    My school's team came 21st out of 36 in the SMC yesterday but I wasn't in it! :mad:
    I wasn't too desperate to do it this year again as I knew I'm going to be a bit busy. But we are an all girls school and there aren't too many people who were keen to do that. (There are 5 of us doing FM, only 1 doing FM in year 12.)

    If you want to check on your own, the results from today's heats are here: http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/educa...onalheats.aspx. Also, my SMC heat was 2 weeks ago but we managed to come 6th, losing out to our local rivals. :<
    When they say the other teams, do they put them in the order of best to worst or is it random?

    It's random unfortunately. In the heats, they only announce the winners and runners-up.

    All I know is that not 1st or 2nd. Have to wait for an email from my teacher (if she sends it... she is going to the hospital for a week tomorrow).
    I think out presentation was good but when they started asking questions... It was a bit of disaster.

    Yeah you are right there, a lot of schools do exams in the summer only, but a lot also do exams in January so hopefully the uni's are aware of this and can realise that a lot more candidates may not do as well as they could due to being stressed out during exams because of the greater number hence they could give out more offers, even 10% more offers would make us feel a whole lot better I guess.



    Exactly what happened to me , my anxiety was only increased because my phone crashed just when I opened my email and the only thing I read was "UCAS".
    haha yeah hopefully - i dont think i'll be affected too badly by it as all my exams last year were in May anyway, so im used to having it all at the end of the year. That said got a LOT more exams this year ( although a lot are pointless and don't make a difference to my offer - General Studies being the biggest example )

    yeah, not much we can do but wait unfortunately! don't think the other 3 Uni's ive applied to will be getting back to me soon, 2 of them i know for certain won't get back until anywhere between January-March time.

    Yep same here, I don't expect any replies till January from all my uni's even though I applied in October.
    I am quite used to having exams in January so to be having 11 A2 exams in the summer is quite terrorising . But my first priority is to get my A stars in maths and further maths which hopefully will be easier due to changeable modules and then focus on getting A stars on the other subjects (time permitting though), as I can afford to make a few mistakes here and there (not that I will be taking it for granted I am very much aiming to get 4 A*'s).

    Just got a rejection from Brasenose for Economics and Management. Absolutely gutted, but I can't really say I wasn't expecting it given the competitiveness of the course and to be honest I'm a little bit relieved to not have an interview and extend the waiting...
