    Hello,

    Today (18th July) I received an email from UCAS saying there had been a change to one of my applications. Upon logging in I find MMU have made my offer unconditional firm. Is this some sort of mistake or..?

    What does this mean and how come they haven't waited until results day?

    So this means I am 'in' regardless of results on August 14th?

    If you are awaiting results on August 14th, then one of two things has happened:
    1. They have decided to take you regardless of what you get, or
    2. There has been a mistake.

    Of these two, a mistake is much more likely, but you can't know for sure, so call them on Monday morning and ask. Anyone on here would only be guessing.

    If you are studying A levels it is probably a mistake.
    If you are not studying a levels and are studying BTEC then it is not a mistake and you have your place no matter what.

    I am studying both BTEC and A-levels. My place was conditional on 280 UCAS points from 3 qualifications. The BTEC will have been enough to secure me the required UCAS points but will only count as 2 qualifications. I'll give MMU a call on Monday.

    Thanks all.

    Complicated! Possibly a mistake on the part of the data inputter, but I would think you are likely to be in. If you already have the right number of points, you could get an E in August and still have met the conditions.

    Well, if you have got the 280 UCAS points then you could score 0 on any other qualification and you're still in..?

    Congrats!

    The requirements on the UCAS search tool read

    You will need 240 UCAS Tariff points from 3 A levels (or their equivalent)
    (Though my official offer via UCAS states 280 UCAS points) The BTEC counts as 2 A levels, so I still need a grade in August to technically qualify.

    OK, well call to check, and though I haven't been through this situation (my offer wasn't UCAS points) the way it is worded suggests you don't need 3 A-Levels, that's just the maximum number of exams the points can come from. As long as you achieve the 240 points you're in. It's basically you exceeding your offer.
