Switching Grad Schemes



I missed out on the deadline for a scheme I REALLY wanted to do, however the company have just re-opened a different (similar) scheme.

Should I apply in the hope that I can switch onto the other scheme? Does this ever happen with grad schemes?

Should I apply anyway to showcase my skills/myself and hope that they identify potential for the other scheme (assuming i’m lucky enough to get anyway through the app process!!)

Advice much appreciated
