    Are u allowed to drop a subject after the school sends your predicted grade to uni?
    Your application for normal degrees will be by January the 15th 2017. Why would it have taken you almost 4 months to drop a subject? Schools give you up to 4 weeks to decide whether to keep, drop or swap a subject.

    Do not drop a subject 4 months into studying it. Make sure you make your decision before mid Nov to get rid of any hassle.

    Good luck!

    It is best not to, but it is possible in specific cases. Such as taking 3 A levels and a BTEC course. Or 4 A levels. If the university gives you an offer solely based on you getting 3 A level grades and not require you to at least pass the other A level or the BTEC course. Then dropping the non required subject is possible. But yeah, not recommended and the university can change their offer on the basis of you dropping it.

    Just figure it out before you send off your application. You have a good couple of months of doing the subject before you have to send in your UCAS application. So plenty of time to decide if you're going to drop it or not.
