1. Ok first off i have 2 offers at the moment one i understnad andd the other i dont

The one i understand is this one

240 points from at least two A2 levels

I understand this to mean that this yearr my results must be CCC .

THE OFFER I DONT UNDERSTAND IS

A minimum of 240 UCAS Tariff points including

GCE A level

Last year i got BB at A level so does that mean that the GCE A level at grades cc has been met and this year i will have to ensure my total ucas points equals 240

at the moment im on 230 UCAS POINTS FROM THE 2 YEARS I HAVE STUDIED AS .

So surely this year i would just need say an e or something?

If this is the case why didnt the uni just give me an unconditional offer.

Interestingly you seem to fully understand the one you claim you don't - you now just need to top up the points to 240 - but not the one that you claim you do understand. The first example requires you to get your points entirely from full A levels and to get at least two of them. This can be achieved by various combinations, including AA, ACE, BCD, CCC, DDDD.

so if i have the grades already why would they ask me for them. Why wouldnt they just give me an unconditional offer.

Im still slightly confused about it but this is my first choice so i really want to get it.

You don't have the grades already. You only have AS levels (according to your OP). Both your offers demand at least two full A levels.
