    My daughter has an conditionaloffer at Hereford college of arts and initially it came through at 80 ucas points. Very achievable for her she's on an extended level 3 diploma. It's now been updated saying she just needs a pass I've checked the points and it's equal to 48. Why would they drop it so low. She's got an interview coming up at Loughborough and falmouth . We're thinking that if they offer its going to be between 100 and 120 ucas points. She's predicted to get a high merit possible distinction. Wondering if she's setting her sights too low. Thing is she loves hereford and the others are a long way from home.

    Did Hereford interview her/ask for a portfolio?

    If so then it's likely that they're happy that she has the talent and skill to succeed on their course regardless of her grades

    Yes interview and portfolio.
    In that case I wouldn't worry - they've given her the equivalent of an unconditional offer (as long as she completes her current course) because they like her.

    Tariff points don't really mean much for most art schools - the more popular ones use higher tariff offers as a way to cut down on demand/numbers but even there they'll often accept people with little to no tariff points if their portfolio shows the right sort of promise.
