    For conditional offers they take into account your entire application - references, personal statement, GCSE grades and predicted grades. Generally if your predicted grades meet their criteria then you should get a conditional offer.

    For unconditional offers, all I know of is that Reading University has an 'Academic Excellence Scheme' where they look at your GCSE/predicted grades and if they're very high, will give you an unconditional because they want to ensure you go there. I think this would be similar for other universities. Basically the unconditional is a hook to get you to make that uni your firm choice.

    As above, it's a mixture of both, but specifically depends on the Uni
