    I know there's probably no definitive answer to this question that anyone who isn't uni faculty can provide but I thought i'd ask anyway: Basically, For my EEE application for Strathclyde uni, I was given 3 conditions to meet as part of my offer. I have since met 2 or the conditions. The other condition was to participate in their summer school Maths programme and get an A in the final exam.

    The exam was yesterday and I've come away from it very much doubting that I got the A. I don't think I've failed it by any means but I do think I fluffed it enough to not get what I need.

    Has anyone else been in a similar situation in the past, particularly with Strathclyde summer school? Does a missed condition = automatic rejection?

    You're right, nobody here can give you a definitive answer, and frankly it would be unwise and unhelpful to speculate. It isn't very likely that someone with the same conditions as you will read this thread, I suggest you look the University of Strathclyde forum or else use the search function (top right) to see if anyone else on this forum has mentioned the summer school.

    Universities get your results before you do and they have time to decide if they still want to accept you if you missed your conditions, but there's no way to predict what will happen, you will just have to wait and see.

    Got BBC, missed my conditional offer of a BBB AT City University but they still took me.

    Depends on the uni and a bit of luck involved too
