    Ok, so i have posted about this before, but i am still unsure so would like a definitive response

    I have received an offer of AAB from my first choice uni.

    I am now in year 14 and got a D in maths last year, this year i am predicted a B.

    I am also predicted AAB in three other subjects, making it AABB.

    The university i want to go to stated they want AAB in subjects excluding General studies.

    Now i don't really want to do Maths, so is it possible for me to just leave it at a D and focus on the other three, or do i still have to do it?

    Thanks :p:

    You can leave the maths and focus on the other three - if you think it more likely you will get the grades, it's probably a good idea. Unless in the offer letter on UCAS the conditions include an a level in maths at a grade higher than D...

    If you put on your UCAS form that you are going to do Maths at A2, and you have decided to drop it, I think that you have to tell them. If you still did the exam though (and did not so well seeing as you concentrated on the other 3), and got AAB in your other 3 subjects, that would be fine since they did not specify what the AAB grades must be in (as long as one of your 4 isn't general studies).

    Maybe you should read his post more carefully. He did already do A level maths last year and got D. His prediction is for his resitting exam I believe.

    @ OP: yes, you can just leave your Maths as a D and make sure you will get AAB at the other three. If the offer requires AAB, you will be more than enough to get in with your AABD

    If you have declared the maths re-sit, and I assume that you must have, you will have to notify the universities and UCAS of your change of mind. I recommend you speak to them first to ascertain that they are happy with this before finally deciding to drop it; they have the right to change or rescind your offer if the facts of your application change.

    Notify the universities just to make sure but it should be alright I think
