    Don't you mean CHEM4 is two marks lower?
    No, higher. I expected CHEM4 to have 120 UMS as 88/100, turns out it's 90/100.

    I heard uni's can take as many students as possible
    Like they have an unlimited number
    Is that supposed to be sarcastic?

    I blame the teacher
    He should be able to control the class
    Kick them out if they are messing about
    I don't blame the teacher, he's really good. He's gotten half of the class upto a consistent A but the other half just don't want to cooperate.

    He can't kick them out either because it's against the policy of the school - sixth form students are expected to remain in lessons and do work regardless.

    It depends on the course and the university.

    There's practical limits on how many students a course can take - but even in clearing a university knows they can make 2-5 offers for every place available (in some courses/universities) because not everyone who gets a clearing offer from them will choose that option.
    I see
    I'm looking at SOAS for clearing law. They say they have limited spaces on their website and their lines open from 7am tomorrow
    I get my results at 11 so I'm scared the places will fill up

    I thought this. Got a few UMS into an A last year, so really needed to ace this years exams to get an A. But boundaries have gone up😓

    I'm now pretty sure I'll miss my firm offer. But edexcel maths is nice so I should hopefully get into my insurance. Oh well... Now I just need to get my parents ready for my inevitable failure

    No
    Universities can't have unlimited spaces. They haven't got the funding or the facilities for an unlimited number of people.

    Yeah there isnt an official limit but they cant just take in masses of clearing students - there wouldnt be enough facilities, accommodation etc. So unis will set their own limits on how many clearing places they have.

    Well, PHYA4 and PHA5A are exactly as I predicted with 120 UMS being 65/75.

    CHEM4 is two marks higher, CHEM5 is two marks higher.
    The ISA boundaries are disgusting...
    i didn't do chemistry or ISAs so i didn't realise, sorry :/ i'm on about physics, maths, further maths and german which are all really quite nice

    That is quite late - are there no options to allow you to collect earlier?

    Places wont fill up that quickly though - noone can officially refer themselves on Track until 3pm. Until that point no clearing place is official.

    Nobody can actually add a clearing place til 3pm so although lines open earlier people will be getting multiple offers at this point and not all of them will choose SOAS

    If you have the grades then call them, there is no way to know how kany other people are calling or exactly how many spaces there are but if you call before 3pm you probably have a good chance
