Heya,
My friend got offered a place at Oxford to read French and Russian. When she aplied she had 4 subjects for a-level and now she realises she can't cope doing them all. She has already dropped one subject having asked for permission at all her other unis, except she said Oxford hadn't gotn bak to her yet. Is she risking her place at Oxford? Does anyone know or think that that behaviour is frowned upon?

How long ago did she contact them? Was it by letter or email? Did they acknowledge her letter/email?

If they give her an offer of AAA or whatever, do they have the right to retract an offer?

But how long ago was it? If it was two/three days ago..there's nothing to worry about! Do you have to inform them you are dropping a subject, what happens if you don't?

i think you have to inform them if you plan to drop a subject. if they tell you that you can't, yet the offer they made you is only in terms of 3 grades, there is nothing to stop you just cutting out the lessons and getting something like AAAE

You have to inform your unis if you're dropping a subject cos the the terms of the UCAS form say that all the exams you put down that you'll be taking, you have to do....

i got an AAA offer at cambridge and was doing for a-levels; having emailed the college they said there was no problem with my dropping one subject but i had to write formally to the admissions tutor. she hasn't written back yet- i assume this is because she is too busy acknowledging the formal letters asking to drop a couple of subjects from all the other successful applicants?!

Why can your friend not cope doing 4 A levels? Is it for personal reasons, or academic?

both

It's likely to be the former reason that's leading to the latter, hopefully this will be sorted out in time for univ
