My offer is a straight BBB without any conditions, even though I read on the website that I'd need a B in Spanish and an A in English Literature to be considered. Technically doesn't that mean I don't even need a grade in one of these two subjects since I'm actually doing four A-Levels anyway? Has anyone else being made an offer without conditions? I just found it a little strange because one of my other subjects is ICT which doesn't even apply to the course.
mine doesn't have conditions either, which i thought was strange as all of my other offers stated the grades they wanted in french and english language as i'm doing linguistics. you can use all 4 A levels to get in, i'm doing 4 too, you just need to get BBB out of them. if they haven't stated subjects in your offer terms on UCAS then the grades can be from any of your subjects, regardless of what it says on the website.
mine isn't subject specific either for medical sciences. Which is funny because it means I can get onto that programme with maths, f. maths and chemistry! (well, amusing to me anyway.....) If those are the conditions that they've given you, they can't change or revoke an offer.
That's good then. It certainly ease the stress as it means I'll have met one grade before exams even start. Plus if I do well in my English coursework, with my grades from last year, I can afford a minor slip-up there too. It's a similar thing with Film too, which is good because I'm paranoid about messing up my Spanish oral. Mind you I though that I had last time around and came out with an A.
I wonder if there's any particular reason for them not giving out conditions to particular students?
Maybe they'll teach us it all when we get there, or because they give out unconditionals to scottish kids, they want us to prove that we have the basic level of ability to a similar standard as them. Syllibi between england and scotland must vary a lot as well so that may be relevant. Plus they know you are actually taking these exams - even if you don't get a B in them...
