    I'm in the same position! I only got 3 offers (applied for a very competitive course), and they all required the same grades. The 2 uni's I got rejected from had lower grades and one of them would have been my insurance. It puts so much pressure on for next week.
    (( what course/unis may I ask? It's awful isn't it... if one was lower I would feel so much better but for me it's just making it worse.

    Applying for Imperial College Maths, my offer is one grade higher than the standard offer as my MAT grade (51) was kinda low for Imperial. My offer is A*A*A* in Maths, Further Maths and Physics. I did Maths last year, and got an A*, this year I've done Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry. I think I've made my offer but not completely sure. My Further Maths is definitely an A* as I checked my answers with friends and tsr. I can't tell how well I did on one of the physics exams so kinda worried about that but the other two parts should be close to full ums. I think my chemistry will be on the A/A* boundary. Although they have asked for an A* in physics, if I got an A* in Chemistry and missed out by a couple of marks in Physics, would they still let me in? Would I have to ring? Any opinions or help will be appreciated.

    You could try ringing, but none of us can say for certain. It's worth bearing in mind, however, that they'll have had your results (not UMS marks though) for a few days before you'll have got them so they'll have had plenty of time to come to a decision.

    Oh really, I didn't realise that, thank you. So if I got like 89 ums in physics and 95 ums in maths and further maths, would this change how they view my results. Does ums matter or is it just the grades? It would be awful to miss out by a couple of marks in physics.

    For AS I did Plath and Hughes for the poetry section and Tom Stoppard's Arcadia for the play.

    For A2 I did Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience for the poetry and Shakespeare's King Lear and Sophocles' Oedipus Rex.

    I enjoyed A2 way more than AS because I think I understood the content way more, even though Arcadia is now one of my favourite dramas!

    What did you both study and how did you find it?
    I had The Kraken for poetry and then Capote's In Cold Blood and Diane Samuel's Kindertransport...can't say I enjoyed any of them!

    Just out of curiosity...

    Is there anyway to start a course at one University from year one and then go to another to start the same course at year 2 ?

    Can it be done or is this just nonsense?

    Does anyone know anyone who has been accepted at uni for not having the entry requirement subject shown at their website? (just curious)
    Well I've not been accepted yet (fingers crossed) but was confused the other day when I refreshed myself with the stuff on my course and saw that the standard offer listed on their website had changed from A*AA to A*A*A. Not sure what that's about

    Edit: Just realised I completely missed the word "subject" when I read what you put, ignore me 😂

    That will be the university updating their entry requirements for 2017 applicants.

    I feel the same about not firming an offer that would have been unconditional. But I suppose you must have had a reason for it - you preferred somewhere else? Life is about risk... :cry:
    Good luck for results day, if you got an unconditional from Birmingham I'm sure you are capable of great things. :yep:

    Yeah, I firmed an offer from a more highly ranked university. It was cerainly risky and I still believe I made the right decision, although it's becoming increasingly difficult to accept that. Thank you for that, I'm sure you are too

    Yeah, but 4B 15 markers were definitely a lot more harsh for me :s I dont remember exactly but regret not putting down the critiques of conservatives on feminism :/ but i did talk about liberal, third wave feminism and islam critiques on feminism, dont think i did particularly well on that question..
    I don't think I alluded to all of the ideologies explicitly in that question, if that makes sense? :lol: I used a conservative critique but didn't label it as conservative for some reason... Well, you included three critiques and I think that sounds great. :yep:
    Good luck for results day soon!

    I'm (hopefully) starting law in September too - I'm guessing you are too from the gavel in your picture. May I ask which uni you firmed?
