    Hi,
    I am considering firming Greenwich but worried that I may achieve about 2 grades below the requirements. I haven't seen anyone get an unconditional, I was wondering if anyone has got one prior to A level results?

    Unconditional offers are nearly always given to people who have already completed their A levels, so no, you are unlikely to meet anyone who was given one prior to receiving their results.

    I got an unconditional before finishing my A2sbut they are not the norm in any way. Usually students only get them if their predicted are quite a bit above the entry requirement and/or they seem to be an excellent student

    No, genuine unconditional offers (meaning an offer without any conditions attached) are still very rare for people who haven't completed their A levels. The type of (faux) unconditional offers which are becoming common are ones where a university says we'll give you an unconditional offer if you firm us.

    but its never normally a university at the top of your target range is it? so your always effectively committing to accepting less.
