    But then my other unis know I've dropped it (biology) as they said they want As in Maths and Chem and a B in geog. So i'm hoping this is a typing error? But it shouldn't change my offer right as they want 2 sciences (out of bio,chem,physics and maths) and i do Maths and Chemistry.

    This is for Optometry btw :P

    I would speak to the university directly and ask that they can clarify exactly what their offer was as it could be that its an admin error but you wont know until you ask really.

    So do I just ask them to clarify what their offer was or do i also let them know about how i've dropped biology and thought i could cause they wanted any two sciences?

    I'm really bad at emails - I feel like i'm too informal in them :/

    I would just ask them to clarify the offer. You could always call their general admissions department, they should be able to help? (i dont like formally emails myself either:P)

    If you have filled out your application form correctly, then it is clearly a mistake on the part of the university. They are not going to expect you to suddenly take the subject up again. Simply call the university up and ask to speak to the admissions department for your subject and explain what the problem is.
