    Hello! I'm an American student interested in attending a UK university and I submitted my UCAS application about 20 minutes ago (yes!).

    I noticed on the websites of some universities that there are Entry Requirements in the USA section of their International page, and there are Course-Specific Requirements for each course. I meet the Entry Requirements easily (as I have fairly high test scores), but I'm worried that I will not score highly enough on my IB exams to meet the Course-Specific Requirements.

    So I guess my question is this: will the universities give me conditional offers based on my IB scores, or might they give me unconditional offers based solely on the fact that I meet the Entry Requirements?

    Well, you should really have checked this before sending off your application... If you're taking the IB it's possible that your offers will be based on that, simply because it's the qualification UK universities will be more familiar with.

    Well, it would not have changed my choices much, and I had wanted to make sure my PS was as good as possible.

    And yeah...I was afraid that might be the case. Thank you for the response.
