    Hey everyone, I recently reapplied for uni through ucas and have got conditional offers at several unis, but on the ucas decision/offer letter from plymouth it doesnt ask for any specific grades or points for the course, it merely says...

    "This offer is subject to you obtaining
    Receipt of copies of certificates to confirm the qualifications listed in section 5a of your UCAS application
    Please send results to the institution Admissions Office"

    Im a little puzzled as to what this actually means, I thought if a university gave you a conditional offer they wanted you to obtain a certain set of grades, and that an unconditional offer meant that you had pretty much met the conditions of the offer already. Does this mean its technically an unconditional offer or....?

    Does anyone know if 'section 5a' is purely just the A-level certificates, or whether that includes the GCSE ones as well? I have got all the certificates I just need to know which ones to send off.

    Thankyouu

    ......are you taking exams in the summer?
    If so, are you SURE you didn't enter your AS levels as full A-levels?

    Because this sounds like an unconditional, but you seem surprised to get it.

    I would ring them and check - it may be an admin error that they've forgotten to fill in the requirements. If it was truly unconditional, it would usually say so.
