    Is anyone who missed their offer coming to Warwick? It seems like everyone who is rejected is reapplying next year.

    Yeah got accepted by Warwick, definitely not reapplying to Cambridge but really, really would have liked to have been accepted first time round.
    Sorry I haven't been following. If you don't mind me asking, how come you are not accepted in Cambridge with your great results in STEP?

    Because I messed up the pre-interview test so badly that the interviewer had already given up on me before the interview lol. Probably concluded there was no way I could handle STEP.

    I believe the errors were reported to students on Thursday, having been identified on Wednesday. As far as I am aware only four grades were changed as a result of the errors.
    How on earth did that happen?!?! It does beg the question of whether there are more errors. I assume once the first error was spotted people didn't go through every script again...

    Also doesn't 'only four grades (not marks) were changed' mean that there were a lot more than 4 errors?

    Well, they got ur step grades so they will regret it massively that they missed a good student.

    How did you do in STEP? Assuming you got a 1 in at least one paper since you got in without A* in FM?
    I put Imperial as insurance lol.

    I'm not gonna do Maths, got in for Maths and Physics. Actually had to go through Clearing, so I was pretty lucky. I liked that my course has the option to switch to either straight major after the first year, so if I do well enough I could still do Maths

    My STEP was pretty terrible, but I did pass, so you probably can tell what I got :P I did get 4A*s, so I was hoping that both of them might overlook the Further, but oh well. How come you firmed Warwick over Imperial? Was Imperial's requirement lower?

    I can't really answer in that level of detail without compromising individual applicants' anonymity. Sorry.
    I'm the Christ's offer that had his grade changed from 1 to S in Step II .
    However they didn't inform me about the mark I got and I want to know.
    I guess we are talking about one or a couple of points ,but still I wanna know.
    What should I do? Ask anyone?

    Oh nice, 4A* anyway XD. Only had 2.

    Yeah Imperial was lower. But I didn't want to go to Imperial anyway. In fact if I had missed my Warwick offer (I have no idea how I would though) I would've probably had to take a gap year and stuff. Would probably reapply to Cambridge in that case.
    But that would've been bad.

    Ahh I see. I was thinking of a gap year too but then decided I couldn't be bothered XD Anyways I think I'm pretty happy with how things turned out. Looking forward to seeing you around in October!

    It was a marking error with a small number of scripts. I don't know the exact details (I'm a medieval historian after all!) of the whys and wherefores. Fortunately it was noticed (if not quite in time for results to have gone out) and has been rectified. It's obviously a bit embarrassing for us but all exams are susceptible to human error unfortunately.
