    I don't understand why you would check results first though? Because if you think about it, your uni could still accept you even if you didn't meet their conditions, but if you were to check your grades first, you would just think you'd not made it even if you did >.>

    So I am definitely checking track first!
    Let's say you check track first. You get into your firm and then you think you got certain grades (eg. AAA) when really they might have just let you in with lower grades. Then you end up disappointed if this is the case.

    Does anyone know which universities send out emails at 12? or is that just a rumour?
    Rumour, I mean unis aren't really allowed to send emails the day before results day but I think anytime after 6am is fine... This also includes text messages

    Yeahh Good point!

    The thing is, it's all about getting into uni, it's just out of curiosity that I want to check my grades hoping my predictions don't fall in place lol but my results are on 6 am so yeah I don't know if I'll keep the envelope closed till I open track.

    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?
