    Why are people messing around in the class is exactly what I've wanted to know for the whole year. Our teacher has just focused on the people who want to pass because he considers it a waste of time to control the class when he could be spending those 3-4 minutes clearing up some confusion from one of us on the front row.
    I blame the teacher
    He should be able to control the class
    Kick them out if they are messing about

    Do uni clearing places fill up or are places unlimited?
    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.

    Like they have an unlimited number

    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...
    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 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.

    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'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
