    [QUOTE=Guills on wheels;50770575]it's probably fine, to be honest.

    it won't matter as much as your actual a levels/as levels, and to be honest, if it's so major (like, if you were applying for theatre studies or something), then just ring them up.

    but chill, they probably won't notice.

    It's for medicine so it's not important- I just don't want to be rejected over a silly little thing :/

    Do I need to call UCAS and the universities I applied to?

    I mean, call them if you feel the need to, not now, but later, because it's so late.

    if it's anything serious the application will get sent back to you. loads of people in my school messed up a small bit of the application regarding the student loan and it just got bounced back no problem.

    with at least 1000 applications per uni (I generalise, some have more, some less) then to be honest, they probably won't pull you up on that, espesh for medicine.

    55's a fair bit. well done!

    (f**k me, I could do with 55 points)

    ask your teacher on monday, they'll advise. check track too, or a your admissions tutor, or anyone who knows anything about your application really, and they'll either know if it's been sent back, or if not, what to do.

    where are you applying to?
    Oxford, UCL, Birmingham and Queen's Belfast (and Warwick for chemistry).

    How about you?

    Thanks for the help with my ucas fiasco I was just scared that if they find out I put the wrong awarding body they would think I'm not honest/detail orientated/etc

    nah, they are human too, oddly enough :')

    SOAS (school of oriental and african studies, is awesome)
    Nottingham (but it's a bit dull)
    Leeds
    Sheffield (not great, hopefully won't have to go there)
    and Durham (defo defo defo not).

    I'm quite certain with my preferences :')

    but it makes sense though, because I'm applying for Chinese Studies, and there's only 12 places in the uk that do it :')

    actually, if we're doing remembering, I wonder if anyone remembers me? I was here getting blocked every two weeks at the start of year 12/end of year 11 (I think).

    Final question: does anyone know anyone who is doing Chinese studies? I feel desperately alone.

    Ok... can anyone help me out?
    At my school we got our LPUK (generated based on GCSEs basically) predicted grades. Mine are BBB which is alright ^^. I'm thinking of my uni choices being ABB, 3 BBBs and a points/BBC. Problem is my Spanish AS was an E because I messed up and I was told I was getting higher/doing better than I actually was doing. I'm worried my teachers won't predict me a C... let alone a B. I'm going to retake but they doubt my ability to be able to get up to a B (which actually feels really discouraging). I think I could get predicted an A in English but that Spanish grade is haunting me...
    Any advice??

    my name's Gil, I'm from london and my favourite colour at the moment is pewter. my girlfriend's just gone up to cambridge and I really f*cking miss her.

    I'm in my 7th year of studying the chinese language and I just kinda want to see how long I can go with it. plus, it's really properly interesting, and I just really like chinese history and learning a different language. I just kinda feel I can throw myself at chinese in a way I can't with my other two subjects (history of art and maths).

    I did physics AS. I got a B, but...

    never again.

    Oh wow!! What's your gf studying in Cambridge at the moment?
    Chinese language is really fun, especially ancient Chinese. Are you applying this year? Where are you applying?

    I did AS chinese, but I can't be bothered to do A2 chinese because I was told that the percentage of A* is so low that it is literally impossible to get it....
    Btw, I am also in London! ahah

    Theology, but in the process of changing to English.

    Yeah, definitely applying this year, to SOAS, Nottingham, Durham, Sheffield and Leeds. Only really want to go to SOAS though, and defo not Durham. They're based half on whether they're good unis, and half on how near to Cambridge they are… Grades weren't good enough (got ABB at AS, doing Mandarin Pre-U) for cambs.

    If you did Edexcel Chinese… we did pre-u for precisely that reason; apparently the A2 exams are designed for native speakers :/

    yeah, I learn simplified script but chinese history is my absolute fave. love 20th century politics too though.

    Oh yeah? where abouts? I live in Holloway

    Other than that, music (listening, and occasionally writing about) is my love.

    Chinese history is really complicated!!!! So many small countries to remember....

    Oooops sorry, I missed your message because of too many quotes lol.

    State school for the win!
    You are right. I also am interesting in BioChem.

    But I still want to try and go into medicine as I would much rather do that IMO but if I can't I will fall back on this. But then I would have to take a gap year and if I don't get the grades, it could be a waste of year.

    I could apply for BioChem this year, but I haven't even started my application. I already told my teachers I wasn't going to be applying for uni this year too. I doubt I would also be able to do a good Personal statement in this time period.

    But it would be stupid to not apply as if I don't get AAA, then I could start Biochem straight away(as long as I meet the grade requirements, I want to go to a pretty good uni too), I would then have wasted a year for nothing.

    Seems like I need advice on this lol.
    I haven't discounted doing post grad medicine, but for the minuted Biochem is for me! Good luck!

    Just bare in mind most of the top places for Biochem want at least AAB. A great similar course is Cellular and Molecular medicine at Bristol if you are looking for a 5th choice for a Medical Application, with ABB requirements for most state schools.

    Good choice, seems you have a clear conviction, which is good .

    I realised I won't be eligible to apply for the top unis because I got a D in Chem(really bad on unit 2 which is forcing to do a gap-_-). Should hopefully raise that to A though, this year . Rest of my subjects meet/exceed the prediction.
    So I will still need to go on a gap year because my predictions won't be high enough for the top schools. I am forced to take a gap year I guess ;D.

    Which unis are you applying for? I honestly don't know the top unis for biochem are Oxbridge. I got good GCSEs but I don't know how much A* they would like or like the competition for biochem.

    I would most likely go into doing a PGCE though and become a chem teacher . Unless research seems interesting lol.
