Un/conditional offers during coronavirus

Apr 2020

What do I do if I've been given unconditional and conditional offers for uni?


Universities won't be making any new unconditional offers or amending any current conditional offers for the time being (at the moment, until May). This is so they don't put extra pressure on students making their university choices, giving them extra time to carefully think about what they want. If you've already been given a conditional offer, this will still become unconditional when you meet the requirements (expected grades on results day). If you've already accepted an unconditional offer, this will not be affected and will stay the same.
