    Hey guys,

    Not sure if this is a long shot but I wondered what you thought.

    My desired uni is quite a bit below my predicted grades. It's CCC entry and I'm predicted AAB. I really like the uni however and really want to go there, so don't need a lecture about aiming higher etc.

    What I wanted to enquire was the likelihood of receiving an unconditional offer, if having them as my firm? I've had a few friends in the past who have had much higher predicted grades than what was required on their course and they have been given unconditional offers, even for good uni's like Birmingham (I know they tend to do this a fair bit for students they want, if you firm them?).

    Any advice would be great!

    Many unis don't give out unconditional offers to anyone who doesn't already have their results. Some unis, like Birmingham, use unconditional offers as a marketing tool in order to persuade students to firm them when they otherwise wouldn't. This isn't always a good thing. Sometimes, unis will give you a higher conditional offer if you apply with higher predicted grades.

    Like everyone else, unfortunately you'll just have to wait and see. It might be worth posting in the uni's specific forum, and see if anyone got unconditional offers in your situation last year.
