    I applied to Brunel for BSc Accounting and their usual offer is 320 points from 3.5 A-level. But for some strange reason I got a conditional offer of 320 points from 4 A-levels, when I only do 3.5 A-levels.

    Is this some sort of mistake? Do i just leave it or ring up the uni and tell them and also ask if they can lower it to 3.5 A-levels but if they can also lower the 320 points requirements?

    Phone them and ask. Glasgow accidentally gave me an offer which said that I needed to get a B in Physics, when I don't do the subject. After emailing admissions, they amended it to not include the Physics requirement.

    Yeah, I would check with them about the number of qualifications that you are taking but I doubt they will reduce the points requirement :p:

    Whatever you do, don't just leave it. If your UCAS is correctly showing that are lined up for 3.5 A levels, then they need to be asked to check the offer and amend it accordingly. It's unlikely that they'll reduce the points requirement since what they've offered you is their standard rate - so why would they??
