    Oh Aha my apologies.
    If I suffered a family bereavement during exam period, how much information would be needed in a reference?
    Another teacher here.
    You need this to be dealt with by the exams officer at your school, who will process the information for the exam boards. Mentioning it in the reference can be as full or as brief as you and your referees decide it needs to be. Maximum allowance for special consideration is 5% for the death of a parent or sibling in the immediate period of the exams. It doesn't really amount to very much.

    Yeah but I think I can get AAA this year as I didn't really revise at all last year and did fine, I'm resitting a module which should bump one of my AS grades up to an A and I hope I can maintain or improve on what I already have. If all goes well I could end up with A*AA this year but that's best case. I should probably end up with AAB which I think will get me into these uni's if not i'll just go clearing.

    My choices are Exeter, Southampton, Newcastle, Birmingham and York.

    Do you think that's ok? I have quite coursework heavy subjects this year so I can have a good headstart anyway.
    If you can achieve that, looks like some good choices, don't apply to low universities which you don't want to go to all because of some predicted grades, I'm applying to uni's above my predicted grades. I just did bad last year since I didn't care enough and had goals, not gonna base my uni choices on predicted grades because of my failures last year thats cowardly, instead just gonna work hard this year and aim high, best of luck to you
