    So I got an unconditional offer from the University of Nottingham given that I firm it. Since Nottingham was pretty much my top choice I am seriously considering firming it. So what does an unconditional offer mean basically? I am in my A2s currently and will appear for my A Levels in May 2017. I was really concerned about Economics since I haven't studied it all year. I also didn't give the AS exam. Say I get a U or E in Economics ie fail in it, will my unconditional offer be affected? Or will I still be accepted? Say a student gets 3Us. Will they still be accepted because the offer was unconditional.

    Yes, I believe you would be taken whatever you get if you have an unconditional. I have one from UEA and am considering taking it for that reason.

    As long as you still take the exams, it doesn't matter how well you do. Well done!

    As long as you sat all the exams they should take you, however I ve never come across a situation with a U in a subject before (even I scraped es doing exams off no sleep so I don't think you need to worry about that anyway)

    You would be accepted to uni, but you need to think about the future. If you drop out of uni and reapply you would need A Levels for that. Most graduate schemes ask for certain A Level grades, and other jobs may expect certain results. So the plan to do badly would have long running effects
