    I'm currently studying four A Levels, and all my universities have replied; I have four offers. But I also have the Welsh Baccalaureate pending on UCAS, with a predicted A* grade. It seems unlikely that this has been instrumental in any of my offers, especially given the broad range of my A Level subjects and I'm now feeling, due to my workload, practically forced to drop the loathsome advanced diploma. However, I have seen it said many times that Universities can withdraw conditional offers after such subject changes, and I am consequently rather paranoid about dropping Welsh Bacc . It seems stupid, when I could in theory just fail the 'subject' and still get into university, but nevertheless, should I first check with my universities? One of my offers says I can "substitute" the Welsh Bacc for a third A Level; it is not mentioned as a necessity in any.

    If you fail a subject then any offers made that exclude that subject will still stand.

    If you withdraw then it's just a case of emailing the address towards the bottom of this page: http://www.ucas.com/how-it-all-works...making-changes and letting your unis know. They're unlikely to give a **** especially if you're dropping it to focus on your A levels (but not telling them and withdrawing leave you open to rejection on a technicality).
