I said to my uni on UCAS that I had sickle cell anaemia but I stupidly don't have that and have beta thalassemia major. I don't know if that will make them reject me or not. What should I do? 😭

But could they reject me for it?

Will they reject me? I didn't know myself.

It would be extremely unfair for them to reject you. I wouldn't expect them to reject you.

I don't think so. Is your offer reduced because of your medical condition?

No. They just asked for any health conditions on UCAS. And I always thought I had sickle cell anemia as my doctor mentioned it a few times but today my mum said I don't have it and I have beta thalassemia

In that case, you should have no problems. If you genuinely believe that you had this condition, it's fine. Contact UCAS and let them know at some point next week.

Bear in mind they'd be very busy from this A Level exam cancellation business!

Okay I've applied for nursing so I thought this would be a problem but I have separate health check forums to fill out for my nursing course.

Yes, you'll need to let Uni know. But it shouldn't affect the offer.

They just need to know if they need to prepare for any support/accessibility for potential students and can reach out to you early on if you get a place with them. It isn't an issue at all, once you're at uni you can speak to them more in detail if it'll impact your study

Contact UCAS and ask to request a change to your application. I had to update some details and they just sent a form and requested proof of ID. It's not the end of the world you aren't going to be rejected for a mistake unless you've deliberately lied on your application. Give them a ring and relax, hope you get the offers you want!

No, it was a simple mistake when filling in your application. Think about it logically why would they reject you? It's not like you have lied about your grades.
When you attend a university they have a duty of care towards you so UCAS ask you for any medical conditions so the university knows who may require extra support should you require it etc.

I've found this website that may help: https://universitycompare.com/advice...s-application/

I would give UCAS a call or contact them on social media to request a change to your personal details. Please don't worry, I feel you're getting concerned about something that won't happen.
