    despite investing a lot of time in it, I don't think I've been able to do much apart from worry myself lol. I am v scared of my chemistry coursework, don't even need to get it moderated down cos I got 33/40 in chem lololol so probably not gonna get more than 42-5/60 ums for it, which basically leaves me with 18-15 ums to drop over both RPA and EEE for an A*. Have spent the whole summer wishing results day would hurry up but can't believe how quickly it's come around

    I sat 7 modules this year, I found C3 and FP3 so strange and hard. Very inconsistent with the past papers. That C3 paper might prevent me from going to my firm as I need an a*

    I thought that S1 and S2 were very standard and so found them easy.
    I just messed up M2 by not understanding the last q and a few shoddy mistakes.
    C4 was more standard, usually tricky, i think i got a solid 70 on that, and I found fp2 to be the usual difficultly (hard).

    So really it seems only C3 FP3 and M3 (from what I've heard) were the only ridiculously hard/unusual papers. Still, it hurts knowing they* decided to **** with C3 this year, the unit usually used to pull up C4 for A*'s.

    How about you, which units did you this year apart from core and M3? Did you find that all the papers were very strange or just a few?
    is that OCR? I found FP2 pretty difficult, am hoping for 80ums but could be high 70's:/ I'm pretty sure I averaged 90+ in D2 and S2

    Nice, how did your modules go?
    Pretty well. I think my average was just under 90. Got an A* in maths but missed out on it in further maths.

    Yup

    Universities don't hold grudges. If anything the fact that they were in your shortlist for applying means you're a better bet than someone who only considers that university on results day

    You can't reject either your firm or insurance. What you can do is explain that you no longer want the place and ASK them to put you into clearing.

    It's better to do this NOW rather than on results day. It takes on average 48 hours after results if you ask on the day (assuming you get through on the phone) and you can't apply in clearing until it is sorted out.

    If you know you don't want to go to your insurance then call them up today and explain that. Ask if they need anything in writing to make sure that if your firm reject you you end up straight into clearing without delays on results day.

    Needed 209 UMS in Edexcel maths

    Got

    57/75 C3
    67/75 C4
    49/75 S2

    C4 was really easy so high as **** grade boundaries. C3 was standard so I've scraped a B and I hope to **** 49 is a C in S2.

    This seems unlikely, Goodbye Med school.

    I'm a CIE ! Got sent this email from UCAS:

    Information about CIE A and AS end of title SpacingcontentAs you have included a pending qualification from Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) at A or AS on your UCAS application, there are a few things you need to know.CIE A and AS results are available earlier than other A and AS results – this year they will be available on Thursday 11 August. However, although you will receive your results from your school, the earliest you will receive decisions from universities and colleges in Track is Thursday 18 August. Universities can only discuss their decisions with you before Thursday 18 August if the academic conditions of your offer(s) are based entirely on your CIE A or AS results. Please be aware that we will be unable to discuss the status of your application with you if you call us before 18 August. If you are waiting for other exam results that are included in the conditions of your offer(s), your chosen won’t be able to discuss their decision with you until you have these.
    So we can call our university and tell them our results? And if we've met our offers will they issue us CAS for visa before the 18th of August?

    They will get your results on the 12th/13th - there's no need to call them.

    Whether they'll issue CASs before the 18th will depend on the university. Call them now and ask when they'll be issuing CASs - during the week from the 12th onwards admissions staff will be VERY busy. Don't call them during that week if you can avoid it (and if you do call them call on the Wednesday 17th when they might have some time to speak to you).

    I think CAS takes 5 working days to be issued by the university so even if it was issued after the 18th then I think you'll not be facing any problem with visa
