Hiya!

(So this is likely going to sound really arrogant and I completely apologise in advance, I'm not trying to be cocky or anything I'm just genuinely curious!)

During an open day I instantly really loved BCU and I knew that it would be my firm choice if they offered me a place. I applied with predicted ABB to a course with BBC entry requirements. I was really hoping to get an unconditional because of this but I have a conditional instead (over the moon about this still!). Okay so my question is:

Now I've firmed BCU, does anyone know how often uni's will change their offers to unconditional if they've been firmed? I'm reeeallly hoping this happens with me, but I feel like it only happens about 1% of the time so I thought I'd ask around

Thank you!

This doesn't exactly answer your question, but chances are if you miss your BCU offer by a grade or two, they'll still take you. It wouldn't surprise me at all.

Don't worry this whole conditional thing.

I was predicted AAA last year (I got those grades this August) and decided to apply to a university that also required BBC in order to fill up my 5th choice (I wasn't planning to go, anyway). I still got a BBC offer and they even asked me to upload my maths and English certificates!

It'll be conditional because you haven't sat your A-level finals yet. If you look at it from the point of view of the university you are predicted ABB, and I hope you achieve these scores, but for all they know you could get a UUU and if they give you an unconditional offer they'd be bound to have you studying at the University. So they won't give people unconditional offers based on results they haven't achieved yet to prevent that sort of thing happening.

Thank you! I've been told that (the whole dropping a grade thing) before. I'm very confident I'll get the grades, it would just relieve a lot of stress from now until August if it was unconditional! BCU have asked for my maths and English certificates too, it was the only one to do so, is that normal?

Nah, their decision on UCAS is final, I'm afraid. Congrats on your offer, I'm sure you will exceed that!

Asking for certificates is normal
They just want to make the process smoother once they receive your grades. They did the same with me.
