    I'm applying for Uni this year and I've received an Unconditional offer for one of my choices- despite being really happy, I'm confused.
    I thought unconditional were for students who have already achieved their grades and meet the requirements, I haven't met their entrance criteria, so why have they given me this offer?

    (I need reassurance that this isn't a mistake on the uni or UCAS's behalf mostly )

    Any thoughts are welcome!

    Some unis (Birmingham, Leicester, and UEA among others) have started making unconditionals to applicants yet to sit their A2's as a means to attract people they consider to be good students. If you really want to study there it's good news. If you would prefer another uni, then don't get rushed into accepting the unconditional offer, particularly if it only becomes unconditional if you make it your firm.
