    I have achieved 10 A*-A grades at GCSE, I achieved grades ABBB in AS level and have been predicted A*A*A for A Levels. I am applying to study computer science (Bsc) at:

    UCL - A*AA
    Kings - AAB
    Loughborough-ABB
    Surrey - ABB

    And one more university

    What are the chances of any of my places applied offering me an unconditional ( with a very good personal statement ) ?

    I'm sure one of them will give you an unconditional, the only thing is that you have applied to very good universities in which getting into is very competitive, so they might not want to give out many/any unconditional offers.

    Well, if you are expected to get the grades that the course requires (in your case you are predicted higher), then you are highly likely to get an offer, especially with a good PS The likelihood of an unconditional offer is a little more uncommon, however what many universities do is give you a conditional offer based on your grades, but they will give you an unconditional offer if you make that uni your firm choice.
    You have no chance getting an unconditional from Loughborough however, they do not make unconditional offers, it is their policy

    Universities that are pretty competitive ones don't usually give unconditional offers unless you have at least some of your grades already confirmed because they can't know if you will be able to achieve those predicted grades. If it's something lower rates and they generally have trouble filling up spaces, then they give unconditionals quite a lot

    I've received an unconditional if form from Nottingham with a similar profile to yours, and I know that surrey's been doing them this year so I'd think so however if you have a top choice remember not to be too swayed by any you might receive

    Thank you very much because I feel like if I believe I can get into universities such as Warwick I shouldn't limit myself by firming an unconditional from a university such as Surrey/Nottingham ( no offense to them they're great universities but I prefer Warwick ).
