Conditional offers

I was just wondering if you could help me understand the process which happens when you have been holding a conditional offer and you then achieve your grades. Does the offer then change to an unconditional offer? Do you have to fill out a whole new set of paperwork because your offer type has changed?

Hello Joanna,

If you are not taking A levels or other UK secondary school qualifications, you should inform your CF and CI universities as soon as your results are known. This will enable the universities to confirm with UCAS your status as a confirmed acceptance.

If you are taking A levels, universities will receive the results direct and will give you a decision on Results Day.

After your status has been confirmed through UCAS, there will be admin to complete for the university that has accepted you related to accommodation, fees etc. There will be nothing more from UCAS (except the confirmation email).

Hope this answers your question!
