Du­bi­ous uni of­fers

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

A RECORD one in four univer­sity ap­pli­cants were given a con­tro­ver­sial “con­di­tional un­con­di­tional” of­fer this year, of­fi­cial fig­ures show.

De­spite a sig­nif­i­cant hike in these of­fers, would-be stu­dents are now less likely to ac­cept one, ac­cord­ing to data from ad­mis­sions ser­vice Ucas.

There has been a grow­ing back­lash against the use of “con­di­tional un­con­di­tional” of­fers – in which a stu­dent is given a guar­an­teed univer­sity place, if they make the in­sti­tu­tion their firm first choice.
