    Hey,

    I'm currently on my gap year and resitting some A2 exams over the next few weeks.

    My question is: Because my exam results day will be in March, i'll know which uni's I can / cannot get into with my grades. If i miss an offer by a grade, do you think the uni's will be more flexible than in August because they'll be alot less enquiries in March?
    Is the deadline still 15th May (or whatever it is) for people like me?

    Thanks in advanced!!! :flip:

    Universities won't know how many other people have met their offers in March, so if you miss yours then you'll probably have to wait until August to find out whether they can accept you or not. However, you will still have until 4 May to reply. So you can wait and see what grades you get and then choose a firm that you know you have met.

    I think i'l ring them on my results day anyway and see what they say.

    Any idea if my offer will become unconditional if i do meet the offer?

    Your offer will become unconditional when the uni tells UCAS you've met it and they're accepting you. So this could take a while, but should only take a few days really
