    hi guys got my first uni offer today from UWE- Building Surveying was well chuffed until i seen the conditions:

    A minimum of 320 UCAS Tariff points from the BTEC National (Which is understandable)

    Diploma and a pass at Level 3 in Functional Skills Communication and Application of Number. (BUT WHAT? ok i didnt put Level 3 functional skills as pending or anywhere on my application but yet they want it? I have adult literacy and adult numeracy level 2 which they said they will accept several times on the telephone and even on email - evidence u see but they want functional skills level 3 which nowhere in Birmingham offers it and not even the college i go offers it, so what shall i do?)

    Email or ring them ASAP. I had something weird on one of my offers and it was just a mistake. Not saying it will be the same for you, but it is really worth enquiring.

    Make sure you tell them then, if you've got email 'proof' you might be in a better position too
