    My friends said it was okay, but if they ask for evidence, expect the whole thing to be long and tiring and stressful
    Oh, I've done that before! For EMA

    Well, that's a reason for you to apply to Cambridge then - you'd love filling in the SAQ... I lost my mind doing that thing.
    Meh, don't know about Cambridge...

    The raw boundaries are not always the same, it's just that their UMS boundaries are always the same (they go up in 10% increments. It'd take a while to explain UMS considering how tired I am but these aren't the boundaries that matter.

    This thread should be updated pretty much instantly when the raw boundaries are released.

    What would you rather do, a third year of A levels or clear to another university?
    If I was in that position, I think I'd decide to not go to uni, and just get a job instead.

    Mea culpa, I only looked at the PDF quickly assuming there were raw marks so I could give it to TSR as soon as possible . For some reason I thought you meant the raw marks stayed constant which left me confused, then I realized that the spreadsheet was only UMS.

    I understand, apologies for being a bit rude. It's just that people often post them as a joke and I get all excited

    Went onto QUB's website and into clearing.
    No vacancies for French with law (what I want to do) for NI and EU students..
    But there are vacancies for international students and they're asking for ABB (A level equivalent)
    My offer was for AAA.. Can anyone tell me does this mean they've lowered the entry requirements?
    Or they haven't filled the places they hoped to with internationals.

    Yeah the reason I assumed they were raw was the fact that OCR has a track record of releasing them early by accident. (Reference to the time when TSR went into meltdown last year after OCR released raw early and then took it down, whilst TSR members frantically tried to PM each other.)

    Exactly how I feel! I wouldn't even know if my course will clear to any decent universities?
    Thats what concerns me too, since I'm doing a joint degree and only like, 10 uni's do the course I want to do :/ plus the individual course modules have to be interesting since all 10 uni's don't do the same modules :/

    Yeah I'd heard about that, hopefully it'll happen again. Knowing my luck it won't though
