    I received a reply from Coventry today for my application to do BEng in Automotive Engineering. On UCAS track their offer is ABB including maths and two other subjects yet they have sent me an e-mail saying:
    "Thank you for applying to Coventry University to study BEng - Automotive Engineering. I am delighted to say that we will be making you an offer of a place on your chosen course. I would now like to invite you to attend and participate in an Applicant Experience Day where we can further assess your skills and possibly make you an improved offer. "

    What does this mean? Thanks in advance

    It's an offer for an interview, where it seems if you impress them they will make you a more lenient offer.

    If Coventry are so desperate for students that they are bribing you in such a blatant way to go to their visit day, do you really want to go there?
