    How does one contact UCAS to tell them this?

    Also, how does one tell their Firm and Insurance uni this without sounding like a flaky loser?

    Once they confirm your application has been updated then email admissions at your universities to let them know.

    Remember though that in changing your qualifications offered your universities have the option to amend or withdraw their offers when you notify them of the change (and if you don't notify them then your offers are no longer technically valid).

    Was doing the EPQ a major part of your application? But I'd do what @PQ said...

    It makes up a reasonably significant part of your application so although it may not be part of an offer it will still be something they have included in their consideration of your application. You should tell any unis BEFORE dropping a subject in case they object (which they might, although probably won't).

    I told them that I'd dropped mine on the applicant day :cute: I explained why, and he said that it wouldn't make a difference, as their offers never include EPQ anyway - as long as I got the grades in the 3 subjects, then it's fine.

    It will vary from uni to uni, and even from course to course though, so make sure you do tell them soon :yep:
