    sorry to all those who didnt get in, my advice to you would be to take a year out, work and save some money and try again - that is if you have no other offers. In reference to people saying they have heard of cases where UEA have sent out offers in June, I dont know where you heard this from but to my knowledge it happened to one person last year because UEA made a mistake, but this is very rare.
    UEA did this last year but for the 5 year course, which might be where people have got confused, it happened to 2 of my friends from school, not because they made a mistake just because of how many people didn't firm them!

    After looking at all my options, I have decided to reject my offer from st George's and go through extra. I will be applying to kings college London for biomedicine. This hurts too much though. My dream of medicine has to wait 3 years nos

    You had an offer from St George's for medicine?

    Also, I intend to go through clearing because well any chance is better than no chance. If not, I'll take a gap year, work at the hospital maybe get some more experience and try again. I was soooooo gutted yesterday because UEA was my last chance. I'm even a bit salty still

    They are, it depends tbh, because the amount of UK students going to Bulgaria is increasing per year.

    They were both rejected post-interview and think they must have got the offers in June but as I said this was for the 5 year course not foundation med...
    One of them got 4A's as his results, not sure about the other person but I know they got in, you have to get AAAb otherwise you won't get in on results day I believe

    I took a gap year when I didn't get any places last year. A lot of people I know have done it and it's actually really beneficial. I not only got some awesome work experience, but I also got to work and save money for next year. I got to do some work experience that lasted more than a week because I didn't need the time off college or anything. It was kinda disheartening at the time because all my friends were off at uni and enjoying themselves but it paid off for me because I've just confirmed my place which is super exciting!

    Also, has anyone confirmed their place yet? Have they received an email or anything about what to do next?

    That's incorrect information. Did you read the link that I posted?
