    ABB hehe

    Did you get MAP bursary too?


    Yeah, I didn't even think 'it's okay, I have my insurance' once when I was working for my exams, I just thought, 'I need to get in my firm, I need to get in my firm, even if it drives me crazy'

    ---------------------
    Firm: A*A*A
    Insurance: ABB

    I used UofM as my insurance too so didn't go there - not sure I would have gotten the bursary though - don't qualify for any at my uni as I don't pay tuition fees (NHS funded course) so that disqualifies me boohoo

    I know you've heard this time and time again, but don't worry, you will be okay.

    Have you tried to call up Warwick, just in case?

    My sis does Nursing at UoM and she gets MAP bursary alongside the NHS one so you would've

    Where do you go to? I'm sorry, I seem to have forgotten

    Down the road at MMU - sad I missed out on the MAP bursary but MMU were the only uni to offer the joint honours course I do and this way I qualify as a speech therapist and get an accredited psychology degree too (just in case I want to change direction later on and do further postgrad studies). At least my debts after 4 years at uni will only be about £10K - thank you NHS. Good luck for Thursday but sure all will be fine

    Well, you're halfway there with the crazy bit (just kidding, of course, though fair enough, you're no doubt under an increasing amount of stress the closer it gets)

    (Original post by naz.97)


    I hope so! My requirements are AAA, and I reckon I got A*AB , unless I managed to scrape an A in Geography
    Best of luck, hopefully they accept you in either case.

    Does anyone know how long it takes for Universities to release you into clearing if you reject them? And could I call like now to tell them I no longer wish to be on the course?
    On average it takes 48 hours from first contact. For some people where they can't get through to their university on results day (all the phones went down at Bristol last year and the lines everywhere are busy) or where their university isn't very cooperative it has taken up to a fortnight to arrange.

    Call them tomorrow first thing but be prepared for an unhelpful response - they're extremely busy right now.

    My course is no longer in clearing at my firm uni
    And now my backup course has also been removed..
    On top of that, I don't have an insurance because I got my offer through ucas extra
    Really don't know what to do for my Plan B
    Clearing lists over the weekend are unreliable while universities process results. Check again on Monday evening/Tuesday morning. The courses listed then are what will be printed in the telegraph so universities try to get the listings right by then.

    I am a bit confused about clearing process. Am I meant to sign up for clearing prior to results day in anticipation of not getting the grades I need, or do I only sign up on the day after getting results?

    Some moments I'm confident thinking "A*A*B yeah I should be able to get that" but then others it's "my offer is BBB what if I don't make it?" D:
    Such a mixture of emotions because of how close it is.. I'm really hoping I can scrape a B in AQA history because HIS3M was not my friend good luck to everyone!

    It could take a few weeks for them to release me into clearing? What? That doesn't even make sense. Would anyone recommend me ringing my Uni tomorrow and asking me to be rejected now as I definitely do not want to go there.
    People on TSR havé said that but others have said that they'll do it on the day. I'm also gonna be ringing up tomorrow to ask to be rejected so interesting to see what they say .....

    You don't need to do anything. If your firm and insurance reject you then your clearing details will show on track.

    What is the time for AS edexcel result on 18th aug?
    The time of results day differs depending on your exam centre. Some are stupidly early in the morning (not like anyone would be sleeping the night before anyway) whilst some are at 9am. I think mines at 8:30am
