    I've applied for an MA and received a conditional offer. Ive firmed the offer. What happens if I don't meet the conditions? Will I not be able to do the MA or will they still consider me?

    It depends what the offer was. If they said get a 1st and you get a 2.1, you could be on a sticky wicket. If they said get 68% in your undergrad and you got 67.8% then you stand a chance.

    It's pretty much like A levels near misses can get consideration, but only a) if there is space and then it's the nearest near miss that gets the benefit of the doubt until the course is filled. The only further challenge at PG is that it's easier to vire places, so if course A has 4 spaces and is considering near misses, it's much easier to allow course B which has 3 additional people who made their offer come and only offer one spare space on course A.
