    so i got my results today, i needed 38 and i only got 32 for KCL LLB ( i missed Bristol as well they wanted 37)

    I got 7,6,5 in my HL history, english and econ and 5,3,4 in math sl, chem and japanese (how did i get a 3 in chem wtffff)

    so yeah, my shot as KCL has pretty much failed right ?

    im thinking of applying for resits, but i dont know much about them...do they take place in november and are released before UCAS application days ? and do you think KCL will look down on someone whos retaken 3 subjects ??? i really wanna go there and i have no idea wtf to do....
    please help !

    your final result seems to be way lower than your predicted grades (considering you have an offer from KCL), which is making me a little nervous. Maybe you can ask for remarks?? i read on one of these posts somewhere that grades often change when sent for remarks.
    Be careful though, marks can go up OR down this year, so make sure you're on the higher end of the boundary.

    You can resit exams. All in all you have three sessions, i.e. you've used up one now so you still have two chances to resit. You don't have to resit all exams (they don't even offer all the subjects in November), but you can pick only certain subjects.

    Talk to your IB coordinator, their information will probably be more reliable than what people here on TSR say.

    can I just say that i know how you feel and I know it doesnt help, but this tiem last year I missed my LSE and UCL offer by one point (37). Instead of enquiring I immediately deleted my application witin one hour and took a gap year. It was the best ting I ever did and now Im going to Durham to study a course that needs 38 points to get on it. Taking a gap was the best thing and although I was lined up to do resits in November because I was so disapointed, I didnt go to them because I thought they would be a waste.

    Good luck in deciding what you want to do but if I were you Id negotiate rather than resiting, because if you take a gap year youll be so busy having an amazing time that you wont think about the exams! good luck with your decsion

    Got my results yesterday and was really surprised with them I was predicted 39 but got 41 and exceeded my Imperial offer for Chemistry!
    Chemistry HL - 7
    Maths HL - 6
    Biology HL -6
    History SL - 7
    French SL - 6
    English SL - 6
    (EE - A, TOK - B) - 3

    Still annoyed with Biology though as I was expecting a 7. The whole year seemed to under perform in Biology with only 2 people getting a 7 in contrast to last years 22% achieving a 7.

    Good luck to everyone and hope you got the results you needed.

    Hey, FIRST, you should call KCL or send an email to them and ask them if they can put you in their waiting list.
