Hi guys!

I have just been offered a place at UofT for Studies in Mathematical and Physical Sciences

My offer states, "You have been admitted on the strength of your predicted results. The University reserves the right to withdraw this offer of admission if you do not maintain your current academic standing in each of your Advanced Level subjects, particularly in any of the courses required for your program of study."

My predicted grades for A-Level are A*A*A, does this mean I have to get those exact predicted grades? If not, by how many grades can I drop and still be admitted?

Hey! Congratulations on the offer!

I have also received an offer from UofT (for the faculty of Arts and Science) and I too got a similar response that was kind of ambiguous.

I went to an event in London a few weeks ago that talked about the uni, Toronto as a city and any queries that anyone had.

I asked, and I was told that basically as long as we don't fail, we still have the offer. Given that they have offered us places based on our predicted grades, they assume that we are academically able and will get those grades. So kind of unconditional in a sense, that is unless you flunk it.


Hope this was helpful! If you have any other questions please do ask me! The Toronto website has little information for international so I've kind of become an expert on the manner due to the number of questions I have asked

UoT admissions said the same thing to me :yy: if you meet their minimum requirement (which is pretty low in some cases) they will still let you matriculate. But of course, it's better if you get a score that is as close to your predicted as possible

AAA in English, Biology and Psychology.

I applied to Life Sciences which usually requires calculus but I did not take Maths AS. I think due to my GCSE maths mark they allowed me in, and I will probably have to take a supplementary calculus class to make up for not studying it after GCSE's.

Heyo, I'm so glad to have found this thread as I am currently in the same boat :')

I applied with my predicted A*A*A GCE A Levels and received a conditional offer to study Life Sciences at UTSG given that I "maintain my current academic standings". Really worried about not getting those exact grades T-T

So, I'd like to ask: did you manage to get your predicted grades? If not, what grades did you get and did they still let you in?

5 years late but I hope this finds you well
Thank you in advance

hey i got an offer at UTSG too with the same predicteds too, kinda worried. Looking around it looks like as long as we don’t have a shocker on results day i think we’re good. I hope this is the case because getting A*A*A in phy math and chem is easier said than done off topic but are you applying internationally? would love to talk to someone on the same wave

PQ - do you have any thoughts about these kinds of offers? They seem decidedly iffy to me. Very difficult for an applicant to make a decision not knowing how lenient the uni is implying that they’ll be.

Very iffy but I think quite common in North America because their consumer laws are different.
I think it’s a good idea to make sure anyone accepting these sorts of offers has a good plan B and a good plan C and D too.

I'd missed that it was in the North American subforum as I viewing on mobile and the breadcrumb trail doesn't display any more. Assumed it was Teeside or somesuch! Apologies

Can confirm this is how offers go in North America - mainly to do with a difference in education systems and the fact that their AP exams serve a slightly different purpose to our A-Levels.

Definitely a good idea to have a backup - even if you don't think you'll need it! I kept the UK as my backup even though I knew I wouldn't choose it over any US uni for exactly this reason.
