Can I swap my first choice and my insurance choice?


The title is self-explanatory. I suddenly decided I prefer to go to my insurance choice instead of my first choice. How can I change it? And am I on time to do so? Do I need to contact the universities directly or just on UCAS?

Hi Pablo,

This is a tricky one - you must confirm with the universities that both are willing to be switched (they don't have to agree to this). Then the arrangement would need to be formalised by UCAS.

Good luck!
