I recently got an unconditional offer from my firm choice and want to change it as I got higher grades than I predicted so am I able to go into adjustment on results day?

No, as adjustment is about exceeding your offer not your predicted grades. This is one reason why unis give out unconditional offers. The only way to find another place would be via clearing.

Although this isn't relevant to you, you only have 5 days to enter adjustment once your place is confirmed so you wouldn't be able to wait for results day if you have your results now.

Didn't mean 'Predicted' I meant the offer that the university said to get was A A B and I achieved A* A C (equivalent) So would I be able to go into adjustment or have I not exceeded the grades I meant to get?

If you've got an unconditional offer, the answer is still the same. You can't exceed it so you're not eligible. It doesn't matter what the offer was originally, you now can't exceed the conditions.

To be eligible for adjustment you have to meet all the conditions of your offer and exceed at least one, so if your conditions were AAB and you achieved A*AC then you're not eligible as you didn't at least meet the B grade.

So either way, you're not eligible, I'm sorry.

It'sokay no need to apologise, but they just recently gave me my unconditional offer yesterday and it was conditional before that. Does that change anything?

It doesn't really change anything as it doesn't sound like you have exceeded the conditions of your offer.

Did your offer become unconditional after the uni received your results?

Do you have the option to enter adjustment on your track page?

Yeah the offer became unconditional after they have received my results, and there is no current option for adjustment cause I heard it opens on results day but don't know if I will have that option..

Just to check, you say it became unconditional after the university got your results. When did you sit your A levels? Or are you saying you've done A levels when actually you've done a different qualification? If you've done a different qualification like IB or French Bac it is better if you tell us your actual offer and results as it might change the advice you are being given.

The button will be on your Track - it shows for everyone who has their firm place confirmed. However even if you click the button any university you contact will check your eligibility and decline you as you missed the B condition of your offer.
