    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!

    Anyone else awaiting AQA chemistry, AQA physics, MEI maths or MEI further maths??

    That CHEM4 will have the most beautiful grade boundaries with any luck...
    Same for me, but ocr for phsyics.

    Chem4 has to be low considering that last 9 mark question, layed an egg when I turned over the last page and saw it!!

    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?

    As soon as you give your clearing number or UCAS id (or surname and the first line of your address) then a university can access your entire application. They might not look at everything (although everywhere I've worked part of the telephone script required checking the application was complete). Not every university will make offers over the phone most will send an email through with the offer details on.

    There is a route that can be used to avoid a UCAS reference (but usually you would still need to provide a reference directly) called an RPA but universities are only supposed to use those for non uk students and even then some universities won't take them. That's why a conversation pre application if you're struggling to get a reference is helpful.
