    If you make any changes your obliged to inform UCAS, and I believe universities retain the right to withdraw your offer as your academia has changed. Universities may have given you offers on the basis of being impressed at you doing 5 A levels. Sorry Buddy, just don't put so much effort in the one you don't think you'll need.
    true say, thanks for the advice!

    Exactly!

    Predicted A*A*AA and im doing the AEA for maths
    GCSEs 4A* 8 A
    I only have Exeter - which im def not complaining since i really want to go there
    Now waiting for Warwick and that will prob be another rejection. Happy days.
    It's so degrading, having to come to terms with the fact I'll probably be going to my fifth choice, I even had an interview at Cambridge so I thought I had a reasonable chance with others. So demotivating, at least my exams are over, LSE will most probably be a rejection. I was hoping for so much more. Only real hope is to get the grades, and re apply next year while at uni, then if I do get any better offers I can enjoy the higher fees. So an all round win.

    Same, when i got an interview at Cambridge i at least thought my grades were decent enough to get me through that barrier, the interview went awful because i had no idea what they were on about but thats my fault, not my UCAS application so whatever Nott is basing this on, they just missed out on very good candidates.

    You have the same A levels as me and better grades than I could hope for, I suppose doing AS further maths has really helped me get an offer from Bristol.

    I would guess you had few GCSE A*s? This might be the reason for the rejections. I think you have a good chance at york and a fair chance at Durham.

    So what have you done in your gap year? Why didn't you do more learning i.e further maths A level or economics/history? Maybe you would have got the offers you desired then.
