    Wow really I can't believe it, you deserved it so much and you did well in BMO and all that. I don't know how they decided not to accept you when there were people with worse grades being accepted last year (e.g. no BMO, 3 in STEP, etc etc). I guess the competition went up

    So what are you planning to do now? If I were you I would definitely consider a gap year and reapply
    Im gna reapply. Imperial/warwick and Cambridge again. I could very well get an S offer but I would take that.

    I have a question about remarks and when you get a refund, is it when the overall grade for the subject changes or the individual module changes OR if the A2 allocated marks changes "grade"?

    In my example I got a B in A2 Biology as i got 235/300 so 5 off an "A" so if I remarked a module and it went up by 5 do I get a refund even if my overall grade stays at an A?

    I know that's a hard decision because it seems so far away but I think it's for the best. You can learn and develop a lot in a gap year, and having already applied before your second application should be even stronger!

    I think it's just the overall grade. Why would you want to though? No one cares about UMS outside of Cambridge

    Because I am a bit of a perfectionist and I put in the most revision hours for Biology and I feel like I did much better than the marks I got my dad was perfectly fine with remarking and it's his money so

    Hey Guys!
    First of all, CONGRATS on getting in!
    Now then:
    I got a conditional offer with a 1 in STEP from Christ's. As I had taken a gap year my grades were already submitted at A*A*A*A.
    I missed out on my 1 by quite a bit but I haven't heard from my college regarding a rejection or pooling and my UCAS track status is still unchanged.
    WHAT IS GOING ON?
    I have to soon book my flight tickets to my fall back as classes start in 15 days there.

    You're in the summer pool, you should find out the final decision in about 3 days or less

    You need to speak to your college, either via phone or email - and find out what is happening. They will either be rejecting you, accepting you or putting you in the summer pool.

    Speak to them and then see where you are

    Okay, I suppose that makes sense. If it's not too much to ask, what will be the determining factors in the summer pool if you happen to know?

    I was about to email them, then I thought I'd find out what you may have to say about it. But if its a rejection, isn't it usually done quite soon after UCAS track is active? Which fueled my suspicions of being put in the pool. Do they usually inform you if you are in the pool?
