    You have an unconditional for that University, but you'll still need A-levels if you want to transfer uni at any point and to get a job at uni or after you have graduated. Whilst technically you can get 3 Us and be fine for uni, I would recommend still putting in effort to get decent grades. An unconditional is not an excuse to do nothing, it's more of a support in case exams don't go as well as you hoped

    The first answer was correct. Many, if not most, employers look at both A-levels and degrees when assessing new graduate applicants, so a bad A-level record could be fatal to your early career prospects, as well as putting the mockers on any attempt to start afresh if the first university course does not go well.

    Thanks I didn't really know how the employers assess jobs

    If you drop out, you will no longer be completing A-levels and this could void your offer.

    You could theoretically sit your exams and write nothing but, aside from the fact that there tends to be A-level pre-requisites for graduate schemes, A-levels are designed to prepare students for higher education - they are a necessary step in your intellectual development. You would be entering university with a less than desirable skillset (not to mention the potential for an attitudinal habit of doing only the bare minimum rather than doing what is optimal).

    Haha technically you could but it's probably a good idea to try and get the best grades possible XD. Maybe take it a bit easier but don't take the piss loll
