    Is this possible for me to do (obviosuly not now, but could I have done this):

    Applied to Oxbridge before 15th October

    Applied to other Unis after the 15th by using the 'Add Choice' button on the TRACK option?

    It seems UCL are rejecting all those who they think applied for Economics at Oxbridge - doing what I suggested would REALLY have helped get around that problem

    If your question is "Can I apply to Oxbridge before 15th October and add other choices later?", then yes, you can. You would have to pay the remaining fee for apllications to more than one uni though.

    Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish.
    1) They would give offers to these students anyway, as not all of them will receive offers from Oxbridge and thus UCL would be depriving themselves of good candidates. This is based on the assumption that candidates applying to Oxbridge will be "good candidates" - this is not necessarily true.
    2) Plenty of non-Oxbridge candidates apply before October 15th, so UCL could be rejecting people based on a false assumption.
    3) The fact that they think that they have been rejected for applying to Oxbridge proves that they are intrinsically stupid, which is the true reason for their UCL rejection.

    But if there is even a slight chance that what I said might be true, it makes sense to do what I said; it just costs a little more. Whats the disadvantage in doing what I suggested?

    It does not cost more, you have to pay the remaining 10 pounds when you add more choices (because you only need to pay 5 when you apply to only one university, at lest that's what it was like 2 years ago). There's no disadvantage in doing what you suggested, but you should get off your high horse blaming conspiracy theories for the fact you didn't get into UCL. Maybe they had loads of candidates that were better than you?

    And yet you're worrying that you might be rejected because you have applied to Oxbridge? Some people are really paranoid these days .
