    I'm taking an AEA this summer, but I haven't told UCAS or my chosen universities that I'm taking it, as when I applied I wasn't and only decided to take it at the end of April. Should I tell them, or just wait until results day - they wouldn't change my offer to include it would they?

    The thing is Warwick have been known to ask for them. But I doubt they'd ask for one in Economics when i'm going to be studying a politics degree. I just want to make sure.

    well sorry to be really unhelpful but dont know anythign for sure - but I would guess that it's HIGHLY unlikely esp in your case as

    No. They won't change your offer.

    The only way in which it could affect your University entry is if you don't meet your offer, and get a Merit/Distinction in the AEA. This could be used as a deciding factor as to whether they let you in or not!
    Good luck.

    But I've heard that they could possibly revoke the offer as I haven't told them all my examinations. I'm probably just panicking

    I would just tell the uni's and UCAS that you are doing an AEA, so there won't be any confusion during results day.

    I think the only reason they would withdraw an offer is if you said you were doing more qualifications than you actually were, eg if you said you were doing 4 A2s and then dropped one without telling them. I can't see why they'd have a problem with you doing something extra, but you could always phone or email an admissions tutor if you're really worried. As someone has already mentioned, it could also be used as a bargaining tool on results day if you narrowly miss the grades.

    Don't worry Nellz, it's only an AEA and therefore not the same as a proper A level subject. I wouldn't even bother telling you're university, to be honest - there won't be any confusion over it at all, they'll just see an AEA result alongside your A-level grades. No probs whatsoever.

    why would there be confusion? :rolleyes: the AEA wasn't part of the offer, i hardly think it would matter.

    & can't think they would revoke an offer for you choosing to do more exams! :p:

    given the failure rate is ~50%, i wouldn't bother mentioning it, unless you pass & slip up on your offer...

    Thanks everyone. I guess I'm just a wee bit paranoid about not getting into uni

    I think I won't tell them then as I'm likely to fail anyway, but I just wanted to check with people first.
