    About 3 days ago, my firm sent me an email about accommodation plans and I'm wondering if that's a good sign of me getting in considering they already have my grades and surely wouldn't need to send anything to me if they rejected me. I guess it wouldn't hurt to be optimistic (and then get crushed after )

    What do you guys think?

    Hey, yeah my friend got in I think her offer was ABB for Biochem but she got CCD and the D was in Chemistry lol so I really don't know, you stand good chances for QMUL! What is the course you applied for?

    Surely that's a troll. 5 grades down and missing in a key subject... Unless her entire family died in a car crash just before exams I can't imagine mitigating circumstances that servere

    These are usually generic emails sent to everyone holding an offer at the university at this point, yes the universities have your grades but there will be a lot of people who are close to the grades required but just missed out and they need to decide whether to accept them or not.

    I got tonnes of generic emails like this during this time, and everyone got them, even one person I know who got rejected. It could be a good sign but try not to get your hopes up to much about it.

    Hey guys it's me , basically i know you guys are doing A levels, i'm doing GCSE and getting mine on the 25th. I wanted to ask for your opinion on how you guys will feel if this was GCSE results day - what would your thoughts be compared to getting your A level results. I heard there's somewhat of a jump from the two and would appreciate any replies that i get. thnx.

    it will vary between universities and courses.

    The first phone call will likely be about grades. In some cases that will be all that matters. In others then they'll pass people with the right grades on for consideration (after the phone call) and so they might ring back to have a chat about your interests in the subject. Often that's as much about selling the course and the university to you as it is to check you're suitability.

    It's a good idea to do some research while ringing/before hand about the modules and course structure (and facilities) at different universities. That will help demonstrate that you know what you're applying for and have done your homework about it.
    Thanks for your reply. Btw since clearing opens at 8am on result's day does that mean some students would have a greater advantage of receiving an offer if they receive their results early or on the morning of results day. The reason I ask is because I have to travel quite far to get my results.

    There's no real advantage to getting in early. Some universities will review criteria for making offers at about 3-4pm on results if they've been overwhelmed.

    I don't regret my insurance choice, but I've become so used to the idea of going to my firm and so happy about it that my insurance, even though I like it, kinda sucks.
