    What are the exact words that will be used by UCAS when you get in, "Unconditional"?

    What if you don't get in, will it say "Rejected"?
    Track will change to unconditional, or might say successful.

    Basically, if it has changed from 'conditional', you'll know by the phrasing whether you've been accepted or rejected

    Same here hopefully for my other coursework that I didn't do too well in
    Ah what did you get? Ours was out of 60 and I only got 29 and I just wish I'd got a bit more on one of them like on the Shakespeare side I got 17 which is not bad, I just wish either that was like 19 or something or for my educating rita one to go up cos I only got 12 on that :/ sucks!

    I think it's fantastic.
    AWESOME!
    Some universities people don't pay attention to; I can be a culprit of this at times, I'm not going to lie...
    I am glad you love it...

    I know that it changes to 'unconditional' if you get in. Not 100% about the wording if you're rejected but it should be pretty obvious.

    Every exam has a slight change in terms of grade boundaries as the difficulty tends to change slightly. But by how much depends on the performance of every student. But good luck anyway.
    Yeah it depends on the performance on everyone in England doesn't it? & the level of difficulty for certain grades! Thanks! You too :o:$

    I saw this article (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-23667965) on the Beeb and thought the results day a-level bashing had started early!

    Interesting figures though..

    Did anyone here do ocr economics last year? (For AS) did you get what you expected or were shocked by your grade?
    I just did mine at AS. Found the International Economy exam reasonable, had a couple of problems with some evaluative points but it shouldn't be too problematic. However, the Micro paper was horrible, the 18 marker on regulations was like something from Satan- really not confident with that side. With the grade boundaries being so tight for this course, I fear I'm going drop significantly. I mean we need 48 marks to get an A and the 43 to get a B. :rolleyes:

    I honestly don't know why you would apply to a university you didn't want to go to.
    I know alot of people who are only happy going to one university.

    I don't tend to get nervous until right at the moment. I can generally get a good night's sleep, but wake up on the day nervous.

    thanks
    ikr haha.
    spot on, except I also did business studies
    bet you did maths, chemistry, physics, maybe further maths?
    Haha, I did not expect business to be in there as well! :laugh: You got half of them, only i took Lit instead of Chemistry(I don't know what i was thinking), and couldn't fit the full Further maths course into my timetable
