    Hi, so i applied to Study Politics at UWS, reading their requirements it stated i needed nat 5 maths, however when i went to the Ucas open Day i spoke to one of their administration members and told them that im on my last year of school and i dont have a nat 5 maths nor am i taking it. She said to still apply but it will hinder my application. So i applied and last week i recieved a conditonal offer from them saying i need to achieve 3 B's and a pass at nat 5 maths. On my ucas application, i never stated that i was doing nat 5 maths or achieved it (obvs). I didnt even put down my highest qualification for maths which is a nat 4 (dont judge i hate maths). Im so confused, are they assuming i am doing nat 5 maths this year or what? Helpp.

    You're probably correct, but i was told that universities cant take away offers they've already given.

    If details change they can and it's impossible to meet the one they ve given you anyway

    So do you think they'll review my application again and decide whether to revoke my offer or just change the offer i.e take away the requirement of nat 5 maths and increase the grades? or even just remove the pass at n5 maths?

    It's rare a university would accept someone without maths qualifications I think but I imagine they ll look at your application again
