offer is to be made without interview. Such an offer should
only be issued when a candidate has met all academic and
non-academic requirements based on the selection criteria agreed
for the programme.
1.104. C - Conditional

called to attend for an interview as per the selection criteria
agreed for the programme. After the interview the record must
be re-graded U, C or R.
1.106. Under the UCAS
scheme, applications received at UCAS by the closing date (15
January or 24th March for Art & Design Courses) must
all be given equal consideration. In practice, this means that a
programme must not run out of offers prior to receiving the last of
the on-time applications received at UCAS.
