    I got an unconditional offer for Law, and I really want it to be my insurance, so I've emailed them to clarify. It should state on UCAS if it'll revert to conditional if not firm - but it doesn't, so I'm presuming insurance is ok, but I've contacted them to check.

    Unless it specifically says 'unconditional if firm' then it is an unconditional no matter what

    Universities are doing two different things with pre-A level unconditional offers.

    1 Some are making conditional offers but are writing to say that if you make this your firm choice, they will turn it unconditional.

    2 Others are making straightforward unconditional offers through UCAS. These can be accepted as either firm or insurance offers.

    I am not aware of any university that is purporting to make unconditional offers through UCAS to which they are trying attach strings by letter.

    In previous years Birmingham was doing 1 and Leicester was doing 2.

    Here is the position with Leicester

    Sorry I probably should have posted something. I emailed them to clarify abd they said it will remain unconditional, regardless of if it's my firm or insurance choice.

    Are any of you going to the conference day thing on the 6th? Or have any of you booked onto the visit days?

    I went to an open day in the summer and really liked it. If you go, I'd have a wonder around the city too because it gives you a good feel for the place, and go on the bus tour to the accomodation.
