    You can apply for insurance accommodation? Most unis don't do that...

    Found out that my results day is 8:30 so as soon as track updates I have to be go to school
    Oh, my insurance kept sending me emails to apply for accommodation but I'm not sure if they differentiate.

    And ugh, that's awful! I get my results at 7, thank goodness. Will you be able to check on the way to school?

    They probably do. And that's really good I guess. Most don't want to differentiate between insurance and clearing/advancement I guess.

    7?! I'd hate that I'd rather see my track first and then get results so either I've already had my mini-panic before results or I go in knowing whatever the results they don't matter so I won't be too disappointed.

    I'll have 5 minutes from when track is meant to update until I need to go to school so it just means if I don't get in I'll be mid-panic when I collect my results.

    Debating whether I should go out and get pissed the night before results day so I can calm myself down a bit.

    But if I end up with bad news or in clearing, the last thing I want to have is a hangover.

    ABB for both of mine, but my firm is more lenient. I haven't even applied for accommodation or anything at my insurance!
    Mine both want AAA lol but I'm hoping one is lenient ( wishful thinking ) and oh gosh I would be stressing if I were you but if your uni is known to be lenient then should be alright

    Hey i would really appreciate feedback from everyone on TSR about the following issue:



    For the October/November exam timetable i have noticed that CIE have placed several exams applying to all levels over very religious Jewish holidays. I would like to find out if anyone else has been affected by these exams as CIE dont seem bothered to help out with this issue. i would really appreciate if i could get assistance on this matter as i feel as though have been left alone to deal with an issue which i am sure others are also facing.



    I look forward to your responses

    Laila, in my opinion, religious holidays/festivals shouldn't get a special status when it comes to exams. If Fred can't get his exam moved because of his uncle's birthday, or Katie isn't granted mitigating circumstances for a family barbecue, then I'm afraid Jewish holidays are no different.

    I would try and work around the religious holidays. Imagine if people saw an issue with exams around scientifically - rather than religiously - important events, such as the transit of Venus, a monarch butterfly migration or a solar eclipse. It just doesn't cut it I'm afraid.

    I would be genuinely interested to see what others think about this. Good luck with your exams.

    To be honest, I'm not really dreading it anymore
    If I get in, great, if not then I'll have to take a gap year which would be great after 13 years of education and it's not exactly the end of the world
