    There's no need to be rude. She was only offering advice based on what she knows. She doesn't claim to be an admissions tutor and know everything.
    It's extremely irresponsible of you to have repeatedly left revision to the morning of or night before an exam. That's your problem and no one else's.
    But I hope you still do well and grade boundaries are in your favour. Good luck

    The advice was stupid and completely false.

    Anyone else feeling so nervous today?
    Yes! I definitely consider myself a lot more nervous today considering my friend offered me a lift to and from the school on Thursday - just the thought of results day makes me feel sick now

    Yh I know it is I didn't blame anyone else for that. I knew the moment i got my offer I wasn't going to meet it since I knew I won't get an A* in Physics.
    Yeh I know I am irresponsible and I don't expect them to take me hence why I am preparing for clearing.
    Thanks, gl to you aswell.

    Yeah, I think I got between 88-90 in CHEM4 and 90-92 in CHEM5. I think 88 will be full UMS in CHEM4 and 92 will be full UMS in CHEM5, but...

    Time will tell!!

    Hi, my original offer for computer science is BBB at Aston university. However i think i'm going to get BBC, is there a chance they will accept me with a lower grade.
    It's very common for applicants to be accepted with one (or sometimes many more) dropped grades.

    There are no guarantees though - if they are overwhelmed with applicants who have met their offers or they know that applicants with a C in that subject tend to fail then you will be rejected.

    If they can fit you in and think you can pass the course then you'll be accepted.

    Sorry about that.
    I thought her comment at the end although true was said to be rude aswell.
    Guess no one notices that.

    Hi there, I failed to obtain an offer from my firm for economics as i failed a maths exam which was required for me to get in. I then asked if i could switch to a course which was listed in the clearing vacancies and they said they would phone me back and it was probable. They didnt ring so this morning I rang up to ask to ask for an update and they basically said the course was now full despite being on clearing still. Do you think they are rejecting me because my A level results aren't good enough since ucas have my results and they have access to them?
