog from ucl.

Tbh I haven't really looked at the rates too much as it won't change anything but I guess it is interesting!
What are your grades/subjects?
