    So I just got an offer to St. Hilda's for Chemistry (very happy!!), and it was for 2 A*s and an A, with no specific subject mentioned. I currently study Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics. Can I drop Physics (I hate it) and still keep my offer? It will let me focus on my other subjects and be more likely to reach the offer. I am currently predicted 3 A*s and an A in Physics.

    Thanks for the help.

    As it won't affect you meeting your offer, you should be able to drop it, but best to contact admissions and confirm before doing so. If you drop it you'll have to contact UCAS to update your application. Congrats on the offer!

    You will need to contact your college to ask. Whilst your offer might not be dependent on the grade you get in Physics, your offer is conditional on your UCAS application being correct. And in your UCAS application, you presumably wrote that you were going to take A2 Physics. It's possible that Oxford will be fine with it but you need to get in contact with them.

    Ring them and ask because physics maybe integral to modules so they may require you to keep physics on.
