    I just finished all my exams and they all went well, but i'm not sure about maths. The uni i want to go to is Aston university and They want BBB, but with my maths i think i might have got BBC. What i was wondering is do you think i will get a place at uni even though i was a grade off?

    If it's a less subscribed course then perhaps they'll let you in as you would be a "near miss" candidate.

    It can and does happen but it cannot be garenteed. It all depends on the demand for the course and it's the university's decision at the end of the day. You may have done better than you thought and even if you're still worried, look at clearing options. Nearer the time a lot of unis will release lists of courses and the grades for clearing. Make lists of the unis to contact them. I did this before results day and it made me feel like I had slightly more control of the situation!
    But for now, there's not much you can do! Just enjoy your summer as best you can! Good luck with results!!!

    Depending on the course, you might or might not. Often universities will look at your grades and decide whether or not you still will be suitable for their course. You shouldn't worry as I have seen people with ABD's get in to a university that required ABB or BBB.

    Hey guys, little help here if you all wouldn't mind. I received the results yesterday (I'm an Irish student that sat Irish Leaving Certificate). Added up my points and converted to the UCAS points system, however I'm 14 points short of my provisional offer of Ophthalmic Dispensing from Anglia Ruskin Cambridge! What should I do? Will I still get in? Cheers!
