    Ok.
    I decided to take on 4 subjects at A level, as at the time, I really enjoyed them and thought that my increased ucas points would be a high.

    However, I have received an offer for 3 grades, xxx, including 2 subjects that I will keep. The grades are not subject specific but must include the 2 subjects.

    I really want to drop the 4th subject as the coursework is taking far too much of my time which would be better spent studying.

    Can I drop the 4th subject even though I have already sent off my UCAS form?

    Thanks very much.

    I usually "search" before but was unfortunate.

    I believe so. I'm not entirely sure and hopefully someone with experience can give a more accurate answer but phoning UCAS (with your ID) and asking them to remove/ammend your application could be the way.

    I expect you can drop it but you should email the universities to inform them which subject you are dropping because this may affect offers...
