    Ah you had bad teachers too? we had to do Feminine Gospels by Duffy, most of which I wasn't a fan of. That section went better than the extract though I literally made the context bits up

    Yeah, one was absolutely terrible. We spent months on one book and so ran out of time for the others. Even then I had to teach most of it myself. She also refused to mark my coursework originally because it was 100 words over. I had no clue what I was doing and wanted a bit of direction! Oh I see! I made up a lot of my last one

    What makes it worse, is that there always seems to be issues with marking in English Lit!

    true :') but I would have a souvenir from this *distressing* time :P
    I guess so, 'souvenir' would be an interesting take on it.

    Is there any way we can sticky this or make it show up everywhere? So people stop asking the same questions.

    When will track update?
    Between 6-8am. Emails will be sent in waves starting at 8:10am.

    TRACK WILL NOT UPDATE AT MIDNIGHT, IF YOU THINK IT WILL. FINE. WASTE YOUR NIGHT ON IT :bigsmile:

    When are grade boundaries released?
    OCR and Edexcel: 12am Wednesday - 12am Thursday (Likely they'll be out when you wake up, so just sleep )

    AQA: Wednesday (Again, after midnight though, but when you've woken up)

    CCEA+WJEC: Thursday (WJEC in my experience update after 8am with their raw mark conversion)

    Results or Track?
    Depends on when your college opens, it is personal preference and entirely up to you.

    Will my firm accept me with A*AB when my offer is AAA?
    If your track says unconditional, you're in. If it says rejected, you're not. If it says conditional, phone in! (also, you can probably phone with a rejection too).

    Now, A*AB is equivalent in terms of UCAS points but your university may not accept that. Chances are track will have told you anyway. Phone up if you receive these grades.

    It also depends what the B grade is in, if you're an engineer and the B is is Maths, chances are they'll say no. And say the A* is in Biology, again. Chances are slim, if at all existent.

    Rejected: Call up. (slimmer chance)
    Unconditional: Celebrate.
    Conditional: Call up.
    We've got all of this covered in various places in the guidance that's already available, but I've put an amended version of this into the OP.

    I'm not sure Durham ever enter clearing and adjustment, sorry

    Unless that's your insurance?
    I know they dont officially enter clearing, but i have heard they unis do allow you to phone direct and look for places. I know other good unis have done this before. Also pharmacy is new there so there maybe a chance!

    We don't have secrets in my family really and she would try her best not to tell me but I think her facial expressions would easily give it away

    Could someone please clear something up for me? What is coming out tomorrow? Mark schemes or grade boundaries? Is this for all exam boards? Sorry if this is a stupid question or one that has been asked many times before. Just really panicking.

    Don't worry bro, according to some extremely knowledgeable posters on here AS results don't matter at all!
