    I asked Cardiff to release me into clearing if I end up having to go there (my insurance) and even gave them a formal written request and they still said call them on thursday

    i feel like i'll miss the course I want in clearing if they take too long. Anyone know if Cardiff specifically will be quite quick with this?
    Cardiff is my firm and I've asked them to release/reject me. I got the same response:

    "Thank you for your email. I have forwarded your request to the School for their consideration once we have received the results from UCAS."

    I hope they don't take too long

    I have an inquiry about clearing. Say you get AAB and a university in clearing asks for AAA, would it be worth phoning or will they just reject instantly? i was wondering because surely there can't be that many people in clearing with AAA so they must have to accept people with lower grades to fill the clearing spaces?

    It also seem clearing grade offers are the same as standard offers during July, why wouldn't they be lower?

    PQ
    They would probably prefer people that achieve the stated grade then maybe move on to people that slightly missed it after. You have to remember they probably rejected their own applicants who had missed it to have the clearing spaces. Also there might not be a lot of spaces in clearing.
    They're the same because there will be people in clearing with those grades.

    Ah, I initially wanted to do German instead of psychology, but 6th form did the same thing. Bio was alright for me from what I remember, for chem I can't help but still stink about those mistakes I did (those damn electrode potentials). They changed it halfway into your course!?! Couldn't they at least change it for just the year below you?! I'd be so annoyed :mad: Luckily the content for maths doesn't vastly change between exam boards. Oh no Do you think you'll meet your uni offer though (if uni's where you're going after)
    I agreed to the change of exam board as I do want to improve my AS grade. I really should have concentrated revising A2 maths more but that was that. About uni, I think I might miss by a grade or 2. Uni want ABB grades when I think I got around BBC. If that happens, I might go for foundation year clearing. You?

    I can't even express how utterly inconsolable I will be if it transpires that I've failed to meet the offer conditions for my firm choice. It's got so horrendous that I'm even envisaging what may happen if I miss the offer conditions stipulated by my insurance. :pain:

    Yes, I believe UCL may have places available in adjustment but they don't participate in clearing.
