    How do you get unconditional offers??
    Two options... being a genius, or already having the required grades

    You have achieved A level grades before you apply.

    Or you apply to a Uni that gives out unconditional offers like confetti to anyone who is upright and breathing (think - if they have to do this to fill their courses, would you really want to go there).

    Hey this was the top course right? A*A*A . What were your predicted and overalls like?
    And how long did it take and are you international
    Well idk the requierement was A*AA which is quite high I think (but it's not too unsual for maths and physics courses which tend to have high entry requirements). I'm studying in France so I'll be doing the French bac with international option. I am predicted an 18/20 (for comparison Cambridge's entry requirement for french students is 16/20 so A*A*A) with 19 in maths and 18 in physics.

    The offer is conditional upon achieving 14 overall, 15 in maths and 14 in physics (so I think it should be alright). And it took a week or so but it appears as though they might have taken quite long to answer for that course cause I got a mail saying I may only get an answer after january as the course was highly competitive.

    Hope this helped

    I have applied to Warwick and Bath for Economics also. I am waiting like yourself, I suspect that because of the courses competitive nature at both institutions they may take some time to respond. In the meantime good luck, I may see you at one of them!
    Glad to see someone in the same position!

    Good luck to you too! And I probably will

    Where else have you applied?

    I've applied to ICL, Warwick, Bath, KCL and UCL for biomedical science on Friday and have only gotten acknowledgements from Bath, Warwick and KCL
    Oh no, this means the world is coming to an end.

    Ah you're so lucky I really hope I get an offer from Bath too! I submitted mine to my college last week and they were supposed to send it off today but never did I'm just praying they send it off before half term as no one will be in during that week
    Definitely pester the teacher if you have to! I had to wait 2 weeks before mine was officially sent off due to teacher and computer issues, but hopefully you get to have it sent off soon and the offers start rolling in? Are you doing the MMath degree?

    No it came through earlier but have been too busy to be on TSR today. It came quite late though, around 6.

    Nice! I also applied on Wednesday so it will be interesting to see whether we get offers at the same time!

    Got an offer for Economics and Politics from Bath on Monday if that helps.
    When did you apply and what were your AS grades?

    And that's surprising, I always thought it took longer for joint honours because it has to go through two departments (usually).
