    Are they mad?
    I think I got A*AA but hoping for A* in maths to make A*A*A.
    Hey what can you do ey made a stupid choice not putting warwick as my insurance.
    I needed 4A*s for cambridge and
    A*A*AA for imperial wariwck was A*AA which was practically guaranteed so I have screwed myself over so yh.

    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
    Hi
    Basically I have most probably got A*A*AB which meets course requirements for nearly all courses and can I go to adjustment with these grades even if my firm and insurance reject me?

    I think his offers are Imperial and Cambridge. He is on "gap year" and already had two A*s, but he messed up badly this year due to just being lazy apparently. Ngl sounds less like a gap year and more like redoing two a levels.
    Yh bro ur right.
    Redid physics.
    Redone 1 a level.
    Further additional maths i tried this year.
    Resat the year, redoin the year, gap year. Idec.

    You only get the button to use adjustment if your firm accepts you - and you'll only be eligible if you meet and exceed your firm offer conditions.

    If your firm and insurance reject you you'll be placed in clearing and aren't going to struggle for offers with those grades. IF you end up in clearing I strongly recommend you play the field and hold off on referring yourself officially until Friday afternoon at the earliest....even universities that say they aren't in clearing might be bending over backwards for someone with A*s and As who rings on Friday after the phones go quiet.

    I'm also applying for Imperial Maths. If you got A*A*AB, I think that you have a very good chance of being accepted if they are aware of your AEA and STEP. If not, I'm not going to lie, you've really ****ed up :/ have you contacted Warwick to see if they could help you? What were the exam boards for your exams this year?

    Adjustment IS clearing in reality. The only university that takes part in adjustment and not Clearing is UCL - and even they will use Clearing for "procedural expediency" (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/srs/academic-ma...d_Practice.pdf ) ie if an amazing candidate approaches them who is in clearing and not adjustment for some reason then they'll open up a course for that specific candidate.

    Yh i didnt revise at all this year. I did M4 properly as a module and U4 Physics. So yh. I could get 4A*s but it is not that unlikely. I either get A* in AFM or a B since I have met the A* condition with M3-5 definately as M3/4 are definately at 100ums. But I need 480/600 and i didnt recise for D1 and did slightly worse on D2 then needed(need like 5 ums and A* is done lol) then S4 i got what a needed.
    U4 physics felt like full UMS but U5 went slightly worse and feel like i made stupid errors and lost an easy A*.
    Yeh imperial said they will consider it since I have some other things I emailed imperial about which will help me alot i reckon.

    I'm really anxious, as are a lot of people, but especially for my maths result. I did edexcel and C3 was my most confident exam of all my exams, really wanted to smash it because I badly want an a*. Thought I'd done that when I got out of the hall but then my friends were talking about a Q9, which I didn't know existed. I felt so terrible! So annoyed with myself! It even made me feel sh*t for my chem 5 exam the next day. But my mum and my brother pulled me through it (what great people) and I had to pick myself up and demolish C4. I think I did that but I have cut it so fine, genuinely don't know if I've actually got the a*. I'd be fine if I found it hard or I ran out of time, but the fact I completely missed out a question is what is SO annoying!!!!

    You may be thinking "what a bast*rd complaining about not getting an a*", and I completely see where you'd be coming from, but this is potentially worth thousands of £££ from the university. So that brown envelope is gonna be the death of me.

    Also if you're just counting down the hours, just watch the olympics because that's really taken my mind off of results day. Come on Team GB!
    Believe it or not I had a mate who did the exact same as you, and I felt awful when I had to tell him that there were 9 questions not 8. But what I told him and what I'll tell you is that actually there's still a lot of hope. The A* this year I believe will be about 66 (slightly easier than last year's paper which was 65), and I believe the last question was worth around 8 marks. So actually, if you did smash the rest of the C3 paper, chances are you got nearly 90UMS. And if you did "demolish" C4, chances are you've got the A*.

    Good luck for results day 🙏🏾

    UCL isn't exactly the best of Unis for maths tbh

    I wasn't offering maths specific advice - just explaining that adjustment and clearing are interchangeable in the eyes of all universities - except UCL (and even for that exception they will admit people via clearing they just don't advertise in clearing)

    AQA is relieving at 8AM tomorrow.
    All others any time tomorrow before 6PM is a safe bet.
