Unconditional offer watch

    • Thread Starter

    I recently received an unconditional offer from Bournemouth but I haven't sat the rest of my exams yet or got my grades what does this mean?

    It means that you have the place whatever the outcome of your exams

    Hi, this is taken from the UCAS website. (The bold bit is the most important)

    Unconditional offers These mean you've already met the entry requirements, so the place is yours if you want it!

    But first check the offer to see if there's anything else you need to do. Even though you've already met the academic requirements, you might also need to get a DBS check, provide proof of your qualifications or meet some financial/medical requirements.

    By accepting an unconditional offer you are committing to go to that uni or college, so you can't make an insurance choice or be entered into Clearing. If you're taking exams, your results won't affect whether or not you get accepted.

    But, although your uni place won't be dependent on your grades, they'll probably still have an impact on your future employment. For example, graduate employers normally take A level and other qualifications into account when reviewing job applications, so it's important you take this into consideration when preparing for your exams. For more advice about what you need to consider when accepting an unconditional offer, read the UCAS blog.
