    So surely it would only be 13 days left if results day was on 18th July instead of 18th August?

    I'm late to the party :giggle:
    I've done A2 English Literature, English Language and History (and General Studies) and I'm hoping to go to Durham to study law My AS grades were AAAB (I took Maths at AS) with the B in History. For Durham I need A*AA and I'm predicted A*A*A*(A*), and while I think I did pretty well in the exams, I don't think I've got an A* in English Language I'm still super nervous about Results Day though!

    IB students are so lucky that their results day is so early... I can't wait another 44 days!
    The downside is that
    a) they take the IB which is not for everybody
    b) if they miss their offer grades, even slightly (or in a lot of cases on a technicality - they'll get or exceed the overall score but miss a subject grade slightly) then universities often leave them in limbo until the A level results come out....and then reject them late. So while they SHOULD have had a headstart and a chance to find somewhere in clearing before the mad rush in August the universities treat them like crap and an insurance policy and then disadvantage them :mad:

    Hi

    I read somewhere that the first Clearing lists come out today and seeing as I have nothing else to do I thought I'd look for potential universities to phone on Results Day... do you know when the list comes out? I tried looking earlier but...

    Checked the clearing list and my firm and insurance aren't in there for maths... does this mean they're less likely to be lenient this year if they think they're going to fill up their places terrified now tbh

    Beaten to it

    I am very sceptical about the listings for a number of universities on there - UCAS will just carry everything across unless a university actively closes a course. There's a lot of courses I KNOW are oversubscribed that almost certainly will disappear from the list over the next day or so (basically as soon as an applicant rings up and says they want to apply and they realise their flagship course is in the listings).

    I'd hold off drawing any conclusions about which courses are in clearing until the end of the week (unless it's listed on a university website as well)

    Clearing listings don't tell you ANYTHING about what decisions will be made on results day. There's so many variables involved that a course being in or not in clearing doesn't indicate anything.
