After you've sent your UCAS application to be referenced, can you still change the personal statement, as I have since found new courses I would like to apply for as backup but need to change my personal statement as my original personal statement is aimed at one particular course.

I am not sure what is involved in the UCAS process of changing courses, if indeed it is possible in the way that you describe.

But in my opinion, if someone has used a personal statement as a basis to write a reference, it is not ethical to then change the personal statement without at least informing the individual first and potentially seeking a revised reference if necessary.

So I've not paid and sent my application yet, so I can still access my personal statement
I'm just wondering if my referee would have to change his reference because I altered my personal statement.
