KCL state that a Year 0 Foundation year does not form part of the offer. However since I am applying with A levels whilst currently in my foundation year, does this mean I could do bad in my foundation year and they wouldn't care? (And for other unis who would be only making A level offers)

They mean that FY results will not be a condition of any offer BUT that doesn't mean that they might not take them into account when assessing you. They could request an interim transcript and if you results were poor that might give them second thoughts.

All unis are different and you would need to ask them directly how/if they take FY results into account, (especially if you already have AL grades sufficient to get in, or are retaking them).

I will be studying a total of 8 modules in my foundation year. I have got above 70% (1st in 3 of my modules) and I might get a 2:1 for a computational module which I hope doesn't look bad. But ok cool.
