    Hey guys! Do you think checking UCAS before getting your results is better or the other way round? Some people said its more scary checking UCAS first but surely you'd be quickly relieved to find that you've either not gotten your results or you have. Also what if you missed one grade off your offer but then you go onto UCAS to find that your uni has offered you a place anyway? All that heart sinking sh** feeling or nothing! Just a thought.

    I'm feeling sick just thinking of that Thursday urgh
    Oh god I'm not too sure! A lot of people have said that, if you check track and you hadn't got in, then you would be able to prepare yourself a lot more :/ But I'm not too sure... I don't know what I'm gonna do, if I check it I might panic, but I'm probably gonna panic regardless Ah yes some Unis do that! I'm going to need a miracle! :rofl:

    It's going to go so fast!

    It isn't, no, but so many of my friends worked their butts off and didn't do very well :/ Oh it certainly doesn't, but in my case, neither is maths :rofl: It does indeed, that's one of the main reasons as to why I chose to do it! Nah, I wanted to do it as a side thing... sort of like a stress reliever :) I'm hopefully doing Primary Education with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) at Bishop Grosseteste :)
    Aww no sorry to hear that, as much as I loved psychology I am glad to be finally rid of it. Oh yeah that sounds like a good idea, I was considering that too. Can honestly say I've never heard of that university :$ but I just looked it up and it seems quite nice, you're brave to want to be a teacher tho.

    Hey everyone!

    I am waiting for my AS results.
    I'm currently studying English Lit, Philosophy and Psychology.
    I adore St. Andrews!
    I'm trying to choose between philosophy, psychology or a foundation medical course.
    Usually AAB - BBB dependent
    I don't have predicted grades, we have minimum target grades, of which I am expected to get at least BBB or higher.
    It was pretty horrific, and I am trying to forget the horrible exam experiences I had.
    I am extremely nervous about results day, as if I get below a certain grade, it is likely I will be kicked out (college policy).
    Also waiting for AS results, and I also adore St Andrews! Hoping to study Physics there.

    It just feels like such a nice university (well, haven't actually been there yet) because of how small it is and how rather than a campus it is integrated within the little town of St Andrews. I also like its traditions such as the formal red grown, the academic family thing. and the May dip!

    Aw, good luck! That sounds awesome. Yes, I just love the idea of going to that university, but it really depends on what happens on results day to whether I apply or not. Fingers crossed!

    Speak directly NOW to the universities you're thinking of applying to. They might be willing to accept a clearing application without a reference (in which case it would be fine to leave the reference blank) or with just the contact details of a referee or with a non academic reference.

    Whatever you do don't apply without a reference without getting confirmation from your preferred universities that it is ok or ok to provide directly later.

    And email your referee at school - it's possible they'll be in the day before results and will be able to get your reference together a bit quicker.

    Yes you do. Universities can see your full application in clearing - predictions, exam results, achieved grades, original choices, PS and reference.

    I'm assuming you speak and ask if they have a place given your grades. And if they do then tell them a few of your details then send them an application through ucas?
