    Hi guys.. I do 4 subjects, bio, chem, phys and maths and also an AQA extended project, all of which I put on my UCAS form. I have since received an offer from manchester which is AAB incl and A in chemistry..

    since it does not specify the 4th A level or the extended project grade, am I right to assume that I don't need them and can drop them I am finding the work load quite intense at the moment

    You have to contact the uni, cause they'll expect results after seeing it on your ucas, but should be fine dropping it.

    You have to notify both UCAS and your choices of the change, but you would be ill-advised to do anything irrevocable until after you have ascertained the attitude of the offering university to the change. They have the right to amend or rescind the offer if your application changes.

    I probably won't drop it to be honest, i'll just do what I can, and as long as I pass the 4th subject and extended project whilst achieving my offer they can't reject me :p:

    If the offer doesn't require it ditch it.

    I applied doing 6 A levels, once I got my offers it was down to 3 before you could blink.
