    If you aren't studying what they have asked for then you can't accept that offer, unis arent generally lenient with level 2 qualifications so you're probably going to have to go for southampton.

    Is your Portsmouth offer conditional on getting the maths? And are you taking it at some point? If you put on your application that you were taking it, then they will have included it in the offer. If you did not say you were taking it and they included it in the offer, then they have made a mistake in making that offer and you need to contact them and discuss the situation.

    Well, in that case, it's surely Portsmouth (where you want to go) as your firm, and Solent as your insurance? Am I missing something?
