    I have dropped extended project in college as I feel it is not beneficial to myself and just generally boring.

    I have recieved all five offers from my universities and confirmed my firm and insurance choices. I have been told that the unis may in some cases change their offer due to me dropping the subject as I put it on my ucas application.

    Has this happened to anyone else??

    Have you let your firm and insurance university know you're no longer doing it? You also need to let UCAS know so it doesn't cause delays in getting your place confirmed on results day - they might not release your results to the universities if they think they're waiting on another grade for you.

    There are/will be a significant number of people who had their offers changed by universities as a consequence of dropping a subject which wasn't listed in their offer, yes.... but there are also people who were lucky. It totally depends on how the universities perceived your application to begin with and how important they consider the EPQ to be when choosing applicants.

    okay thanks for your help. No I havent yet, thats what I need to do now, but was wondering about the best way to approach them. I just hope it isnt too significant as I am applying for mechanical engineering at leicester and currently studying maths, physics and music, so I hope they dont see extended project as too relevant.
    Thanks

    Ideally you should phone them, and then if they say email or write you need to ask for a specific person to address it to. Make a note of who you spoke to and when and keep that safe in case of future problems - you shouldn't need it, but just in case.

    It's up to you how you do it. Some people advise just enquiring if the change will affect your offer, as then you can change your mind. Others say just tell them you've done it because as it's done they can't try to get you to un-drop it! Personally I don't think it matters either way.
