    So if you get an unconditional, you can miss all your exams and get accepted in?
    No, you cannot. The unconditional means that you you are allowed in regardless of your results doesn't mean you can not have some sort of results. This means you have to sit the exam and not doing so you are breaking the agreement and it is your responsibility to contact Ucas/ the university. Don't jeopardize your unconditional by not sitting the exam.

    I've had three offers so far one of which is unconditional if I make it my firm choice. They are making the decision very hard.
    What uni was this for?

    I got one from Keele for History today, as long as I put it as my firm, otherwise it will be ABB. It is my 5th choice though, so unless I don't get any more offers, I'll put it as my insurance so it goes to ABB.

    No, it just showed up on my UCAS track. This is what it says exactly.

    "This offer is subject to you obtaining GCE A-Level grades ABB. We are pleased to offer you a place under our Unconditional Offer Scheme - this means that if you accept Keele as your firm choice the conditions above will no longer apply. You will then automatically be made unconditional. Please note you are still expected to complete the studies leading to your prospective qualifications."

    Got an unconditional from Birmingham a couple of weeks ago. Offers from 4/5 of my unis so far so pretty happy I guess.

    certain universities are making unconditional offers. It started with Birmingham who were offering unconditional offers to applicants where the predicted grades were AAA. Since then numerous other unis have started doing this including Lancaster and Leicester. A university doesn't necessarily do it for every subject though. The reason behind all this is that pre 2012 every uni had a set quota they could take on. If they exceeded these numbers they got fined. Since the caps have been removed some universities have increased their intake so others were not filling theirs. This is why they are making unconditional offers and usually only if you make them your firm choice. I hope this helps explain what is happening
    Surely mature students should get unconditional offers? Or are there other conditions?

    i.e. me, I took my A-Levels in 2011, got my grades and have had experience since, would they be able to offer me a conditional as in "conditional if you use us as your first choice" ? Just curious if you know or anyone else does because at an open day someone said that if I made their uni my first choice then I would surely get in but I thought to myself I can't do that unless you offer me something
