    I had my eye on their History course
    Would the grades be something like AAA? So it's a bit of a high clearing option.

    It is stupidly high for clearing but I had extenuating circumstances and they have been known to lower themselves to ABB (not exactly reliable info, I just know people who got in lower through clearing lol) so I was thinking about it. No thoughts are concrete at this stage obviously.

    Probably, but they only listed specific courses on there and now they're all gone which is slightly weird. Thank you
    Not weird at all really, they could have just updated ucas all in one go and so the list was previously not accurate.

    because now they have results they don't belive that they will have spaces?

    If worst comes to worst and you have to retake some exams next year, believe me, after C3 and C4 both C1 and C2 are ridiculously easy. Loads of my friends did it and they all said that. C3 and 4 are continuations of everything from C1 and 2 but just a bit more advanced. If you have to retake your applied unit that could be more difficult but still achievable. Am also going to do Physics at Uni this year depending on my results haha
    Alright thanks. Where you going to?

    but they had so many courses on clearing?? Could it be that they are processing results over the weekend and will it update the clearing list later on?

    exactly how i feel. All the previous years are childs play compared to that abhorrent excuse for an exam. I'm so worried but tbh AQA French boundaries never change enough to accommodate the difficulty of the exam and reflect student's abilities, so i'm not optimistic. What have you applied for/ where?
    Exactly! I felt so confident after doing mocks and now I have no clue! French at Southampton, you??

    Yeah, but if something has been in clearing up until this point and then isn't it kinda suggests that there might not be spaces.

    Yep I kinda inferred that... lol, but nothing is concrete at this stage, it all depends on results day. People may still choose to reject Kings on the day, leaving spaces.

    Yeah I get that. Obviously nothing is garunteed at all but it's fairly likely.

    For straight Maths: Exeter, Lancaster, Leeds, Newcastle, Southampton, Surrey, Sussex, and York. If you get rejected from both your choices, and these institutions are not up to your standard, I'd just do a gap year if I were you.

    Ah cool, and the offer I have is for English Lit at Exeter but I actually want to do politics with a year abroad in a francophone country ideally It's complicated loool. I have absolutely no idea - I answered the questions I knew and guessed the ones I didn't, I was happy with all the past papers, but the exam was nothing like that, so I have absolutely no idea whether I'll even get into my insurance at this point, let alone my firm!!
    Hopefully it's not as bad as we all thought
