    The closer to results day we get, the more stressed I become. I feel like no set of results wouldn't be surprising as I have no idea what I've got, which is terrifying as I really prefer my firm to my insurance. I'm so excited for this all to be over as it's dominating the summer holiday!

    What are everyone's plans if you miss your offers? Resits? Gap year? Clearing? Closing your eyes and hoping all your problems will disappear?

    All your choices get your results.

    Some universities will sort through firm and insurance applicants and send decisions for them all to UCAS.

    Other universities will only sort through their firm applicants and any insurance applicants that have been rejected by their firms.

    Different universities work at different speeds - so it is possible to have your choices show any combination:

    CF , CI (neither have sent a decision to UCAS)

    UF, UI (both have confirmed your place - even though your insurance is confirmed that offer is not valid once your firm goes UF)

    UF, CI (your firm confirmed your place, your insurance either didn't decide or didn't bother)

    CF, UI (your insurance have confirmed your place but your firm hasn't sent a decision yet)

    UF, R (your firm has confirmed your place and your insurance has rejected you for not meeting their conditions)

    R, UF (your firm has rejected you and your insurance has confirmed your place and is now your firm)

    R, CF (your firm has rejected you and your insurance is now your firm but has not sent a decision to UCAS yet)

    R, R (both firm and insurance have rejected you and you're in clearing)

    There's also the chance that one or both of your firm and insurance could make a UCC - unconditional changed course offer. For a different course, a foundation year, year 1 entry instead of year 2 for Scottish universities. You get 5 days to either accept or decline the UCC. If you decline a UCC from your firm then your insurance becomes your new firm.

    IIRR Track calls a rejection "unsuccessful " (which is not great - because it's not a vastly different word at first glance to "unconditional " )


    Didn't see

    Don't want to see.

    I saw the words: horrible, grotesque and horrific. My brain can do without pictures of something like that.
    All choises? So even those you rejected???

    Clearing and if that fails it depemds on which subject stopped me. If maths or F.maths I'll resit. If physics o don't think I could self teach so gap year and then reapply next cycle if it's possible to get in.

    All of those!

    Expecting CHEM4 low (unless they're really messing with us), CHEM5 normal-high.

    PHYA4 normal, maybe a little lower. PHYA5 (did medical) as normal.

    MEI FP1 low, FP2 slightly lower than usual, M1 slightly lower, M2 normal, D2 normal, S2 really high (it was basically the same paper as 2015 with different numbers!).

    S2 i think will have the same grade boundaries as last year, and how much for an A do you reckon FP1 and FP2 will be?

    Ahahahahaha rather that then on the actual road! I hope so too, but I highly doubt it :rofl: I just want results day to be over and done with English is probably one of the most unpredictable, for you have to remember EVERYTHING about the text/s that you study :/ I was the same really, but I just wanted results day to come quickly
    Yeah I was convinced it was the subject I was gonna drop last year because I'd done so badly, and when I found out this exam was closed book.. :bricks: 11 days is nothing compared to the 2 years we've all stuggled with A-Levels so hopefully the time will fly.

    Yeah you can but why would you?
    Maths is the same spec next year anyway.

    is it ?!

    Because the statistics in first year of civil eng I've already done as part of further maths, I'd stay a year ahead of the uni syllabus and I find it very interesting and relevant to what I want to do in the future.
