yeah said the same in my confirmation email but it also said at the end of that sub section that so long as you meet the criteria (being AAA i’m assuming) and cardiff is your firm, then they’ll see you september. So i wouldn’t worry about it just make sure you meet the AAA
Yeah I was confused at that as it seemed to contradict the whole section before? I'm sure it will be fine but I just know I will be nervous until the day my place is 100% confirmed hahah

In these circumstances, the University reserves the right to make an independent academic decision on offer holders and will allocate places in accordance with the School of Healthcare Sciences Oversubscription Policy on a fair and reasonable basis. The University will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from any inability or failure to admit you to the University as a result of oversubscription that is outside its reasonable control.
All applicants who meet entry criteria are scored by attending an Interview or meeting the set criteria on their personal statement and offers of study are then made based on these scores. It is this score that would be used in the event of oversubscription to a programme for applicants who meet the conditions of their offer. Utilising this score means that the academic and value based approaches are taken into account. Grades achieved and/or tariff may also be used as factors to differentiate between those with the same interview and/or personal statement score.
If you are not allocated a place on the fair and reasonable basis (as defined above) the University will:

Offer you the opportunity of deferring your place to the next available entry point OR;
Agree a place on an appropriate alternative course OR;
Support you in moving to another institution.

So it looks like your place still isn't confirmed even if you meet the conditions.. Still concerning me

i would have thought though that there’s less offers been given because of the high chance of people attaining the grades they need, so surely this has been taken into account by the universities?? i feel like this is included in the email as a ‘just in case’ so in the rare event it does happen, the university can’t be held responsible??

I don't think they did make less offers than usual. In my interview they said 600-700 were to be given out which lines up with previous years. I have emailed asking for more information about it and how likely it is that they wouldn't even be able to offer a deferred place.

Guys I need your opinion. I want to firm Cardiff but don't know when my Leicester and liverpool will come in but I'm going Cardiff regardless anyway I'm just curious to see what I did. Do you think I should withdraw and just firm Cardiff so I don't have to worry up grade inflation and such cos I have an unconditional as a gap year achieved grades student?
Thanks
