Question about Receiving an Offer

    I received an email today saying that I have received a 'recommendation' that I be given an offer for the LLM I applied to study 'pending final checks'. I was really happy, but now I'm kind of paranoid about the conditions of the offer I'm about to receive. I'm predicted 68 at undergraduate level and I haven't yet received my results for the May exams, but I feel like I did really badly. Although It's almost impossible that I will come out with a 2:2 overall, I almost certainly won't be getting a 1st. My question is basically:

    - Is it normal for postgrad conditional offers to require a 1st at undergraduate level?
    - Considering I'm predicted 68, would they give me an offer that I at least achieve 68 overall? (this seems unlikely now)

    On the university website it states that a minimum 2:1 is required to apply. I'm just getting paranoid, I think. thanks for any help guys.

    Relax, they obviously like you and want to give you an offer. They say they want a 2.1 minimum so I strongly suspect this will be your offer. I've not heard of a First conditional offer before (that's not to say it couldn't happen). You'll be fine. Good luck!
