    I have heard of many cases where universities that had made a conditional offer to students still made them an unconditional offer afterwards if they had scored lower than the required scores of the initial offers. Is there any specific university that has a reputation for being flexible in such a manner?

    There is no answer to this. It depends on how many people in that cycle meet their offers - if loads don't meet their offers, they'll drop the entry requirements a bit. Obviously if almost everyone meets their offers, they'll be less likely to drop their requirements. It obviously depends which University it is too as it would make sense that Oxford wouldn't drop their entry grades, but it would make sense for somewhere such as London Met would.

    As the previous poster has explained, whilst some Unis, on some courses, may still let you in if you only just miss the offer, but trying to predict this likelihood in advance of Results Day is pointless. Do not rely on it as a way of getting a place at University.
