    If you state in your application that you will be resitting exams and then you receive an unconditional offer do you still have to resit them? Or does this invalidate the terms of your offer?

    Unconditional means they'll take you no matter what, so you don't need to resit them.

    Yeah, I just don't want to spend time and money on an exam that I'm unlikely to improve on, plus I can devote more time to my other resit.

    I didn't know that my offer would be unconditional, by the time I received it I had already said that I would resit 4 exams. This is so confusing, I wish they made it easier to understand.

    You need to tell UCAS and the uni but it's unlikely they'll care

    You'll need to phone UCAS but can probably find an email address for the uni.
    Include UCAS number in email.

    Tell them you're not resitting X now because Y, and therefore Z will remain your grade. Then say something about how you're letting them know so that they don't expect to receive a grade from exam board in August.

    It's probably not a great idea to say that you don't want to spend time and money on it, though, as this could be interpreted as you saying it's a waste of time - and you don't want them to think you think learning new stuff is a waste of time

    That's exactly how I don't want to come across, what reason could I give though? Other than I already hold a B which is the entry requirement.

    If you haven't got a good reason then leave that bit out. They might reply asking why - and if they do you'll have to think of something - but they might just accept it.
