    Hello,
    I have applied for and received 5 offers on UCAS track. with the one I had in mind being an unconditional, this has lead to me slacking on my work (which I really know I shouldn't be doing and will get sorted out today) but the college is threatening to withdraw my application, can they do this?

    Thanks

    Who told you this?

    Of course they can't 'withdraw your application' - it's your application, not theirs!!

    It is you who applied to university via UCAS, and only you can withdraw the application, or make changes as to university/course choices etc. That's not to say that the college could make things difficult for you, in particular with the reference

    It'd be better if you could work with your college to improve your attendance and general work output so they feel able to fully support your UCAS application.

    That's the thing, my application has been sent and I have gotten all of my offers, my attendance isn't even bad, as of now it's at 94%, but they're saying they can withdraw my application even though I have gotten all of my offers.

    As far as I am aware, colleges don't withdraw your UCAS application, you can only withdraw as it's your application!

    They can't withdraw your application

    They can expel you from your course for non attendance which would invalidate your unconditional offer (and they can notify your universities of this)

    No, they can't do that - it's rubbish. However, you've only found this information out through word of mouth ("a friend told me"). I'd ascertain the facts fully when you're next in before doing anything about it. I suspect your friend is winding you up. However, if it is true, then I think they're just trying to scare you into playing ball, but I do think it is irresponsible of them to do this.

    Your college tutors should raise concerns (if they have any) with you, you're attendance is good, they shouldn't say they're gonna 'withdraw your application' because they can't, and if they've already sent off their reference about you to UCAS, then I highly doubt they can do much in terms of a UCAS application..
