    At the moment I'm doing 4 subjects for A2 and can't be asked really. Say if I get a 3 subject offer, can I then drop one of the subjects and just continue with 3?

    If you ask your universities first. They might say no, but will probably say yes.

    You can't unilaterally change any aspect of your application. That includes dropping subjects.

    It depends on what subject you're thinking of dropping and the relation is has to your course. For example if you wanted to study Medicine and after receiving an offer you decided to drop chemistry, your selected universities would likely withdraw their offers.

    Talk to your school first and then contact the universities you've applied to for definite clarification.

    I'm looking to study a Language and would like to withdraw History. The only reason I'm even doing it in the first place is to make up hours in school but I could just sit in the back of class doing other work.

    Since you are a language student, you'll probably be interested to learn that the phrase is "can't be arsed", not "can't be asked". Everybody can be asked.

    If you drop a subject you have to notify UCAS and the universities you have applied to, and they have the right to withdraw or change the terms of any offer they have made. It is much better to consult them before doing so than to receive a nasty surprise afterwards.

    Well if that's the case, I highly doubt this will impact on your university offers. The two aren't particularly closely related.

    But again, I would just double check with your school and universities.
