Does the personal statement persuade universities to give a conditional offer more than the actual grades?
I mean my grades are decent and aren't that far off from the entry requirements but my personal statment is looking good.

A personal statement is to show universities that you are interested in the course you are applying for. You are basically trying to sell yourself. The universities are given your predicted grades and from the personal statement and predicted grades they either give you a conditional offer, or don't. If you don't meet the grade requirements when results day comes around in August then you will not get in.
Some university courses offer unconditional offers but that doesn't happen often.
