    Why would you not want to go to the university of Manchester?
    It's my firm choice😊
    I do and I don't ? I'm worried the mad party life will be too much. I want a quiet life and the thought of living in a massive city is kinda scary to me, I'm sure I'll enjoy it but right now it just seems kinda scary lol . I think I'd prefer somewhere more quiet

    When predicting ny grades, my maths and chemistry teachers gave the grades I wanted/needed to make an application to my first choice uni, but initially, my biology teacher didn't (well she was a sub). I talked to my AS biology teacher, told her how my UMS from AS shows it could be likely, and she changed it, and my permanent A2 teacher agreed.

    That said, I know for definite that I've missed the prediction in maths

    Wow thanks for your reply and what a surprise that was! For GCSE most people (including me) revised for the exams a couple weeks before, but comparing that to months and months is just crazy. And of course there's also the fact that getting into unis is stressful especially with so many applications this year! I wish you the very best in what you get and hope that you achieve what you desire, maybe the months of revision may pay off in the end, good luck, 4 days to go!!!
    Yeah, the step up really shocked me too but at AS I found that I left it too late and, even though I still did well, I found that I hadn't revised enough for some papers that really should've been better on my part. A Levels fully took over my A2 year in March/April but it might be worth bearing in mind that I am pretty excessive with it. I know a guy who I can guarantee will be looking at A*/A grades for all three of his A Levels and he'd be playing football in his free time at college whilst I was probably doing past papers....as much as I envy those people I also admire them for being so smart.

    Thanks! I hope you have a good start to your AS year...I'm so nervous now

    I think BBB would be enough considering the grades are not that high to start off with. Hope it all goes well with you ! Geoscience isn't a popular course so you have a good chance !
    Thanks so much. It freaks me out now. Just 4 days until judgement day.

    Still got another year of A-levels to go but I'm just thinking for next year - do entry requirements change when a course is in clearing? I want to do Physics at uni so I looked at some unis in clearing this year to see which unis might be more lenient, etc and I saw that good unis (Bristol, Exeter, King's, Leeds, Southampton, Surrey, York, etc) which usually require AAA for Physics were in clearing. Would they still look for AAA applicants in clearing or would they accept maybe ABB for example?

    Well if this a new spec then yeah, but it depends upon the university.

    Official website but don't be afraid to email up and check. My insurance option wouldn't have been on ucas if it weren't for me asking the uni

    University of Birmingham - uni that accepts anyone as long as you give them that 9K/year.
    My friend got in last year with ADU 🙄. And they give out unconditional offers if u get an A in any of your subjects at AS.

    I got 3 A's at AS and didn't get an unconditional offer, as with any university, it depends on the course you apply for.

    I'm sure that's not true, the unconditionals bit. Have you looked into clearing? What unis do you have in mind?

    Also, what course did you apply for at Ox?

    My head of year submitted my application and she asked me what predicted grades I wanted to enter... I could have said anything!

    For maths I resat C1 externally, will the new result be shown on the results at school?
    Also, I definitely got lower on one of my economic modules that I resat this year, will the new UMS be shown on the results sheet even if it's lower?
