    Possibly. Or the other way around.

    So what you're saying is that it might happen but that it's also possible that it will not?
    Reading it back I've realised I worded it awfully, what I was saying is that it's unlikely (but still possible) he'll get an unconditional, but will probably still get a conditional offer.

    For anyone who cares I've now applied but in a last minute bout of either madness or genius I applied for joint honours History with American & Canadian Studies because the course looked incredible. Think this would have similar chances of an unconditional? I didn't choose the course because of the unconditional though, but rather because it's something im sure I'd enjoy

    Sounds incredibly obscure. The odds are probably better.

    I kinda hope so but at the same time I'm just happy I found the course because I'm sure it's something I'd love doing-just wish I'd found it earlier!

    I have an unconditional offer for history at birmingham - I got 8 A's and 4 B's at GCSE, AABD at AS and am predicted AAA for A2. Make sure you've got a good personal statement, when I spoke to the history admissions tutor about it she said they use it to decide!

    Those are great results. As far as I can tell from people who have got unconditional my GCSE and predicted A2's are good enough, but my AS' seem a bit out as generally I think people have had at least 2 A's when they got an unconditional.
    I'm also thinking that while the course I applied for looks super interesting my personal statement is super geared towards History and hardly mentions America so that might disadvantage me. :P
