    You don't know your grades yet.

    What subject are you hoping to study?
    Computer Science, i've wanted to read up on it throughout the summer but the thought of not getting to Uni has just made me avoid it as it seems pointless

    I'm literally going to be an example of that paragraph if I do get accepted by my firm.

    I think if you have extenuating circumstances 'on your side' (I use that lightly because obviously it's better for practically anyone if those circumstances don't come to play in the first place) and your uni still take you then clearly they think you are worth their time. And you also don't know for 100% fact if everyone else is higher achieving than you. Personally, if you think you could've got the grades minus circumstances, or you know you've worked the hardest you possibly could, then why don't you deserve that place? If you think you deserve it then go..but be willing to work hard in your first year if you do feel like everyone else there is going to be higher achieving.

    Also, I'm pretty certain even if they take you that you can resit a subject whilst attending uni, but it'd be as a private candidate and you'd have to organise a centre to do that at yourself...someone would have to clarify that for you though
    Your last paragraph: You can, but someone I spoke to on here (TSR) said that you risk taking away so much time from your first year work that it affects the latter's performance and it becomes not worth it. If it's just one exam you've done horrendously in, then I suppose you could do it.

    I'm concerned because a C or two could affect my chances of entry into graduate programmes after uni; I also wouldn't want it to crop up as a point of discussion/concern in job interviews later on. I might ask to defer if that's the case.

    You definitely can get worse combinations, in my opinion, than AAC/D e.g. BBB/BBC - you'd have missed your requirements by 3/4 grades and may have to retake all your A levels?

    What are your firm entry requirements, by the way?

    Aqa A psychology students- what do you think about the grade boundaries (A2)?
    I think PSYA4 is decent - 61 for an A* which I am DESPERATE for, or at least an A (that's the only Psychology result I need, as I took PSYA3 last year - this year is a retake for PSYA4). But I mean, the annoying thing about AQA Psychology is you think you've done well but their making is sooo harsh

    Ohhh for computer science then Swansea is an amazing backup choice - they hit WELL above their weight for employment post degree, have work placement options available and a foundation year if things go horribly wrong, their students rate them really highly, they're pretty good at offering accommodation to clearing intakes, the campus is lovely with some awesome new developments, lovely old buildings and the closest beach to any university campus in the UK (have a look http://www.swansea.ac.uk/virtual-tour-stand-alone/ ).

    Can someone help me in explaining the protocol when it comes to taking up an AS this year? Basically, I want to take up an AS and an EPQ but I'm not too sure how. Should it be from my school or privately etc?

    Is it just me that's fuming about CHEM4 aqa boundaries?!
    Could be worse - 90/100 for full UMS is lowest ever by two marks. CHEM5 is scarier with 94/100 for full UMS ngl.

    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
    Oh okay
    Was worried there
    Thought all the places could be finished especially since I don't get my results till 11
