    I wouldn't worry at all, your results are very strong in general although I'm not sure what course you are doing and which universities you are considering so I can't say too much. However, as somebody else quite rightly said before, unconditional offers are a rarity and I would say it is very, very, unlikely. I also want to add that it really is irrelevant - you're going into A2 with good grades, if you work well at A2 you should have no problem meeting offers, I think.
    The plan is to do Music at Edge Hill. And absolutely, an unconditional (however unlikely) would by no means mean I'd get complacent and sit back purely because i'm 'in no matter what'. I'd still strive for the best grades! Thanks for your help, and for not being a douche about my naivety!

    The way I see it, The Student Room is a place for debate, discussion, and to ask questions - being naïve about something shouldn't be an issue here so really, don't thank me for it.

    I wish you all the best.

    All I will say that I'd rather get those grades you did, in those subjects you did rather than getting 'EDDU' in 3 sciences and maths. The levels of disrespect on TSR to people not interested in STEM subjects is unreal. Its as though they think that if you dont get A*A*A* and go to Oxbridge/UCL/imperial, you deserve to be thrown into the scrapheap of unwanted members in society. Im not even gonna start on the attitude towards btec students

    With the excpetion of psychology you got great grades in subjects that would make me want to shoot myself so congratulations As a STEM student, I would like to say sorry on behalf of my fellow STEM students for their fuking annoy superiority complexes. You got your grades and they affect you and nobody else. You probably did a lot beter than half of them anyway.

    As for the unconditional offer, my friend got an unconditional offer and she got straigh As at AS. You have a chance but it is rare so don't get your hopes up too much

    I would say it depends on the uni. Most universities do not hand out many unconditional offers as far as I'm aware. Nevertheless, I applied to Birmingham last year for music with the AS grades AABC (A in music) and received an unconditional offer. I was surprised at first (not the most stellar grades) but then after some google searches found out they are one of the top unis to hand out unconditional offers, along with a few others. With those grades and a good personal statement, you could get an unconditional offer from Birmingham, but I don't know enough about Edge Hill to say if you would there.
