    Thanks, that helped a lot That means achieving a higher grade in one subject but failing to met the grade requirement of another does not help. Oh dear, that could turn out to be a problem for me Thanks x

    A friend of mine last year had an offer for Law with French Law at Exeter for AAA. He ended up with A* A B but they decided to let him in anyway. It's impossible to say how it'll go really, so best to just keep fingers crossed and panic for now.

    Edit: He got an A* in History and a B in French or English Lit.

    I wish I was getting my results by text or email sitting in front of the sea/in an ultra lush villa on an island at dawn, but hey, I can dream.
    It'll be raining on Thursday where I am apparently so I will be walking to school looking like a drowned rat to collect my results.

    Are people opening them at school in front of friends and teachers or waiting until they get home? Just curious

    Thanks. I guess it'll be down to what the uni decides and whether they will be willing to accept you even if you missed your offer. I really hope that is the case for me. Though I am worried about maths which the uni said I should get an A in!

    It would mean it wouldn't be dffo but most unis would be OK with it depending on which subjects you got the higher and lower grades in and how relevant they are to the course :-) x
    All right, I hope that they accept me with a B in Math despite having stated that they need an A in maths. I suppose that depends on how well other applicants have done and whether they hsve places on the course.

    I hoping to do Law at Warwick and they need AAA, but I have a feeling it'll be more like A*AB for me, so I hope they let me in with that! Ahh, I hope the admissions people are nice

    How Ironic is this Guys, At the beginning most Universities will be advertising to you whether its by Radio , Online, Tv or on even on Spotify!

    And you think 'Hey i might apply there' :awesome:
    and when you do apply, and reject you - You'll be like 'Why where you even advertising to me in the first place!! If you were going to end up rejecting me! :mad: '

    Ahhh Life is Tough indeed :bawling:
