    If I get AAA at AS what do you think my teachers will most likely predict me for A2?
    Depends on how high the As

    Would you recommend looking on UCAS track first or looking at my results first?

    In November I applied for law after a lot of persuasion and pressure from my college, I was given a conditional offer from uni of Liverpool but I dread the thought of having to do the course and I have since around February. I've talked the whole situation through with my parents and they're really supportive of the fact I'd much rather do nursing which is what I wanted to apply for in the first place.
    My problem is, what do I do if I get accepted into the law course? I didn't feel like my exams went well enough for me to reach the required ABB but what if the let me in on lower grades??
    Ring admissions for Liverpool first thing Monday and explain the situation to them and ask them to let you go if you do make it onto their course on results day. It's a little late now so they may not be able to do anything about it as track is down until results day, so if not then ring back on results day if you get in and again ask to be let go. They won't be happy about it probably but just be insistent. Get confirmation in writing and ask for the persons name who you're speaking to so you have reference and proof. I think it can take up to 10 days for them to let you go so in the meantime you can look at courses on clearing that you're interested in or if you're taking a gap year and reapplying then just chill out until then

    Track so that you can react accordingly in the comfort of your own home and getting your grades first won't mean you know your fate whereas UCAS tells you the outcome regardless of grades

    I was quite shocked to see what my teachers predicted me originally. Really shocked. It was ridiculous. It was like GCSE predictions all over again.

    One of my predictions was an A* and I didn't even have to beg for it yet another subject I begged for an A prediction and they wouldn't give it ; it really seems to depend on the teachers. Some will predict whatever you want but others get scared and won't budge on them.

    If I get released by them on Monday am I likely to be able to go through clearing on Thursday do you think?

    If you drop a grade in the subject you want to study at university, how negatively will that reflect on your application? I want to study English (need three As including English) and I got an A last year, A* in my coursework and have done a few essay competitions/EPQ in which I've been rewarded highly. However, during my exam, I was sat directly in front of two invigilators who would not stop chatting and I'm not trying to blame them but it was massively distracting and I barely finished my exam in time. It was a pretty bad one and I think I'm going to have done badly to be honest. Do you think universities will understand that it was just a bad day or will it be the end of my chances? I'm so scared to get the results

    I have a feeling it will be the same for me
    Some teachers will predict me up if I need to but some seem like they wouldn't budge well see how it goes though

    Unfortunately you're gonna look bad if they wanted say AAA and you get a B in the subject you've applied for as most people will drop a grade in another subject but who knows they might still let you in but if they're going through the ' near ' misses and you're the only one who dropped a grade in the actual degree subject then you could end up at the bottom of the pile but you have no idea how many other people have dropped a grade and whether it was in the degree subject or something else ? You'll still look better than those who drop more than a grade so it could be worse. Just wait and see what happens. Really hope you get into somewhere you'll enjoy

    Well my French teacher said I was easily capable of an A* and given that I got 196/200 at AS I was very surprised to be predicted an A but I changed it myself with my tutor. Same for further maths. Physics I was predicted a B which is fair enough because I got a B at AS so that was fine. I did bump it up to an A though lol
