    I've recieved two offers from Birmingham for Environmental Science, however one course is with a work placement abroad.
    My first offer requires BBB in Geography, Biology and Environmental Studies, which is fine.
    However, my second offer, for the placement abroad, requires AAB in Geography, Biology and Environmental Science.
    It says this on track and the offer letter I recieved, but I don't take Environmental Science! Environmental Science was switched to Environmental Studies at my college because the coursework was regarded pointless, and without a practical coursework it lost it's science label.
    What should I do?
    Is this just a mistake, or should I ring up the university to discuss it?
    I don't want them to reject me because they thought I did Environmental Science?

    You'll have to phone them up. They might change their decision, but if you accept it and turns out on results day that the uni can't match it up, it would result in confusion and possibly rejection anyway.
