    After originally receiving a conditional offer of BBC to study English at Coventry, I received an email the other day to say that if I made them my firm choice I would receive an unconditional offer. This is due to my "past qualification record, your predicted performance in your pending qualifications and your potential to be an excellent undergraduate student." I am by no means a high achieving student so I was wondering if anybody else had received this offer?

    This is just fancy marketing speak employed by Coventry to flatter you.

    They just want you to firm them so you are effectively locked in on results day meaning you won't be able to use UCAS Adjustment. It also means if you want to enter Clearing, you'll have to jump through endless hoops through Coventry's admissions department to be released.
