So, say I want to apply for a particular course at Warwick and they have requirement of a certain grade I do not meet for maths. Can I say I am sitting the exam (which I intend to if I receive an offer) and If I don't receive a conditional offer, can I just cancel the GCSE maths exam? I can't see why not but do I break any rules?

Yes can can but you might well have to pay for it anyway. I would suggest discussing this with your school. Also you will have to contact any other universities that you have applied to. They have made offers based on you taking that exam and would have the right to withdraw the offer. It is highly unlikely they would do that but by changing something in your application you are technically breaking your part of the contract with them. Why not just sit it anyway. You would lose nothing by doing so. What exam and grade is it and for what subject.

You can but you'll need to inform every uni whose offer you hold at the time you withdraw your entry..

What if Warwick is the only uni of the ones I'm applying to that I don't meet the target. I would only be taking the exam for WW

Yes but you are changing your application so they all need to be told.

In my opinion, I recommend to do it anyway since you might need a higher math grade in the future (you never know) and especially if you already paid and studied for it then why not just do the exam? However if you believe that taking that exam will affect your performance in other important alevel exams then cancel it.

I do not believe you can. That grade is what you have attained. Covid exam rules were different this year in terms of taking the best grade but usually if you get a grade and then you the retake the exam and get a lower grade than that is the grade you have to take. It is on the records and I think your are duty bound to abide by this ruling.

Ask yourself what would I lose without taking it. I cant see the point of not taking it but if you dont make sure you check first whether other universities are OK with it
