    Could this mean I'm in or is it just a standard answer. It's just the "you will receive..." bit makes it sound like I got in

    wht kind of preparation shd i be doing before results day??
    i did some and looking up on clearing stuff
    but im not sure how to be prepared

    only doing work makes me less afraid of results coming loll
    That is good prep for now, all you can do at the moment is prepare yourself for the fact that things may not work out how you had hoped but know that it isn't the end of the road and there is always something you can do (clearing, retakes etc...) this anticipation is the worst bit and I'm sure everything will work out. Try and distract yourself from dwelling on it and stressing yourself out, when you have free time watch a new TV series or read a book I find that you get immersed in the fictional world and you don't think about results day.

    seems standard to me, but you never know Uni's do know our results now I believe.

    Exactly how I feel. My course entered clearing on Saturday. I've been freaking out since.
    I'm sure you'll be fine. Guessing your course needs decently high marks? Not everyone can get those, but if you believe you did well you should get them yourself, right?

    ...right?

    What do i do when I've accepted an unconditional and i dont mind going to a uni. But i want to go to another uni (since i think i done better than i thought). Is there anyway to get out of an unconditional on results day and accepted another uni?
    . You would have to call them up and ask to be released from the contract you have agreed to by accepting the offer I believe. They may not release you from it however so you'll have to see what happens.

    Hey people! I've applied for biomedicine and my firm is Brighton for BBB. I'm not sure if I want that anymore. Could I go to a better uni i.e somewhere like liverpool or Manchester with the same grades through clearing? If they have spaces? Or would those unis want the grade requirements that they had in the first place?
    Manchester and loads of other places were off clearing for biomedicine and biochemistry the last time I checked (2 days ago). It seems to be a really popular course

    a lot of the clearing courses were decided waaaay before Uni's got results guys, Uni's aren't capped on how many places they can give out so lots of courses will be on clearing as the uni will make more money. If anything they may be more lenient with accepting people who just missed the offer if they wish to fill up the course.

    Unis aren't capped by facilities actually. Plus STEM subjects are loss making for unis so they don't go up for making money.

    I feel the last part of the Vectors question caught out a lot of strong candidates as lots came out the exam quite worried despite the fact it wasn't a truly difficult paper. I'd argue the grade boundaries will be very similar to last year because 69 or 70 for an A* is rather quite high and something I only ever see with FP2 and S2 so please can we pray :P

    . Well obviously not all subjects fit that criteria. I assume you meant that they ARE limited by facilities which is obviously true, when I said they are not capped on how many places they can give out I was referencing the recent relax in rules meaning that universities if they have the facilities to do so can give out far more places than in previous years due to a removal of caps previously placed on them. Regardless, my point was that people shouldn't panic simply because their course is clearing.
