    Awhh, I'm really sorry to hear that. They probably haven't given any international offers yet. You could try emailing if you haven't heard before mid next week. All the best

    This isn't strictly relevant but...
    Is it stupid to firm and insure 2 offer of AAA even though my predictions are only AAA and there's a chance (hopefully a small ish one) that I won't make the grades? Should I put my back up course as my insurance with AAB grades? How lenient are schools like Leicester with grades?

    I have no idea what to do argh

    BOOM - rejected.

    Oh well; the only good thing about Leicester for me were the new Med buildings we mightn't even get to use much and the student union building. They were great.

    I'd say it depends on how passionate you are to do medicine. Obviously if you dropped a grade your hope would be that they might still allow you in but, if not, would you consider retaking that subject and attempting a reapplication or would you put medicine behind you? If you accept your back-up course and then miss the medicine grade you will actually have to do your back up course (UCAS don't look kindly upon anyone who reneges upon their confirmed options). Trying to second-guess the admissions team is really tricky: I would guess that there will be large numbers of people with no offers but who did well enough at interview (just missing out on an offer) and then go on to get their A's so they may opt to offer them a last-minute place if numbers are down. I'd say it's impossible to guess so your 'tactics' should be very much about what you would want to do if you actually miss a grade...

    Personally I decided to withdraw from my non-med backup and I'm just gonna do a firm and insurance as med choices as there have been a few examples of insurance choices letting near misses in!!

    I'm only about 75% sure I'll get AAA, but I've decided to opt for the "I'll cross that bridge if/when I come to it" kind of stance

    Nah thats not true its dead easy to with draw your application you do not have to do you back up course at all. i did it last year i recieved no offers for medicine so firmed my back because it was a confort to have something there. It telos you what to do on ucas you just send an emaul to the university and its done its fine! If you were to miss a grade i think its very possible for you to get a place on something else through clearing

    Well that's good to know although I heard the opposite from someone today so maybe they were just suggesting that they would lose the possibility of sneaking in to their med choice on low grades if they had already been accepted to their insurance choice...

    I can imagine that is true also i think when unis look to give extra offers out they look at people who arent holding any offers, i recieved an email od one uni satig this last year and whether they mean any medd offers of any offers at all is very ambiguous when decisions are made on results day it does seem priority is given to those with no offers this is all assumption so please nobody make a dexision bases on me haha but yeah withdrawing is fine i even got a lovely email of the department to say that the offer would still stand if i reapplied to them again
