    I'm quite confused i checked my emails today and i got a notification that my UCAS application had been changed. To cut a long story short my Conditional firm choice at Glasgow has changed to an Unconditional. My entry requirements were a B at one of my highers and a c at one of my advanced highers or two c's at my advanced highers. I'm really confused can someone explain to me what has happened.

    Have you already achieved these grades, or are you waiting to hear about them in August?

    I will find out in August if i have achieved them but i got an email saying that they are happy that i have confirmed the unconditional offer, and on track it says that my firm choice which was the conditional at glasgow is now an uncoditional and now i'm really confused. Do you think i should just phone them or what??

    Yeah, I think you should phone them and explain that you're still waiting on results. :p: It sounds like a error on their end to me, but the worst they're going to do is take it back to conditional and, contrary to popular opinion, mistakes made on UCAS are not binding so it's of no good to you at the moment if they didn't mean to make it unconditional.

    The best that can happen is a nice surprise where they've decided they want you so much they're accepting you unconditionally. Very small chance, though, so prepare to be told it was an error.

    There's no need to phone UCAS - if it's genuine, nothing needs to be done; if it was an error, the university will sort it out from their end.

    Did you have an insurance offer and, if so, what is that now displaying on UCAS?

    It could be that your works been walked and the results have been sent to UCAS. I'm starting Glasgow in September, what are you studying?

    Well, that's good news that nothing needs to be corrected there.

    That it hasn't changed means that Glasgow probably did make a mistake - when the results come out and firms have been met, insurances are then informed they aren't needed. Have you got through to them yet?

    I phoned up admissions at Glasgow apparently i achieved ABBB at my first sitting the entry requirements are AAAB meaning i was two a's away. I completed Top-up and achieved sufficent grades that meant that my entry requirements were lowered by a grade each. Instead of needing a two c's at my advanced highers my two b's at first sitting were taken in to consideration and that is why i was offered an unconditional. Brilliant wee surprise means i don't need to worry about getting in anymore. Thanks everyone for your help

    Oh, that is excellent news - well done! Time to just relax, wait for uni and laugh at your friends worrying about results.
