Yes, they do. Yes they have. I didn't get one myself but they do make EE offers, and not very rarely either. Certain colleges give more - Clare for example.
what as in 2 E grades for your a-levels?!

Yeah, it's called a matriculation offer. They work you damned hard once you get there though.

Its basically unconditional but i think the EE bit comes from the lowest standard allowed at the uni.

Yeah, I received an EEE offer to study medicine at Christ's - which I am now doing. EE/EEE offers are there I think to try and attrsct the best candidates - give them a challenge to try and go for, and also to relieve some of the pressure on A-Level results so you can do extra exams like AEA or STEP instead and read around your subject more. Although the offer is EE/EEE I have not met anybody at Christ's who having been offered a so called matriculation offer did not get all As at A-Level. Christ's offer about a third of places on these offers but I'm not sure if other colleges do. I heard vague rumours about Peterhouse giving out one or two - though I am not certain. I think a couple of colleges at Oxford gave them out a few years ago but I'm not sure if they still do. Good luck if you want to try and get one, though as long as you have good A/S scores they're not too hard to get.

It's a policy of Christ's, I'm not entirely sure why they do it... but a fairly large proportion of their offers are EE. Most offers at Cambridge as a whole are AAA (or AAB for some Arts), however, so it doesn't mean they don't want you if you get AAA [I got an AAA offer so it can't be that bad]

I don't think Clare makes that many, despite what people above have said. Christ's is the one most known for it, and other colleges may make them if they really like someone, but most people have AAA offers.
