    Hey there folks,

    I'm from Poland, during my last year of High School / Secondary School / whatever the English equivalent is and decided to apply for studies in the UK. My choices are: University of Aberdeen, University of Glasgow, University of Edinburgh (first choice), University of Dundee, London Metropolitan University. The only response I received so far is a request from University of Edinburgh for my predicted English Advanced Level grade. I'll take the final exam (called Matura here) in May from IT, English and Maths (all Advanced). Now here is my question. Are there any chancec at all that I could get an unconditional offer, just basing on personal statement, reference and predicted grades? I'm just too much hyped, waiting for this damned response Thanks guys!

    Unconditional offers are only usually sent out to those who have already completed their secondary education. Your EU status doesn't really come in to it.

    Am I right in thinking that the Polish Matura is similar in format to, say, the baccalaureate, in which you have to pass each one of a set of exams? (So, in your case you would have to pass all three of IT and English and Maths to pass your Matura.) If so, I suspect no university would be able to give you an unconditional offer because if you failed one of your exams, you would not pass your Matura and could not be admitted to university because you would effectively not have completed your secondary education.

    The UK system works differently in that students do not need to pass a specific set of exams to complete their secondary education and that is what enables universities to give them unconditional offers even if they have not yet done their A-levels.

    Good luck with your application.

    It's highly unlikely that you'll be offered an unconditional offer, seeing as you're still currently studying.

    An unconditional offer is usually presented to those who have achieved results that will get 'em into University.

    Best of luck!
