    I have got an unconditional offer for university and I am currently doing BTEC and college and was wondering if I could leave college as I feel like it is pointless to continue with coursework.

    That's what I have done. So I could work between now and September. Probably best to confirm with the university first.

    Check your offer closely. Some unconditionals have a minimum grade tied into it (these offers aren't there to let you just say "no thanks i'm not going to continue with this course anymore I cba").

    And considering you're roughly halfway into the year, why not just finish it off? Would've been a waste of effort and time if you just dropped out now.

    Speak to the university first unconditionals are generally with the assumption that you ll finish the qualification you put on your application

    Get your qualification. If anything goes wrong at uni you have something extra to fall back on and it's a good opportunity to practice self-motivating.

    If the university are fine with it, then you just need to iron out the details with UCAS and SFE/SLC. However again, make sure you're absolutely certain the conditions of the offer make this possible. Often an "unconditional" offer is really just a "soft conditional" offer where they expect you to complete the course to the best of your ability but aren't requiring any specific grades beyond a pass or completing the course and doing everything you can to succeed without having to specifically apply mitigating circumstances or what have you if you don't pass.

    The only people who can really answer this are the admissions team of the offering university however. I would recommend contacting UCAS and subsequently SFE/SLC if you've applied for funding from them to make sure all your details are updated correctly to reflect this change (which shouldn't affect your eligibility for the course or funding).
