I have heard that universities in UK offer Conditional Admission to students. What is a Conditional Offer?
— Manhar Samarth
Universities in the UK offer admissions based on both Conditional and Unconditional offers. An unconditional offer is that you have already met the University requirements and your admission is secure. However, though academic requirements may have been fulfilled you may still need to fulfil other financial and administrative requirements. A conditional offer means you still need to meet the requirements – usually exam results. They could be a combination of grade, scores or subjects – as explained in the entry requirements. Entry requirements may be a combination of various things like: Qualifications, subjects and exam grades – usually A levels or similar, and often converted into UCAS Tariff points; your suitability/profile- your experiences and interests through your Resume and Statement of purpose. Sometimes an Admission Test or Interview may be taken to fulfil the Conditional Offer.
