    Mostly people who want to study medicine/in oxbridge/courses requiring AAA and above with D or C in most subjects.
    Somehow I cannot understand people with logic fallacy and the deduction of "Because I work hard, So I deserve to study in XXX"

    Working hard is neither sufficient nor necessary for archiving good grades, however I think the following is true

    Have low intelligence is not necessary but a sufficient condition for archiving bad grades

    can anyone here offer me some advice ?

    I've just rang up my insurance uni asking them to release me so that i can use clearing if my firm rejects me, and they said they can't do anything and to ring up again on thursday.

    I've been told however it can takes unis days to release you into clearing and i know clearing places for the good unis go lightening fast so I'm just thinking should i ring up the unis and tell them that I'm waiting for my insurance to release me and if so would they ' hold ' my place ??


    thanks so much in advance
    That's awful!!! Obviously you know they shouldn't but I guess it can't hurt to ask. TBH I'm supprised they can't do a thing because I'd have thought it would be as simple as rejecting you instead of accepting you on track when they update it.

    well I asked them and they just said to ring back on thursday when i have my results and i was like ' so you can't do anything before ' and they just said no and that was that... unfortunately it isn't just as simple as them ticking reject or accept -__- I'm really quite fuming about all of this !!

    i want to go to york now instead of my insurance but looks like i could be heading for a gap year now cause I'm pretty certain i have met my insurance grades yet they won't even release me till the 18th and even then i will have to ring up and ask them to do it whilst the clearing places are going so stressed about this but i guess it is my fault for not asking earlier

    Sorry I don't agree with the first part working hard can get you good grades however I do agree there needs to be at least some form of intelligence

    I'm sure if you met your insurance grades Nottingham will accept you because it's only a one grade miss

    It does indeed! I did AQA English Literature and English Language Oh that's really good! Well done! Good luck - I hope that you get what you need!
    I need around 280 points for my course - I'm hopefully going to be studying Primary Education at Bishop Grosseteste!
    Aha thank you and best of luck to you as well I'm sure you'll meet those entry requirements! I've never heard of that uni :P

    Thank you! I hope so too! Ah it's the smaller one in Lincoln, you have the big one towards the centre and then Bishops is at the top of the hill... it's small and cosy and it has more of a homely feel to it!
