    They will have your results on Monday - they won't have them today or tomorrow during working hours, and even if you tell them your results they might not be in a position to decide which missed offers they'll accept until Monday or later.

    If they can't answer on Monday I'd suggest calling their international team and asking them to put pressure on the admissions team for you for a decision ASAP.
    Alright, I really appreciate your help. Thanks

    Which question are you reffering to?
    The one about gender schema which was asked last year I think, purely because it was a real shock

    Exeter relied on automatic decision making a few years ago - it accidentally accepted an extra 400 students
    https://www.theguardian.com/educatio...-student-error (200 later rejected or offered deferred entry, another 200 had their offer changed to cornwall campus)

    Offer conditions aren't usually recorded in a way that allowa automatic decision making to happen (they're coded using a very antiquated system- most offers include a "k" code that just means "plus some free text" ). It's most sensible to have actual humans making decisions (and checking decisions) - it makes possible mistakes easier to spot (for example applicants where UCAS has only made a partial match of grades, or applicants who have a range of qualifications or qualifications taken over more than one application cycle) and it means things like special consideration can be taken into account easily.
    that sounds awful!!! :afraid:

    Yeah, I understand all of that now. It's rather interesting.

    That's the best way to do it. I had to stand and talk to mine for literally an hour last year.

    So, I've been freaking out about this for ages now and if anyone can advise me on what might happen I'd appreciate it.

    I wrote one of my questions on my maths paper (D2 AQA) purely in pencil by force of habit. Will I lose all of these marks as the scanner can't pick it up? I'm worrying as this paper should be one that I can get my A* on but I won't if I lose this whole question.

    Also, if this does happen to be the case, can I request a remark and somehow notify the exam board that this was the reason and that perhaps they could refer to my original script?

    Pencil should only be used for drawing

    it says on the front of the paper you can do drawings and diagrams in pencil, so they must be able to see it. as long as you didn't press down really lightly which I'm sure you didn't it'll be okay ahah

    If it isn't being picked up by he scanner they mark them by hand, but as people are saying the scanners can see pencil but pen is easier to see, that's why they ask for it to be used.

    Ohh UCAS have just notified us that they have *most* of the A level files through from exam boards

    [NOTE - this is GOOD news, if they're late or delayed or there's problems then that can cause all sorts of problems with universities and UCAS getting Track updated in time - early delivery is definitely a positive thing, it means fewer muddles and mistakes on results day]

    I'm pretty sure it was social influences last year and gender schema theory in 2014. It was quite a big shock though as aqa in the past had always left 2 years between questions. if they were going to ask about cognitive theories I was certain it was going to be kohlberg so my answer turned out awful 😞
