    as long as you meet your offer, is there any evidence to suggest that universities mind if you don't meet your predicted grades? eg. if an offer was A*AA and i got A*AAB but i was predicted A*A*A*A, will universities look down on this despite me going there?
    They'll be relieved that you aren't eligible for adjustment

    UCAS only get the CIE results today.

    The other exam boards send results through tomorrow.

    UCAS send the results on to universities on Friday night/Saturday morning - quite often getting the results loaded and set up to report on takes 24 hours within universities....decisions start to happen on Sunday and Monday.

    What's everyone doing to pass the time? The wait is excruciating! Also, when do grade boundaries usually get released? 😊

    Also anyone who does OCR biology, do you think the grade boundaries for F214 and F215 will be low? pls
    The biology exams were hard especially the second one with loads of practical questions. I found the both hard, dont know about you! I guess the grade boundaries will be quite low depending on how all students did. Other people from my college found it hard as well. We'll see anyways!

    Good luck!
