I have sent off my uni application and received offers, my first choice offer is ABC and last year I got BCD (Maths, Biology and Physics). However, I'm considering dropping biology and instead doing 6 units of BTEC IT to make my life a little easier as I'm really struggling with biology this year. One thing I'm not sure of is, say I got a distinction in IT this year would that count as the A in my offer?

does anyone think this is a good/bad idea?

If you didn't mention it on your UCAS form, then no. The offer is conditional on achievement in the A Levels that you put as 'pending' qualifications on UCAS. My advice would be to knuckle down and focus on making the grade in biology. You have 4 - 5 months, which is plenty of time.

Summary: It's a bad idea.

It's not a case of 'letting them know'; you'd have to ask your firm and insurance choices whether they're okay with this and, if not, then you'll have to continue with biology or miss your conditional offer come results day.
