    Hi, I have applied to study mechanical engineering at uni and am waiting for my last offer. I have and will only receive conditional offers as I have failed maths last year, none of my choices required ah design. I’m taking advanced higher design and manufacture this year (got a B at higher) and want to drop it to focus on the rest of my subjects. Will this have any influence on my uni choices?

    You need to ask your universities before you drop it whether they would amend their offer.

    If they agree to let you drop it then you need to email [email protected] once you officially drop it explaining. Once they confirm that they have updated your application then you need to notify each of your universities directly.

    Then that would be fine too and wouldn't affect your offer.

    But there's no harm in asking (it's just important to ask before you officially drop any subject!) - they will usually be absolutely fine with you dropping an extra subject.
