    I phoned dundee uni who this is mainly about today and the person i need to speak to isn't there till monday, damn.

    Was wondering... I've got a conditional to get ABBB.
    I have a B already, so does that mean that I only need to get ABB? or do they want ABBB plus the B i already have? I was wondering why they have upped this to an A, if that's because they would consider the B i already have. I haven't sat it over multiple sittings or anything so it should be ok?

    Agh I don't want to not phone and ask on monday but thought maybe you guys may know.

    Im pretty sure it will include the B you already have. The offer you get given is what you need to have on results day, so therefore you just need to get ABB

    I hope i have helped!

    Well if you entered it on your UCAS, then they know you already have a B. So I'd say they want ABBB.

    It should actually say on track something like "to be attained in 2011", thus meaning this year's results.

    Hm. track says-
    Decision
    Conditional view decision letter

    Conditions
    This offer is subject to you obtaining

    Scottish Qualifications Authority Higher
    Grades ABBB.

    Thing is , my UWS one says-
    Decision
    Conditional view decision letter

    Conditions
    This offer is subject to you obtaining
    From 2011 examinations
    Scottish Qualifications Authority Higher
    Grade C - English
    and
    Psychology
    and
    1 further subject.

    So...because 1st offer doesnt say from this year, it doesnt mean that?

    The only way to know for sure is to phone the university, but it would make no real sense for a conditional to factor in your previous results like that. If they meant "ABBB including a B that you already have"... well, that would be rather convoluted... surely they would have just made your offer ABB, lol. You most likely (by miles) need to get ABBB this year.

    But yeah, get on da phone.
