So, I'm slightly confused, as the title of the topic says, I was offered a conditional offer from a university, however I was told in the same email, if I accept their offer they'd make it unconditional after 14 days. There was nothing in the attached Terms & Conditions about a time limit to make them a firm choice, so is this not the same as just an unconditional? Whats the difference between this and just saying unconditional as I'm confused, thanks!
Your unconditional offer requires you to make them your firm choice (this is often difficult to get out of once you have accepted) the other type of unconditional offer is when it's unconditional but they do not need to be the applicants firm.
It means that if you choose them as your firm choice over the other unis, your offer will be unconditional rather than you having to get the grades required for a conditional offer. You can accept this whenever, the 14 day deadline is for them to update UCAS not for you to accept it
its tempting, but dont firm it too fast. i had the same kind of offer from birmingham and i was deadset on going there bc i was 100% convinced i wasnt gonna get the grades to go to my actual first choice uni. but then i went on an open day and decided real fast to set my ambitions higher lmao
