Hi,

I have applied to Cambridge(A*A*A), Imperial(A*A*A), Kings(AAB), UCL(AAA).

Those are the typical offers for subject I am applying for. My predicted grades are 4 A*s. Is there a chance of getting an unconditional offer from Either Kings or UCL possibly?

None of your choices make unconditional offers based on predicted grades as far as I know.

Neither UCL nor KCL make unconditional offers unless you have acheived the entry requirements.

It's worth noting of the Russell Group universities only Birmingham and Nottingham regularly use "Unconditional if Firm" offers - indeed about a third of Nottingham's offers are such.

Although York has joined them this year with a small pilot launch of UiF offers - only about 2% were such.

Edit to update: also Queen Mary (QMUL) have a Outstanding Potential Award for some courses. As a result about 2% of their offers are UiF.

I had an unconditional offer for King's, it was the only university I had applied to because I was certain I wanted to study there (maybe this factored in my UO). My GCSE grades were good (A*s) and my AS grades were good too (As) so my predicted grades were quite high and I did A LOT of extra curricular activities...

I got my unconditional based on predicted grades (I think) but I know a few people who got this offer based on their CV, and how much relevant work experience they had done for the course.
