    Touché, did they get an answer?

    Anyone know anything about WJEC and when they release grade boundaries? I noticed that people have said OCR, edexcel and AQA tomorrow, but nothing about WJEC!

    Can there not be some sort of sticky...

    So people don't ask the same question repeatedly?
    When do grade boundaries come up?
    When does track update?
    I haven't looked anywhere to find out for myself so I'm asking again even though it has been asked on every page of this thread










    when do grade boundaries become available?

    what time does track update? will it update at midnight?

    What time can I check track?

    It's usually about 09:30
    Sorry, that's clearing and the ucas hotline! It's around 7ish but if you missed out by, say one grade, you may still have been accepted but it will take longer to process.

    I think WJEC boundaries are on results day.

    Haha, yep! Including getting absolutely hammered to either celebrate your results or to make sure you erase all memory of them.

    Oh that's swell. I really wanted to study in London but I've settled with the idea that I can move there when I'm older and hopefully richer. Thank you I hope so! My offer is for Psychological and Behavioural Sciences at Cambridge. Well, that's the official term for it. I don't understand why they just can't call it Psychology. I'd feel less of an arse then when saying what I want to be studying.
    haha of course
    ahh thats cool, wow cambridge! I visited there once, lovely place
    aha just tell everyone its psychology, they wont know any better
    best of luck!!

    What are your grade expectancies and in what subjects?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Well I am doing AS so am trying to not realistically look at my predicted grades. I was predicted CCCB but I am sure I can get ABBB, an A in psychology or geography, then B's in geography/psychology history and general studies.

    And good luck to you too! I'd be worried if you could do such an important kind of course with a bachelors :lol: Going by your course, I'm gonna guess that you took Chemistry, Biology and maths this year? Am i right?
    thanks
    ikr haha.
    spot on, except I also did business studies
    bet you did maths, chemistry, physics, maybe further maths?

    Ah!
    AS leaves you with ample amount of change to surpass those stupid predictions, like they know how hard you really work... LOL!

    When will track update?
    Between 6-8am. Emails will be sent in waves starting at 8:10am.

    When are grade boundaries released?
    OCR and Edexcel: 12am Wednesday - 12am Thursday (Likely they'll be out when you wake up, so just sleep )

    AQA: Wednesday (Again, after midnight though, but when you've woken up)

    CCEA+WJEC: Thursday (WJEC in my experience update after 8am with their raw mark conversion)

    Results or Track?
    Depends on when your college opens, it is personal preference and entirely up to you.

    Will my firm accept me with A*AB when my offer is AAA?
    If your track says unconditional, you're in. If it says rejected, you're not. If it says conditional, phone in! (also, you can probably phone with a rejection too).

    Now, A*AB is equivalent in terms of UCAS points but your university may not accept that. Chances are track will have told you anyway. Phone up if you receive these grades.

    It also depends what the B grade is in, if you're an engineer and the B is is Maths, chances are they'll say no.

    Rejected: Call up. (slimmer chance)
    Unconditional: Celebrate.
    Conditional: Call up.

    Don't know about 'all the time', but I remember it was in clearing last year, as was plenty of other places actually. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that the new fees were only brought in last year, so that was a bit unusual.

    speaking of clearing, have any unis released a list of courses that they will have on for clearing?
    Some have. There's a thread called 'early clearing lists' that has all the links of the ones who have.

    will my firm accept A*AB if my offer is AAA or will my firm accept my offer if any set of grades don't satisfy the requirement of the uni but 1 grade is better than expected and is equivalent to the offer grades

    I'd expand Robbie's suggestion to just include information on all outcomes - what to do if you're accepted, rejected, or it remains 'conditional'.

    The answer to that of course is "maybe".

    They CAN reject you if you miss the strict offer conditions. There's a good chance that they wont but it will depend on whether they have space to accept you or not (and also whether the B grade is in a subject that they think you need an A grade in to do well on their course).
