I am very sure that once a university gives you an unconditional offer, they cannot take it away. That is the difference between an unconditional and a conditional offer. That means that even if you didn't turn up to your exams, you'd still get into university- providing you have an uncondtional.
Hope everything works itself out though!

Hi, I do English, Psychology and Biology and I have firmed an unconditional offer to do Psychology at uni in September.
My English and Psychology exams went okay and I have my fingers crossed for As and maybe an A*.
However, my biology exam was horrible. I revised 90+% of the content but most of the paper (WJEC) I found to be applied questions which I really struggle with with biology.
I got an E and a D in my biology mocks, and in my biology exam last week I really think I could've got a U. The worst thing is that was the exam I preferred, and now have an even harder one on Thursday. My teacher predicted me an A (I didn't ask for this) but all year I've just struggled with applying biology knowledge, in contrast to psychology where I do so well because I can seamlessly apply knowledge.
Last year in WJEC AS Biology I got 90 points in unit 1 (B), 88 points in unit 2 (B) and 56 points in unit 3 (A), I don't know if these points are then totalled, but if so it comes to 234. I got a B overall.
I'm really really worried about failing biology to the extent that I'm having panic attacks that may be triggered by this. And I'm worried of my uni taking away my unconditional offer and leaving me not knowing what I'm going to do. The ONLY okay thing about this year is that there is a practical unit like the A I got in AS which I should have done okay on. But I doubt that's enough.
Worrying is pointless and is especially a waste of time in your situation. Your worry is not really logical and is not consistent with the true facts of your situation. Keep reminding yourself there is NO rason to worry and you will be going to Uni.
