    Hi!
    So I'm on a gap year right now but I finished college last year with three A Levels: two Bs and a C. I've applied to do Creative Writing at LJMU. The UCAS requirement for this course is 260 points so, at 280 points, I've met those requirements. I applied before the deadline, did everything I had to do, and they did make me an offer, but it's a conditional one. I have no idea what it is conditional on, as I've already met the entry requirements and selected it as my firm decision.
    Now that September is getting nearer, I'm starting to worry that I haven't got a place. Can anyone explain what might be going on here? I'm probably stressing over nothing, but I'd really appreciate it if anyone could reassure me that I've not missed something out. Will my place be confirmed once results day is passed, even though I'm not waiting on any results?
    Thanks for any help you can give me!

    The only advice I can offer would be to call them. Don't email, that could take ages.

    Agreed, just give them a call, do that now! Lol, I started emailing my uni two weeks after getting my results. You need to give them a push sometimes.

    On UCAS track, when you click on the course code, what does it say? That's where they write down the conditions that are attached to your offer.

    If you've met everything that it says there, then phone them up.

    Hey!

    I gave them a call and they basically told me that I shouldn't worry, sometimes the unis just don't update the offers until after results day, and there's no reason my offer won't be confirmed since I've met all the requirements set out. I might still give LJMU a call directly, just to triple check and put my mind completely at ease.

    Thanks for the help, guys!
