Universities aren’t allowed to give unconditional offers to applicants who are still studying their level 3 qualifications.

Do you think you can meet the conditions?

Which universities was that?

Seems like they are desperate if they’re breaking the rules on making unconditional offers to people who haven’t finished their A levels.

UCAS don’t stop it but it’s against the regulator rules to make unconditional offers to applicants who don’t already have level 3 qualifications.

Any university making these offers is
- desperate for student
- places their own finances above what is best for their applicants and students

(and therefore in my opinion best avoided).

Unconditional offers aren’t a good thing. There’s a whole bunch of research showing that those offers lead to lower level 3 results and increased chances of dropping out or getting a poor result in your degree.

Hi @shortbreaddog, congratulations on your offer! Don’t worry, we don’t make unconditional offers to anyone until they meet our entry requirements. When you get your results, as long as you meet our minimum entry requirements, your offer will automatically be changed to unconditional on UCAS. Hope this helps.

In the meantime, don’t forget to book your place at one of our offer holder days, to get to know more about your course and the University. It's a great opportunity to chat with current students and tutors, and meet other offer holders. The link to book your place will be in your offer email.

Let me know if you have any more questions 😊

You might want to speak to your college/school and ask them to write to both universities about this.
They've both signed up to https://www.universitiesuk.ac.uk/what-we-do/policy-and-research/publications/fair-admissions-code-practice which states "They should also avoid applying pressure through their offer making practices, including by avoiding the use of ‘conditional unconditional’ offers, restricting the use of unconditional offers to specific circumstances, and using incentives appropriately and transparently."
