    Well, my back up plan was that if I don't get into my firm, I could contact my second-choice uni (not my insurance) and ask them if they'll take me through clearing. And then ring up my insurance and ask them to release me. But now I find out that that won't work as well as I hoped. I don't have much of a problem with my insurance, but man, if I end up at my insurance university, my family (particularly brother) will laugh at my face since he's so proud that he managed to get into a better uni. -.- And my mum and dad will be really disappointed, particularly today, they were all like "Oh I'm pretty sure you'll get in!"; "You worked so hard, you'll get in". It made me feel worse. :/

    Okay, it's not as bad as it sounded. It's still bad for me :c
    Don't stress i'm pretty sure you'll get in, you did work so hard.

    So is your firm better than your brothers that you get laughing rights ?:cool:

    What would you rather do, a third year of A levels or clear to another university?
    I think I would try to resit my failed exams externally (if that's possible), then get a full time job and try again next year. I really want to go to my firm university lol

    Why not?
    1) My UMS might not be great this year (we'll see on Thursday)
    2) No straight chem course with a language
    3) No year abroad

    I feel exactly the same! Results day this year is nothing compared to what we will have to go through next year, as all the former year 13s on this thread can relate to, I'm sure It is also going to be worse for a lot of schools because last year after the exam period, some had to go back for a month to do A2 work which took our minds off results day, but obviously next year, when the exam period is over, the holidays can begin. That's an extra month of nervousness and waiting for something that determines EVERYTHING. Never mind, I guess we'll just have to cross that bridge when we come to it ay!

    I really like your username xD. I think AS is less stressful because you have another year but when you go to A2, you have a goal or an aim and instinctively work harder if that helps? Last year I wasn't stressed over my results because I knew I could do them again/ have the opportunity to work harder, and I got crappy grades, but it didn't feel like the end of the world and I actually knew what I did wrong last year. This year, I was a fricken angel/saint, so I better get into my firm xD

    Thanks, even Oxford I might not... They don't have an official year abroad, but apparently it's offered. I'm thinking more Imperial, York, Durham and Edinburgh.

    Is there a way to check how many people have firmed your uni compared to the amount of actual places? Even if its for last year.

    Also, where can I find a list of clearing places for 2012, want to look to see what my uni was like then!

    (Uni of Shef)

    3 days . . . 72 hours . . . christ on a bendy bus, it's less than 72 hours!
    This is horrible.
    Who's planning a movie/TV marathon on results night? I don't have the full Harry Potter set (on DVD, anyway) so I'll probably fill in the first films with something hopeful . . . like Memoirs of a Geisha, maybe.
    No matter what happens on Thursday, at least I'm not going to be sold by my parents to become a pretty face for hire.
    I think.
