    I applied for C100 Biology
    and they have given me a conditional but changed the course code to a 1 year foundation science does that mean i can do it but they want me to do that first?
    I'm not going to do it anyway but still id like to know!

    Sounds like it.

    If you're not sure, contact them and ask.

    If for some reason you do consider it though, you would want to check with them whether it's counted an integrated foundation year, as on UCAS it's down as a 1yr course, which makes it sound like a stand-alone foundation year, which would affect the eligibility for student finance.

    Are you a mature student?

    Durham tends to do this too for mature students or people who have been out of education for a while

    Yes, looks like they want you to do the foundation because of your A-levels. I am guessing that this is a recent change on track, in which case you should soon hear from the university directly with an official offer letter with details of what the offer is and more info
