    I've got an offer for LSE doing accounting and finance with a conditional offer of AAA. I'm pretty sure I got a B in maths, but I reckon my other two grades in psychology and sociology are A* and A*
    Do you think they'd let me in with A*A*B instead of AAA - the conditions of the offer were not specific to any subjects btw... Thanks

    Unfortunately it is unlikely, LSE are very harsh, but there is no point speculating! They might decide to be kinder on Thursday, it just depends on each separate application.

    Does anyone know if my EPQ results will be on my results slip with my other subjects? I took it alongside my A2's this year.

    In my LSE offer pack it said equivalent grades are not accepted, it must be your offer and I doubt they'll be too lenient I reckon I've missed my offer but I'm okay with going to my insurance

    Sorry for tagging you, but I was wondering whether it's possible to call a university now to be considered for another course with lower grades (that is already in clearing)? I have an offer of A*AA for English at Exeter but really think I'm more likely to get AAA! They have Art History and English for AAA-AAB and I adore the course and university. If I did get AAA I would seriously consider being released from my insurance to go for this course. But of course, it would be much easier to get a changed course instead! What do you think?

    Have you tried it on your phone? It should work by using the news app or even just googling the headlines and it'll come up. :dontknow: I skim read a few and they seemed to be pretty generic and focussed on the marking reforms. There was some stuff about boys choosing subjects that generated more top grades than the subjects girls tend to choose - and more entries in maths/further maths resulting in more top grades being anticipated.
    Yeah thank you I've seen them now (actually @She-Ra kindly pm-ed me the articles). You're right those are just generic things we pretty much already knew lol.

    Dreading it, does anyone know if UCAS can still change my application over the phone while track is down? Want to remove my insurance now because I really don't want to go and I'm worried there will be a delay getting them to release me on Thursday that might cause me to miss out on the clearing place I want 😭 I know I've left it really late but after visiting my insurance I'd been dead set on not going to uni if I don't meet my offer, it's only when I got an email about a course in clearing that I really liked the look of that I've decided to go for clearing instead
    It's too late now - UCAS couldn't make those changes anyway - you ALWAYS need to speak to your universities directly first. UCAS are just the middle men.

    You can email your insurance (use the admissions email address) and let them know that if your firm reject you then you will not be taking up a place with them and ask instead that they place you in clearing ASAP. That way if you're one of the few (8%) who end up with your insurance on results day you can phone up and they already have written notice of your wishes.

    It's too late to make changes I'm afraid (and even if it wasn't you need to speak to your universities directly not UCAS - UCAS can do very little at this point).

    There's very little chance you'll end up with your insurance choice. Only about 8% of people do - because most firm choices will accept grades below the offer (often a lot lower).

    It is worth emailing your insurance today (email their admissions office) and explaining that if your firm reject you then you would not want to take up a place with them and would like to be placed in clearing ASAP. That means when you ring on Thrusday morning (IF you miss your firm grades and IF your firm reject you) then you can tell them they already have intructions in writing about your wishes.

    You can check it but it will be offline that early. UCAS wont make track live until their phonelines are open. Their phonlines open at 7:30am.
    Get more sleep!

    Call them up (and follow up with an email) and let them know that if you're unsuccessful with your first choice course you would like to be considered for alternatives (especially the one you prefer) before they reject you.

    TBH I doubt you'd be rejected with AAA for an A*AA English offer at Exeter unless they've had a bumper year which given their VC is all over the press saying how difficult this year will be for universities doesn't seem likely
