    Hey guys,

    On my application, I put down 4 A-level subjects:

    Arabic (predicted grade=A)
    English Lit (predicted grade=B)
    French (predicted=A)
    History (predicted=C)

    However, due to scheduling/time issues, my school and I decided to drop Y13 English, leaving me with 3.5 A-levels. Thing is, I got a (conditional) offer from Kent requiring me to meet:

    This offer is subject to you obtaining
    A minimum of 320 UCAS Tariff points
    including

    GCE A level
    Grades AB

    .....question is, what do I do now? Any help appreciated.

    Simple: follow the UCAS rules and notify both UCAS and the universities of the changes to your application. You have no choice over this.

    I've sent emails to the universities I'm applying to, but how do I contact UCAS? They seem to have no protocol for such situations.

    Haven't you looked at the UCAS website? The very first link on it (top of home page) is labelled Contact us.

    I've looked, but there doesn't seem to be an email I can actually write to. In here, it clearly says http://ucas.com/students/offers/makingchanges that I must write to them, yet they provide no relevant contact.

    Try ringing them, if you do actually need it in writing, you can get an email address over the phone.

    Phone them, but don't use the expensive 0871 number. Use 0330 333 0230 or 01242 222 444.

    Thanks everyone for your kind assistance. I've phoned UCAS, and followed their instructions. I've also sent emails to my universities. Hope they acknowledge my correspondences so I know everything's taken care of.
