    When you've met the requirements for your firm offer it's automatically upgraded to an unconditional. Quite simply, it means you're going to your firm!

    That's a really tricky situation, I'm so sorry to hear that I don't really know what to suggest as unfortunately the university have the upper hand here, but if I were you I would submit a DBS application and submit the necessary paperwork ASAP, if possible. DBS takes about two weeks if I remember correctly, so it should get back before the start of term. It's a very slim chance, but probably the only way of having any chance at all.

    That's really unprofessional of the university though Do you have your heart set on going there or would you consider enrolling elsewhere?
    So I sent a dBs for another uni which I received an offer which im happy to go to although I had my heart sat on this particular uni. Do you think the uni I had could send this dBs form to this other Uni? The problem is he said you can't fill this dBs form retrospectively I feel it's really unfair and I'm gutted any help is appreciated.

    I'm going to reapply and sit a couple more a levels. Not to Oxbridge though, I've had enough of them to be honest
    Don't shut the door to Oxbridge. You never know. there are people in your situation, who reapplied to Oxbridge and got in.

    Manchester is also a good choice.

    I think that as long as you have a strong application plus grades, it will be difficult to say no to you. Besides, if you have a decent internship or apprenticeship, then your case becomes stronger than others.

    Also, please make use of all your 5 choices. I know that you may really love your firm choice, but it is good to have two shortlisted options with an insurance for any eventuality.

    Don't be stressed about this situation. You can make the most of your year ahead.

    All the best.

    If she's never applied for it then I believe yes she's entitled to the full time of her course + 1 year.

    Age isn't taken into consideration at all except for working out whether you're dependent on your parents or classed as an independent applicant.

    You could suggest sending the DBS from the other university, but don't count on them still accepting you How have you contacted them? Maybe try asking to speak to someone higher up within admissions? Again, sorry to hear that this has happened.

    Someone from clearing contacted me they said they are "full" but if someone drops ring within 24h I guess I'll ask tommorow to speak to someone higher?
