Understanding your offer

Information for applicants with US qualifications who have received a conditional offer

If you have received a conditional offer, then we require official evidence that you have met these conditions by 31 August in the academic year that you submitted your application, or within 10 days of publication, whichever is earliest. 

Test Scores

If your offer asks for further test scores, we are looking for you to achieve further scores in addition to those that you have listed on your application. The scores you have listed may be below our entry requirements, not be in the correct subjects, or due to competitive selection do not meet the higher grades required. 

If you have not listed any test scores on your application but have been made a conditional offer, you may be able to use some scores you have already achieved if they meet the requirements of the offer. You should provide us with these scores as soon as possible so that we can advise what outstanding conditions you need to meet. 

We do not accept AP Research 

We do not accept AP Studio Art (Art and Design, 2-D, 3-D, or Drawing) for degrees other than our studio based Art and Design degrees. 

Contrasting subjects

A combination of test scores, including any previous SAT Subject Tests, are acceptable as long as they are in different subjects. We deem some subjects as too similar and therefore will only count them once. To meet the conditions of your offer we require a good breadth of contrasting subjects including humanities subjects. 

The following AP subjects are considered too similar and are only counted once:

  • AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC  and AP Precalculus
  • AP Computer Science A and AP Computer Science Principles 
  • AP Physics 1 Algebra based, AP Physics 2: Algebra based, AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism and AP Physics: Mechanics

The following subjects are considered as distinct subjects and can be individually counted: 

  • AP Macroeconomics and AP Microeconomics 
  • AP European History, AP United States History and AP World History 
  • AP Language and Culture and AP Literature and Culture

​​​​​​​If you have been made an offer for AP test scores but you attend a school that does not teach an AP curriculum, please refer to the ‘Minimum entry requirements – Applicants who do not have access to APs’ section of our Entry requirements webpage for further information and contact us to discuss your situation.

Sending your test scores

If you have taken examinations through the College Board or ACT you must make your scores available to us. We cannot accept score reports that you have emailed to us or uploaded yourself. If you are still to sit any College Board exams, please ensure that you have listed us on your answer sheet as an institution that should receive your results.

You must send these scores as soon as possible to avoid any delays in confirming your place or issuing your CAS.

Your application will be incomplete until we have received all required verified test scores.
