    So I applied for pharmacy (firm) and pharmaceutical chemistry (insurance) at huddersfield. On results day morning i checked on track and i was accepted into insurance course, but it didn't say anything about pharmacy.
    After i got my results, it then said I had been accepted into pharmacy. The offer was ABB but i got BBB and Dist* and they still accepted me. It said on track "unconditional offer (firmly accepted)".

    But it was so surreal and too good to be true that i had to ring twice to make sure I had got on. So my question is;
    Is it possible that the university can withdraw their offer due to various reasons (mistake, oversubscribed etc.) and end up taking my offer away from me? Because I would not want that to happen!
    Also does it automatically accept my firm choice?

    Thanks for any feedback

    Once a University has given you and unconditional offer they cannot withdraw it even if its over subscribed

    Haha! I know this feeling, I got my firm at Newcastle for Chemistry with an offer of AAB, but actually achieved BBCC, I was in shock for a good few hours! But, especially with science A levels which I assume you took, they can be more lenient and in some cases they give higher offers then they expect you to achieve.

    If it says unconditional offer (firmly accepted) basically, you're in; the only reason otherwise can be medical or police related, it says it on the track website They've given you a place, they can't take it away from you so don't worry!

    Hope this helps

    I had a similar experience; I got BCC and Keele gave me an offer, even though they wanted ABB.

    I think you'll have to ring up the university and tell them what you have decided to do my brother

    Thanks pal. I have bragged about it so much to my family and friends as im the first one to do pharmacy in my family. It would be such a par if they withdrew my offer or told me that it was a mistake haha.
    And yep, theres no medical or police problem im a law abiding citizen. Thanks for that mate, has helped a lot

    BBB + distinction... that sounds about right though? because not only did you do more than the bare minimum of 3 A-levels, (which generally means that they lower the grade of each to account for you doing more work, so where you may need AAA they also accept AABB because 2B's is as good as one A)
    but also surely your distinction is the equivalent to getting an A/A* since it's the highest result you could have achieved? so really you have nothing to even be surprised about because clearly you are as intelligent as they wanted you to be

    Incredibly rare and rarer still that they own up to it. Most universities would take it on the chin, rather than risk the adverse publicity of withdrawing an offer. You tend only to see it when they have made numerous mistaken offers.
