    I just got a request from Queen Mary's, York and Nottingham to prove my grades (I'm an international student). Does that mean they're considering the offer?

    It means they won't even start to asses your application until you provide the info they have asked for.

    Yes! And I talked with a lot of students who study there and they love it! The teachers are great, the campus itself is one of the biggest and greatest in UK (they are always improving it... right now they are building a new building) - and the buildings are like a mixture between modern and old which is beautiful! Also, the campus is in London and it is just 15 minutes away from the central London... So, besides the hard study, you can also relax and have fun in one of the best cities in the world.. The fact that the uni is located in London is also really good because they have partnership with several companies and research institutes in London... Moreover, all the uni facilities are some of the best in the UK, I bet... It's rare not to find a room there full of MAC's and all the resources you need...The only reason why the uni is not better ranked is because of the entry standards - they accept a lot of student with different backgrounds (even those whose grades are not so good) because for them every motivated human being deserves an opportunity to study!This is the information I colected.. Also, for your course specifically I think they have also fantastic laboratories and science facilities and the teachers are also good I hope this help u... cheers

    What are your conditions and why do you think they would ignore them?

    I am an international student doing the University of London International Foundation Programme, final exam during April. My forecast result submitted was 4A ( overall distinction). In the con. offer they requested IELTS which I have not done it ( perhaps my local high school English test - Cambridge 1119 English Syllabus could be sent to argue as it is well-recognised by most UK unis for undergraduate admission.

    I am curious about the chances of being upgraded to uncon. offer. Heard of some uni. provided the condition to place the offer as first choice secured offer. Is that true?

    Not Durham (afaik), and certainly not unless they had told you it was an option when they gave you the offer.

    You would need to check with them regarding the Englisg language requirement.

    And presumably their offer is also conditional on you achieving a certain result in your Foundation Program. As that result will be known (in April) before the deadline for confirming your choices (5th May) then if your English is ok it might be worth delaying accepting the offer until after those results, at which point it would basically become unconditional...

    Do you have other offers to consider?
