    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?

    My head of year submitted my application and she asked me what predicted grades I wanted to enter... I could have said anything!
    Should've put in A*A*A* and I applied for the very top courses!

    if i ring up my insurance tomorrow and ask them to reject me so i can be in clearing if i don't meet my firm offer then do you think they'll sort it in time for results day ? I've been thinking long and hard and I'd rather go to another uni through clearing and I have about 3 in mind that i will be ringing up....

    They should definitely have time, they'll just put it in your responce that they have rejected you.

    What I want to be: 1
    What I'll probably end up being: 2

    I'm really concerned as to what everybody else has got, and theres a good chance I wont see a lot of people again, so I'll try and talk to everyone but idk how to do that without sounding boastful (I'm 100% sure I've got an A* and 50% sure my other two are A*A, according to unofficial markschemes).

    Ring them and ask if they can release you on results day as that's what you want. I have heard that it can take them weeks to do so and that could lead to nearly all places in clearing being taken. If you're very lucky then it'll be prompt on results day. Hey but then again who knows? Your firm could confirm your place. I wish you luck.

    You can try but be prepared for them to tell you to bog off until Thursday. They've got a lot to do this week and people who have changed their mind (who don't even know if they have the grades for their firm yet) will now be very low priority.

    Also bear in mind that you're signing up to a much more stressful August/September if you opt for clearing over Manchester. Most places won't offer accommodation for clearing students so you're committing to house hunting (and possibly spending first year in a shared house) over a guaranteed room in hall at Manchester.

    You used to have an offer from York?
    Well odds are they haven't already updated your track so they just have to say no although obviously it is risky.

    if my firm lets me in then all this worry would've been for nothing and I can look back and laugh but something tells me I will hate my insurance given i want a campus uni and the thought of living in a big city kinda terrifies me ahhh
