    Question Upon obtaining

    Hi,

    1)Is this sentence correct:

    I was made an offer from Liverpool University 'upon' obtaining 300 points from 3 A levels


    Is upon used correctly in this sentence or shoud I replace it with another word?


    2) I contacted the other university 'from which I am holding an offer'...

    Is it correct to say 'from which I am holding an offer'?



    Many Thanks

    1 'upon obtaining' would mean 'when I obtained': Upon obtaining my driver's licence, I drove everywhere.

    Rather, say "I was made an offer from Liverpool University dependent on 300 points from 3 A levels"

    2 Either for or from
