It depends when you receive your last offer. The earliest you need to reply by is 4th May, but if you get your last offer late (after March) then the reply date will be later.

As everyone has pointed out you'll get a lot of time to make the decision - please use it. Once you accept an unconditional offer it is complicated to reverse that decision if your circumstances change.

Wait until April at the earliest to make your decision official on UCAS Track.

Does it happen that a uni will change a conditional offer to unconditional? If so, when? Can it happen at any time?

If you get a conditional, then it will change to unconditional after your results day only (i.e. if you meet the offer/they decide to take u in anyway even if u don't). so it will not change at any time.
applicants with no qualifications pending (like me) or applicants with grades so high that even if they deteriorate, they still gonna make it-only these types get unconditional offers straight away.

It really depends what you mean by.

When unis give you an initial offer, they have the choice of giving a conditional offer or an unconditional offer. They can give out offers at any time, as long as it's before the reply deadline (which is May for applications received on time).
If a uni gives a conditional offer, they can specify what conditions they want. Usually, this is conditional on receiving certain grades in your exams. If so, you won't know if you have met this offer until results day - so your offer won't turn unconditional until results day (or maybe a couple of days later).
For some specific courses, though, offers can be conditional on other things. This might be things like providing proof of already achieved qualifications, or for some courses it can be things like a DBS check. If this is the case then your offer will become unconditional as soon as you have met those requirements - which you can do at any time.

I mean that if I have an offer from a uni, will they ever change the offer half way through the year to unconditional? maybe if other students on that course who have unconditionals decline their offers.

No. They would only do this if you have met the conditions, or if they have indicated that this will happen (some conditional offers are unconditional if made your firm, for example). But if you get a conditional offer then it's conditional on you meeting the conditions, and doesn't matter what others do.

I'm hoping to do biochemistry too, what kind of grades do you need to get an unconditional?

AS I understand, you are only eligible for Adjustment if you meet and exceed your offer, and if you accept an unconditional offer you are then locked into the that uni and can't go through Adjustment. But if your offer goes unconditional when the uni gets your results anyway, how does anyone ever get to use Adjustment?

Because your offer was conditional, and you met the conditions. You could exceed the conditions, because there were conditions there to exceed in the first place.

So what about these conditional offers which turn unconditional on being made Firm? I understood these rendered you ineligible for Adjustment. What is the difference between that and a conditional offer which gets turned unconditional with no warning just before results day?

You have to meet and exceed an offer to be eligible for Adjustment. If the offer is "put this as firm and it becomes unconditional" there's nothing to exceed there. You can't put it as extra enhanced super firm.

If an offer got turned unconditional before results day (which they don't tend to do anyway) then you would also be ineligible for Adjustment.

it depends from uni to uni. but biochem is one of those courses for which u will get considered no matter what as long as you are not more than 2 grades lower than what's required. I had exactly ABB and my first choice was Queen Mary and that's where I am headed to if all goes well (they required ABB btw). But I have friends who applied to QMUL, Reading and Royal Holloway for biochem with lower grades (ABC/BBB/BBC) and they got in. As a matter of fact, one of them was accepted to QM within 10 days. Plus Surrey required AAB, but I still got in. You need a good essay, good recommendations, plus grades which make you look like a possible fit for the course. Good O level grades can definitely help. I am not gonna lie, biochem is not like one of those courses where there is as much competition as that in law/medicine/CS and the likes. You will see this course cropping up in the clearing in most unis, so I think you should just go ahead and apply. But don't get me wrong or don't be put off by the "low demand"of the course-you can do loads of interesting stuffs (including earn loads if that's what you are worried about too). Besides doing biochem can also prep you for grad entry medicine or pharmacy in case u change your mind.

btw, i got an unconditional offer because when I applied I was already done with A levels and had no qualifications pending. In order to get an unconditional even with your A2 pending i.e. after AS, you already need to be 2-3 grades higher at least in your AS and also be predicted to achieve sth similar in A2 . like A*A*A* for a course that asks for AAB, sth like that.

My daughter got a conditional offer in November from a good uni & then received an unconditional offer from the same uni in january. I think once some uni's receive all their applications they then go through them & make unconditional offers to their best applicants. So it's worth waiting before confirming you're choice of uni.
