    Hello everyone,

    I received two offers which require 38 IB in total with 766 on higher levels. I have four HLs currently and want to drop one of them to the standard level. (The combination is still fulfilled the requirement) Do I need to tell universities the change I made?

    Also, I'm still waiting for two other universities. If I made a change, should I email them as well or it would be better to change subjects after I receive replies from both?

    You need to ASK your universities before making this change.

    If you change the qualifications you're taking then a university can change or withdraw an offer. If you change and don't notify them then your offers are technically invalid.

    If your universities tell you that it's fine and wont affect your offers then email [email protected] with the details of the change. Once UCAS confirm that they've updated your application then notify all of your universities.
