    okay so, on my UCAS i said that i was doing an epq but after i got my offers and saw that none of them required a specific grade in it so I was thinking it would me a massive waste of time , especially considering exams are so close. I've done everything except the presentation, which i missed because i was ill and the Logbook states that without a presentation you get a big fat U. I could try to reschedule but it just seems like a massive hassle and im waiting on my firm and insurance to reply to my email asking them if dropping it will affect my offers. also, i was just curious that, if i do end up having to do it, could i just submit the garbage i have now and get a U because technically i wasn't required to get an A or anything and at least that way i have submitted a piece of work???

    Your offers are conditional on you completing the qualifications you declared in your application.

    If you drop your EPQ without the permission/agreement from your universities then they *can* withdraw or amend your offers. If this is something you're considering then RING THEM and ask now and get confirmation in writing from them. Don't email - emails are at the bottom of the pile of questions.

    If they don't agree to you dropping the EPQ then you can do the bare minimum and meet your other conditions and it wont affect your application (although if you miss your offer slightly a good EPQ grade can often be a deciding factor when deciding which near miss applicants to accept).

    Given that you've done EVERYTHING except the presentation it doesn't seem like it will be that difficult to reschedule the presentation and get an ok grade. tbh you sound like you're just being a bit lazy and looking for excuses.
