Has anyone ever got an UNCONDITIONAL offer when they are applying in their A2 year... ie. only got AS levels so far? When the course requirments are specific grades at A2. Was wondering if universities would ever do this for exceptional candidates?

I think it happens more at universitys which are desperate for people o when a good candidate applys they try to entice them, unless it oxford. Also its often people who alredy have theier qualifications

One of my friends got an unconditional offer from Salford to read health science.

Possibly, though he is an intelligent guy. He's predicted double the points of their standard offer and applied there as insurance.

If he already has AS levels at high grades, then his offer is probably unconditional because he has already met their points requirement - eg if he got AAAA at AS, that's 240 points, which is equal (in points value) to CCC at A2.

No, he hadn't met their typical offer yet, but he said health science is a very undersubscribed course at most unis, so that may be why he got an unconditional offer.

A friend of mine received a single E offer for Law at St. Mary's of London (what that is im not exactly sure...) so im assuming she is able to fail 2 of her A-levels and still get in.

She could therefore quit school today (A-level year) and surpass their requirements by scratching her right nostril and watching Kilroy from now until october.

Ah - if only oxford were so generous....

One of my mates has an unconditional offer from Brunel. Another has an unconditional from East London to read Human Biology, and he didn't even apply to it. He's turning East London down as he's got into Cambridge to do Medicine.
