    Isn't it funny how all of a sudden it seems like yesterday that we were on Miracle Day's results day thread which said '54 days to go' and now it's 4 days to go!

    How time flies!

    I'm not sure about oxbridge, but find it hard to believe they'd accept e grades?!

    Forgot about that, but it's a very isolated case - it's the only university I've heard of who does that.
    Yeah I don't think they want a repeat of last year with the lower numbers and clearing ! Oh well lucky for the people who got it I suppose!!

    5 people in my year got unconditionals for Birmingham university this year for economics!
    Same, a friend of mine got an unconditional for Politics and Economics. I think it was based on their AS results and because Birmingham expected them to do well. Ironically he got C's and D's in his January exams but it didn't matter in the end haha.

    No, Oxbridge sometimes don't want to lose exceptional students (inr) so give them an EE offer, which means even if they get something bad (by Cambridge standards) like AAB, they won't go through the hassle of calling them up, etc...
    This is usually for prodigies in their field who aren't the exam type, but can contribute to the subject.

    I am nervous too :/ I am only actually getting two results on Thursday as I only do three subjects due to a health problem. I was badly injured the day before my second biology exam as well so I am really worried! Xx

    It's just so real when you're actually in the dream though, but I do like waking up and realising that my UUUU (sometimes HTYG haha) was not real and then I get a massive rush of relief as I collapse back on my back and resume sleep.

    On the contrary, I hate when I get AAAA and then wake up and realise that those results weren't real; I normally assume the fetal position and stay like that until I get hungry
    I know how you feel! Don't worry, not too long now!
    Haha, 'until I get hungry'

    So scared about AS results on Thursday! Who else is waiting for results? Good luck!! What courses did you take? I took History, English lit, Classics and Psychology.
    I did History and English Lit too, what exam boards are you with?

    Yeah same here! I think Birmingham uni didn't have a great uptake last year and went through to clearing so are trying to maintain their "reputation" haha

    Does anyone know why universities will sometimes reduce the offer for certain people? E.G. A course that requires AAB will be offered to someone for ABB?
