    I have decided not to look at Grade Boundaries this year, as last year I did and it got me panicking constantly... The stress was unbearable! 😂😒 So I am not making the same mistake again...

    yup
    Awesome, that's really, really put my mind at ease. In both English and Film I now know I've already got at least 70 each towards the overall 320 UMS from the coursework modules. I was underestimating how big of an impact UMS and AS Levels had. Though I am still cautious, just not bricking myself as much as I was before.

    I cant be the only one who thinks it's silly that the clearing lines open on the same day as results day. They should have the courses listed but not be able to apply to them till the next day imo to give people enough time to consider their choices and make sure they're not rushing into a decision.
    Basically if I fail I want to have enough time to cry about my life before I have to start making important decisions lol

    Do you have any source to support the claim about Durham?

    I just thought it was a good idea but if what you are saying is true I will just stick with my firm.
    If you really like Durham, you might as well try. It is a fantastic institution and if you don't try then you'll have to live the rest of your life thinking what could have been. I applied for Cambridge very optimistically, but I thought do it as I would live the rest of my life thinking I could have got there, but now I know I couldn't have. Anyway I prefer my firm choice of Birmingham. What are you looking to study?

    Ummm generally people are expected to have made a back up plan already by results day about where they plan on going to and then have 9-5 hours to call around and get offers and then decide where they want to go. So you should be making the important decisions now really.

    This doesn't necessarily mean that the grade boundaries will be released at the same time, but this post from last years thread shows that edexcel released them at midnight. Maybe it will be midnight again this year, just wait and see.
