    Many unis only give unconditional offers if you already have your results.
    I have two of my a level results however I am sitting one a level this year. Does that mean it is unlikely that I could get an unconditional?

    Does this matter?

    Even if you get an unconditional, you'll still have to work at the same rate in order to achieve good A-Level results. A-Levels are still relevant in certain grad schemes at the initial selection stage.

    Universities don't give out unconditionals because they want you to have an easy ride, they just see you as a massive, ****ing pound sign oozing at every single pore with bucket loads of cash.

    Put it this way.

    I was predicted AAA (and got AAA this year) and applied to Salford (which wanted 120 UCAS pts) because I had no idea what to put down for my 5th option.

    I didn't get an unconditional, and instead, they asked me for photocopies of my GCSE English and Maths certificates.

    No one has the faintest idea as to whether or not you will get one.
