    Sorry, I'm familiar with the UK system, from Ireland.
    On UCL website it says for my course (NatSci) that their Irish minimum entry is A1A1A1A2 and 2 passes. Yet I got an offer with conditions A1A1A1A1 with 2 passes.
    Is this normal practice is or is something fishy aloof?

    They can offer what they like. It's up to them. It's their club, their rules. The offers listed are 'typical' offers and it's all to do with supply and demand and how much they like your application. In addition, where a range of grades is specified, the lower one is for contextual offers to people with specific disadvantages, or who have a combination of subjects the university particularly wants to attract.

    The listed offer is what they tend to offer under normal conditions so like there is a "normal" amount of applicants.
