unconditional offer/pending exam watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have an unconditional offer for 2006 entry having completed my Alevels last year. On my UCAS form I stated that I intended to take an AEA in English this July. I was asked about it briefly in the interview, but the university have never (to my knowledge) asked for AEA's as part of their offer requirements. I've already accepted their offer both via track and the paper UCAS form. However, I'll no longer be able to take the AEA exam and I haven't officially been entered for it anyway. Do I still need to contact the university about this even though my offer is unconditional? Do I need to contact UCAS about this too - is there any point changing my info online now?

    Thanks for any response

    lol...i dont think u need to contact your uni coz its already an unconditional offer, and they didnt say any requirement of that english course.

    hehe....chill out

    You should contact the uni.

    The offer is unconditional, but the information stated on your form has to be valid. You've changed your exams, so they can change their offer if they want (but there'd be no point, as there won't be anything to make it conditional on!)

    As far as I was told at college, if your offer does not include the AEA, you do not need to inform your university.

    Thus, I was doing AEA English, but (after seeing it was on the same day as my Politics exam for 3 hours) I decided against it. This does seem to diverge from what is stated on the UCAS website regarding any changing information. (See the FAQ on the UCAS site)

    Yes you do need to inform them. Your offer is based on the AEA, regardless of if the grade mattered or not - its based on the fatc you will take it.

    Inform them for formality's sake. I seriously doubt they're retract the offer or make it condtional pending results of X exam though.
