Conditional offers sixth form watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello everyone,

    I am currently in year 11 and I am not sure if I want to move school or not for sixth form but I applied to 2 other sixth forms just in case I want to move in the future. So I have now got a conditional offer for one of these schools and I still don't know if I want to go there or not but they sent me an email asking me to go there next week to 'accept the conditional offer'.I know that having a conditional offer means that I would get a place depending on my GCSE results,but if I accepted the offer now would that mean that if I got the right results, I would have to go to that school next year or would I have the option to decide later that I don't want to go there?

    Thanks in advance and sorry for all that writing, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    No, usually schools do it to either try and convince you to come with them (although of course nothing is decided until results day) OR it's because they have alot of people applying for places on the course you want and so if you 'accept the offer' they can guarantee you a place on the course if you choose to go there rather than lingering around the idea of going there, not accepting the offer and then someone else will take your place and you won't be able to go there at all, if that makes sense
