    it's normal, they base the decision on your predicted grades from AS.

    a classmate of mine got an unconditional offer, and she's a year 13 too.

    Are you predicted higher grades than they ask? 3 A*s for example, because that might be why..

    Ok, I'm guessing you have modules that would make up enough points for 2Es? Yes? That's what their 'requirement' actually is (it is the minimum grades with which a university is allowed to accept you).

    A uni can give you an unconditional offer for any reason it likes, so what? Trinity College at Cambridge used habitually to give people 2E offers as a sign it liked them. It doesn't mean they think you'll get two Es.

    Well done and all, but bit confused why this is such a big deal.

    I would contact them, then they will either confirm it and then you can feel assured that nothing is wrong, or they can say it was a mistake. But even if it is a mistake, it looks like the kind of mistake that is made when they were trying to give you a conditional offer anyway, so I wouldn't worry too much.

    Also for Kings you should have been given a log in to their own application system on their website. I would have a check of this and see what it has to say on the issue.

    I just got UCAS track notification and apparantly I have an unconditional offer from KCL for geography...:woo:

    Now get ready for the strange bit:

    Their entry requirements are 3 A-levels.
    I am Y13 and yet to complete my full A-levels

    Now how can I get an unconditional offer???? Is this normal or am I right to feel bloody confused right now?....

    THIS IS NO JOKE
    My college told us that if this happened then it meant that our application form had been filled out wrong. Or the University would have made a mistake. You need to ring your college or the University or something because it needs to be corrected. If you accepted it they'd want proof of your grades and you wouldn't be able to give them any.

    why wont some of you be a bit more open minded....

    NO im not lying
    NO i aint a troll
    NO im not "pretending to be a younger"

    this is actually what happened...simple as
    I do believe you as it's possible in certain circumstances but I'd still phone KCL just to check if it was a mistake or not. If not then everyone here will be told and if not, well honesty is the best policy and KCL would properly appreciate the honestly of your enquiry.

    I don't get what the problem is here! :woo:

    Basically, they really liked you at interview / liked your personal statement, and therefore want to reward you with an unconditional offer, so that you are more likely to put them as your first choice!

    Just make sure that your academic stuff was entered correctly (check on ucas track), and if it is, then you've got the unconditional due to your own achievement, so there's no need to contact them!

    congrats!

    Even if it was a mistake, they couldn't take it away again. It's a contract where they're saying they don't care what grades you get.
