    Can I try for adjustment for a course that is not on the clearing list?
    You can ring. Be prepared for a short sharp NO though.

    I've just tried this out and, if I'm not mistaken, it seems to insist that one must get an A in AS (and then of course 90% UMS average in A2) to get an A* overall?...

    I thought we only need 80% UMS average in AS+A2 plus 90% UMS avg in A2 to get an A*?

    So have I made a mistake by saying it doesn't matter if we got an A or not at AS so long it has enough UMS to contribute to that 80% overall then we can get an A* by obtaining 90% across A2? Or is this calculator incorrect in this?...
    honestly I thought it was just me!
    I'm so glad it's the calculator and not my grades lmao. I'm pretty sure it's the calculator

    Grade boundries need to come soon. My only worry is that AEA I don't think my guess is accurate (moderate overestimate) but maths and physics grades are reasonably accurate...mi hope

    This years AEA paper looked really fun. Looked harder then last years I think(I sat that one) I predict boundaries a tad lower then last year like 68 for distinction?

    I'm a bit confused about how clearing works. Do I apply via UCAS on the day, or do I have to phone up each university that has courses on clearing that I'm interested in?

    Quite annoying knowing that they probably let someone who missed a grade in whilst rejecting you but oh well.

    You phone up and get offers from universities (lots of them) and then pick your favourite and refer yourself for that course/university on Track after 3pm. Once the university confirms it you have a new Unconditional Firm.

    You phone up the universities and then enter your favourite one that gave you an offer into UCAS at 3pm. You can only enter one choice at a time, but you get the offers by calling as soon as you have your clearing number.

    5 hours 5 hours 5 hours although I'm not actually worried about maths grade boundaries so I'm not sure why I'm excited.
    I'm more worried about OCR Chemistry.

    Question. When grade boundaries are released, will it be easy to calculate the UMS achieved for a grade not on the boundary, like if 70 is 90 UMS, what would 72 be? I need an average of 91 in FP2 and FP3 for an A* in further maths which I really want.

    The Q8 looked great.
    Aswell as Q1, many people would think it is dead easy but could've been made alot more interesting and testing,inputs and domains/ranges of nested functions is alot more complicated then most people think.
