    i got an email saying to check my track this morning so i have and it says
    • Congratulations! Your place at [uni] for [course name] has been confirmed.

    and that i should receive details from the uni on what to do next, but what exactly does this mean? it was a conditional offer so i needed to meet some requirements, but its only july 17th and my results day isn't for another month or so and im confused. is this just a late notification saying that ive accepted the offer? im not sure how they would even know if i'd met my requirements yet.
    (this may seem like a stupid thing to be asking, but i want to be sure, and not get ahead of myself)

    EDIT: nevermind! apparently my offer changed to an unconditional so???? yay!!

    Isn't that what they send you when you've met your conditions? That's a bit strange for an A-Level student... You didn't do IB right?

    Unis get your results a few days before results day, so it's probably just a mistake

    Sometimes uni's will change your offer to unconditional, which is what happened to me, especially if there aren't tons of people applying to your course. If it says your place is confirmed I think you've now got an unconditional!

    You could always send an email to the university to check?

    Your conditional offer will automatically change to an unconditional when you meet your conditions, so if UCAS thinks you've met your conditions you would see that anyway. That doesn't mean you have got an unconditional, although I hope you have

    If a university makes your place unconditional before the 19 July then you aren't eligible to use adjustment if you do well in your exams.

    Courses that are desperate for students are those that will use this tactic to maximise student numbers regardless of how they do in their exams. You could well end up being taught alongside people with qualifications/grades WELL below the normal entry requirements.

    If that's the case and you do better than expected simply withdraw your application and reapply next year.

    It's possible for OP (or anyone else in that situation) to ask the university concerned to place them into clearing to look for a place elsewhere - it's just a lot more hassle for the applicant than using adjustment (and the university concerned can drag their heels for a few days while clearing places are filled).

    I would be wary of any university that behaves like this - they place their own financial wellbeing above the benefit for individual students and the standards required for their courses.

    It's poor that a university would resort to such tactics. It's an issue how easily they can prey on the young and vulnerable.
