    No they gave you the offer on the basis of your predicted grades. They know people can preform badly in January and retake in June and so they make their final decision on results day in August.

    I don't think they know how you do in January? Of course, the grades you get in January will influence your overall grades so they could reject you if you don't meet your conditional offer..

    No they can't. Once the offers on UCAS, they can't withdraw it

    Just to expand on this, could a uni revoke your offer under any circumstances? Say if you dropped out of college after getting an unconditional, or got a criminal record or something? I've always wondered this...

    Your January results will not affect your offer. So long as you meet the conditions of your offer after you've finished your course, you conditional offer will become an unconditional place.

    If you've done badly in January, just put your head down and aim to rectify that in time for your summer exams.

    You'd have to declare a criminal record, depending on its relevancy I think the uni would be allowed to reconsider. Dropping out...well you'd think not, with an unconditional, but I guess you'd still have to tell them.

    I remember a thread awhile back where someone apparently phoned up their uni to ask if they had to do their exams because their offer was unconditional. They said that they wanted to go travelling etc. have a bit more like half a gap year for the last half of that year before they went to uni. Apparently, the offer was withdrawn, I can't guarantee its authenticity as I can't find it atm though.

    err what if the Uni that has given that offer, is one of the top Uni in the UK. Would they have the right to cancel the offer that they have made - after the terrible January Exams? Are they going to consider resits? - and would they look at the results of the first trial - before the resits?

    Two things yet unmentioned:

    They can if they suspect fraud on your application.
    They can if they do not accept retake students.

    Depends what the offer from the uni was? I know several people that were offered sandwiches but when it came to the crunch, no sandwiches. There were biscuits - oh there were biscuits! - but no sandwiches :no:

    it only says AAA on my 3 subjects (out of my 4s). there is nothing that says 'no resits' - so . . . is there still a chance of them canceling the offer?

    Highly unlikely. The universities will not know what you get in January, so what matters to them is what your final result is in August. The system is such that it allows resits, that is how A-levels work, and the universities have had to accept this (and the end result is that offer requirements have gone up over the years as people improve through resits).
