I got an unconditional at university recently which i accepted. After getting my required grades in college, even though i havent finished the year yet, im currently going to class and waiting around for the year to end. I got offered some work for my dads friends recently which i decided to take on due to it having somewhat reasonable pay which i could use for university to help me out, and also due to there not really being much point in me attending college i thought it wouldnt matter that i wasnt attending, although recently i found out my teacher has tried to phone my university to get them to change the unconditional offer to conditional, which they said they wont do but they will monitor my attendance and work, i plan to start attending now to not take any risks but could this have actually happened and messed up my university chances, i thought unconditional meant you were in no matter what happened in the year?

Yes it's more than possible. This has been discussed many times before. Unconditional doesn't mean you can drop out of college.

The unconditional offer was based on your predicted grades, PS and reference. If the college thinks that the reference they gave has subsequently proved misleading (for example, in your situation, if they had commented on your excellent attendance record and commitment to study), then they may feel strongly enough to contact the uni to correct it. The uni can then decide whether they wish to act on that information, by either amending your offer to a conditional or withdrawing it altogether.
An unconditional offer isn't a signal that you can just give up on A Levels. Unis don't want people who can only be bothered with study when it suits them.

There has been a lot of issues recently with universities dishing out unconditional offers like sweets. It often leads to students slacking off, and therefore it ruins the reputation of an educational institution. It is quite a worrying phenomenon, because it's all about money now.
