    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.
    I think im 1 or 2 ums off its in maths

    Hi, a question - if you miss your offer by a grade, should you phone the university admissions team for your firm or the university's course admission to ask if you can still be accepted.

    Also, do you recommend calling univeristies with courses which match your grades on results day and asking for a place, or do they have to be listed on clearing for you to get a place?

    You should only call if they are still shown as 'Conditional offer' on UCAS. If they have rejected you on Track then that decision is final and a phone call will not change it unless you have got a remark.

    All courses with places on results day will be in Clearing, so probably not worth calling universities unless they are listed there.

    Thought I'd try and get to sleep at 1:30 last night.

    Ended up having a small panic attack and had to just sit up and watch Youtube on my phone until 3am.

    These next two days are gonna be the death of me.

    Cambridge care about both step and A2 grades... I know one friend who got A*A*A*A* at A2 and missed her step offer and got rejected and one who completely aced step but only got A*AAB at A2 and also get rejected. With maths at Cambridge they give out more offers than places as they know some people wont meet offers, and hence if you miss you often end up rejected. Its kinda harsh... But maybe you should have revised more than the night before.

    I think you can start calling straight away but you can't actually add a clearing choice until 3pm :/

    If you have your results and your clearing number on Track then you can start calling straight away.

    Without one or the other then you're going to get told to go away by the people on the phone.

    You can only REFER yourself officially to a university/course in clearing at 3pm - but by that point you should have at least 3 offers under your belt (start with an easy dead cert on the phones then try for some riskier options, if you start to feel a bit annoyed then go back and get another easy offer from somewhere with lower entry requirements).

    DO NOT RUSH into a decision - once you refer yourself on Track it's a massive ball ache to reverse that. Make sure you ask about accommodation, clearing open days/visits, look at student union websites/facebook pages and find out about the details of the course (modules, how much flexibility there is, opportunities for placements/years abroad, how much of your assessment is exam based, course contact time etc etc).
