    I think the marking process is way more accurate compared to a-levels so I guess it won't change much.
    However if you're 1-2 points away from a grade boundary they might do you a favour.
    I want that S in step II ( I lost it for 1 mark) so I have the same quarry
    it's unlikely to make much of a difference. I don't know anyone who has got a remark, but given that Cambridge colleges get your scripts, they can judge the quality and raise an issue if something doesn't seem right.

    I didnt meet my A level offer but I met my STEP offer. It's not like I didnt make my a level offer just slightly.

    They asked for A*Further maths A* Physics but I only got A in physics and it wasn't a strong A either, it was like the midway point being an A and an A*.

    I did get S (117), 1 (74), S (101) in step though and my offer was an S, 1 so how at risk am I of being rejected? Cause my parents are freaking out but I keep telling them with the step results there is no way that cambridge would reject me since I also missed my offer for my insurace Imperial college (B in economics lol) but then again I did miss my a level offer

    It's hard for anyone to give a conclusive reply but your University will have some leeway. Track will update at 8:00 (sometimes 7:30) so I would suggest calming yourself and trying not to overthinking. Best of luck

    Indeed. That's when track opens (for results but not full track).

    it's unlikely you'll be rejected by Cambridge. Wait for Track to update to confirm. Are you guessing your A-Level results or have you got them early?

    Ok. The only thing you can do now if wait for Track to update. I'd be shocked if Cambridge didn't take you in instantly (ie by your first college). If it gets to the point that Imperial are deciding, give them a call to point out your STEP results, as they don't get them automatically. I wouldn't worry though - S1S is exceptional so it'd be crazy not to accept on A-level grades

    Needed grade 1 in STEP II and III, got grade 1 for STEP II and I, and yeah just missed a 1 in STEP III. Hopefully the difference between Cambridge and Bath is not by 2 marks, provided my A-level are within offer.

    Alright, I guess I'll have to wait another painstaking 30 minutes then

    Do you know how to view the explanation of results? I'm having issues opening the link and i dont seem to be the only one

    edit: Ucas track udpated, my offer for imperial college is unconditional but Cambridge has no changes

    They are with your results; on the right, underneath the option to download a pdf of your results, you can also download the "explanatin of results", i.e. the distribution of marks
    Ahh okay, didn't see that there thank you!

    Does that mean s/he was pooled?
    It means cambridge hasn't informed Ucas track of their decision

    It might be possible that I have been pooled which is why it has not updated

    shamika summoned me so I haven't read everything... But that means you are still under consideration. Send your UMS details to your college when you get them and fingers crossed. You may still be accepted by your college, or summer pooled, or, of course, be unsuccessful...


    Good luck!

    Call your college to find out what's going on.*
