    Near every results day, I get obsessed with a Lana Del Rey song.

    Sums it up, given how depressing her music is

    Yes, lucky for us AS students but however, since l want to go to top unis, l need my presicted grades to be AAB-or the B to be an A.
    Don't worry! My AS grades were ADD and because of how well I was doing in 2nd year and thanks to doing some exam resits (which you won't even have to do to pull your grades up), my predicted grades went through at A*AB and I got an offer from every uni I applied to . As long as you prove in 2nd year to all your teachers that you are going to do far better, your AS grades shouldn't make too much difference providing they aren't massively low below your target. Good luck anyway!

    Who keeps going on to UCAS Track hoping that through some major screwup your Unis have uploaded their choices before embargo? It's entirely futile but it gives me something to do as I wait for the inevitable.

    2 offers were from University of Leeds, one for microbiology and one for biological sciences which I firmed. My standard offer from them is AAB, and my Access to Leeds offer is BBB.

    I also applied to University of Lincoln, University of Leicester and my local uni Teeside, just in case anything went horribly wrong :'). Fair enough if you're going for higher up universities but for me I still got AAB offers with my ADD AS grades :3.

    Yeah I applied and some how got an offer despite a dreadful interview . Pretty sure the interview panel had a split decision because my offer's different from everyone else - A*AAA (A* Bio or Chem)

    I must admit, I'd have rather gone anywhere but there.. Just really disliked the course and the campus, besides it's not particularly good for what I want to do anyway.. I had my heart set on Leeds so the other offers were more fillers. If it's your local Uni beware! Lots of colleges in the area like to force you to go to their open days and such.. I got sick of the place in the end :'(

    I was really casual about my GCSE results day, now I'm *****ing myself for A level results day to a point that I might just have an aneurysm.

    Congrats! Why do you think your interview went dreadfully? That's quite a high offer tbh, I'd expect an offer of AAAC for 4 A levels. My interview went so badly, in my feedback they mentioned I was too nervous three times lol. I hope you get the grades, fingers crossed for you! Btw how do you feel your exams went?
