    I agree with you - the likelihood is you will get in a year later anyway. If you think 8 in 11 days is bad, try having all 5 A2 exams in the space of three days
    Bless you haha! It was so depressing seeing my timetable : 6,9,9,10,10,14,14,15๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ (10days - my bad haha)

    Of course you'd have to resit the papers - though I don't get how it is "ridiculous" if it is your dream uni? I worked extremely hard for my Oxford offer though along with the fact that I had 8 exams across 11 days (a lot of clashes) I could not focus and I made a lot of mistakes. It is a risk reapplying to Oxbridge because it can go wrong on so many levels yet I think it's worth it. I'd rather go there than some random uni chosen under pressure.
    I've met a lot of people in a similar situation as you. Sometimes one has to realise that Oxbridge is not the be all and end all. What if you don't get in next year? You may end up wasting your own time. But good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    You could have a B at AS and get an A* by getting 90% averaged across both A2 units. If your ums adds up to 360 out of 400
    Yeah thank you I thought the same for the first part too. But do we have to get an overall of 360, or just 320 out of 400 is enough because it is stated that only an A overall (i.e. 80% UMS which is 320/400) is needed (along with the 90% avg at A2) for an A*??...

    Ikr - I looked at my timetable and I was like you have got to be kidding, I had to rush straight from one exam to the other, but tbh some were a lot worse off. One of my friends had 19 exams (including resits), so I'm not complaining!!

    An A (which is 320 out of 400) plus 90% in your A2 units averaged will be an A*. So an A at AS plus 90% overall in your A2 units will give you at least 360 out of 400 - A*

    Ring the universities you're interested in once you have your results (and speak to your school/college about getting a reference - it might be worth emailing them to ask as your referee is likely to be in tomorrow sorting through results so you'll give them some warning).

    If the universities you like insist you apply via UCAS then you'll also need a personal statement but that shouldn't be difficult to write over the next day.

    UCAS Apply is down at the moment but it'll be up on Thursday to use IF your universities say they need you to apply that way so it's a good plan to be prepared to get it sent off on Thursday.
