"Conditional" offer from York without information about the... well... conditions! Watch

    Yesterday, I got an e-mail from UCAS that one of the universities had responded to my application, so I logged in to Track and saw that York had given me a "conditional" offer. However, I haven't received any information as to how many points they actually want me to score in my IB exams! Could that mean they want me to get as many points as I am predicted? This would be ABSURD because I was predicted 45 (the top score), while the York website says they typically require 34 (?) points for my subject!

    This is the first offer I've received so far, so I don't know how they would normally communicate the result they expect from me - do they send e-mails? I am asking because I've heard my friends saying "I've got a conditional offer from Birmingham, they want me to score 38 points, etc.".

    If they have stated 34 on the website that is generally the minimum they require, and your offer is based on you getting this/above this.
    Generally all conditional offers are based on you gaining the minimum entry requirements on their website.

    If you look on the offer on Track it *should* say "...subject to achieving 36 points at IB" or whatever. If they have genuinely managed to miss this part, contact York and ask about the conditions. You might receive an email or letter from York telling you the conditions anyway, but it should still say them on Track.

    No way would they want 45 points, I think even Oxbridge offers tend to be around 42 points.

    Just to make sure, have you clicked the course code on UCAS track? At least for me this is where the conditions are. Universities generally send emails as well, although I haven't received anything from York on my offer yet either.

    York will send you a letter by post about this in which the conditions will be stated. Should come 1 or 2 days after they update on track.

    They may have forgotten to put it on UCAS, or maybe they don't put it on there because I remember from my TRACK that my conditional offers were not explained on track (i.e. the conditions weren't on there, only in the respective letters I got from the unis).

    OK, I did click on the course code. The conditions are 34 points overall with a 5 in Higher Level English (). Thank you.
