    Hello!
    I am currently in 6th year of high school in Scotland and have attained 5 highers in my 5th year which has got me an unconditional offer at every university which I've applied for (not trying to boast, I'm just trying to give everyone a better picture of the situation I'm in). In my UCAS application it has said that I am sitting 3 subjects in my 6th year, 1 higher and 2 advanced highers, however due to unforeseen circumstances I have had to drop down to just one advanced higher in the last week (I have finished the course for the 2 subjects I have dropped, my school advised me not to sit them as they were concerned if having a high workload at this time would effect me negatively). My first choice university would be Edinburgh, I have attempted to make contact with them but I'm still waiting for their reply.

    Will this cause the universities to withdraw/change their offer? This has made me so anxious as I feel like I have completely ruined my future. I don't feel like my school would make any comment to the universities regarding this issue but I will obviously see if they can. Please reply if you are familiar with the Scottish grading system as I believe it is slightly different with A-levels.
    Thanks!!

    Only the unis can answer that question because in some cases they will want that particular qualification or for you to meet some minimum requirements and in some cases they may not be too bothered if they really want you.
