What Uni & what course?

Often Some less regarded unis pump up their entry requirements to get students in. Hence looking at their official requirement or offer is meaningless. For example if they say AAB but take CCC on results day, I could well see them offering a student whos predicted AAB an unconditional in an attempt to get them to come.

Without more information its very hard to say, but lots of unis do this to gain students out of their league.
It’s the University of Central Lancashire for TESOL and Chinese the conditional offer was 104 Ucas points which is what I was predicted anyway if that helps aaa I really hope its not a mistake because it’s my favourite uni aha

I suspect it not a mistake, Unis use undergrads as a revenue source hence undersubscribed to unis, use unconditional offers in an attempt to boost their intake.

This course at UCLan has an average applicant getting UCAS 96 points, hence the actual grade requirements are probably around 90ish UCAS points, so you surpass their real requirements.

Congrats! if it is your favourite, take this a huge confidence boost. (I would say, you can still go visit all the unis again, and don't let the offer requirements decide where you go to uni, pick a favourite and then get the grades after the fact!)

So 104 ucas points isn’t their ACTUAL entry requirements? That’s so strange why not just put the real one on the website😂

Its what they say, Its a very common game played nowadays, completely deceiving applicants and many schools arent up to scratch when it comes to advising students. I recommend checking Unistats or which for what is a realistic requirment. Unis do not have to take students who do not meet their offer, but every year lots of unis just completely ignore their advertised tariff and do something different in august.

If it's where you definitely wanted to go, congrats.

For anyone else I would recommend that they at least attend open days before making any decisions. You had months to decide!

Have you checked the letter that comes along with the offer? That might explain further.
