The University of Reading makes a range of offers to best fit the different circumstances and experiences of our applicants.
We take a tailored approach to assessing each application to make the most appropriate offer, taking account of:
- whether you’ve already completed your A Levels (or equivalent) or are still studying
- the course you’ve applied for
- the grades you achieved at GCSE level
- your personal statement
- whether the course you’re applying for requires you to attend an interview.
We also recognise that predicted grades aren’t always an accurate reflection of potential, so we often consider giving aspirational offers to applicants who are predicted a couple of grades below our entry requirements. If you are in this position and interested in studying at the University of Reading, we would encourage you to apply.
This page is designed to give you information about the different types of offer that you might receive, depending on the eligibility criteria you meet. Don’t worry too much about trying to remember all this information though – if you receive an offer from us, we'll make it clear what the offer conditions are and what steps you need to take next.
