A small number of applicants each year receive an unconditional offer. This is an offer of a place on your chosen course with no conditions or requirements. For example, if you have taken a break between leaving school or college and are applying to university then you will already know your A-level grades when you apply, and so will we, enabling us to make you an unconditional offer.
If your application form is exceptionally impressive, we may make you an unconditional offer based on your predicted grades. We will take into account all of the information available to us, including your personal statement, your teacher’s reference and your GCSE results to assess your application.
If we make you an unconditional offer ahead of your A-levels, that demonstrates our confidence that you have the necessary qualities to excel on one of our degrees. Without any concern about reaching certain grades, you will be able to focus on achieving excellent A-level results that will be an indicator for prospective employers when you start applying for jobs. The fact that you received an unconditional offer will also look pretty good on your CV!
Responding to an unconditional offer
You are not expected to accept your unconditional offer straight away. With the UCAS system, it is actually not possible to make your decisions on UCAS Track until you have received responses back from all the institutions you have applied to.
We do hope that you will make Leicester your firm choice and would very much like the opportunity to meet you at one of our UCAS Offer Holder Days, running from February – April.
