    if your firm rejects you, is it possible to contact them and change their minds to accept you? I really don't think my grades are going to reflect my potential and i've never wanted something as bad as i want to do this course!
    If Track says unsuccessful then there's no point in ringing - it's difficult to undo a rejection and universities will only send them to UCAS if they're sure

    You can ring if you want but be prepared for a short sharp :no:

    If you don't make your grades and want to phone up your first choice university, do you contact general undergraduate admissions, or do you phone up your subject department directly? Thanks
    Check their website for a clearing/confirmation hotline number - that's the number where all the staff will be (other phone lines are likely to be sent straight to voicemail or not answer or redirect to the hotline).
    The only exception to this is if your university have an "offer holders" or "confirmation" webpage or sent you an email or portal (if they have an applicant portal) message with a different number

    I could send you the link, but whoever put the papers up has taken them down . The only AQA 2016 papers I have on hand are C1, C3, M1, D1, D2, FP1 and FP3.

    I'm really into anything with a decent reputation but as long as I get that feel when I visit then I know it's right lolI'm interested in pretty much all of those you sent me, and from my research before my initial application but considering my grades (lets say BCC at a worst case scenario) I doubt many will be achievable?Looking at the website for southampton, it states the grade but would you recommend calling if you are slightly off or wait until they lower it if they wish for universities in general?

    I was also interested in A&F as well as Economics prior so would those be easier tto access? (Sorry i'm spamming i'm at work at the moment)
    It's worth a phone call - I'd recommend getting a dead cert or two offers before ringing the riskier ones but universities like Sussex, Essex, Reading are excellent universities that for some reason just don't have the clout/attraction of the bigger russell groups.
    There was also Aston, Glasgow and Goldsmiths if you're up for a slightly bigger city.

    I don't know as much about A&F but unlike compsci they're less restricted by lab space for teaching capacity so there's even more chance of a place if a university is looking to fill up

    Say if you did better than you expected, do you have to sign up to adjustment or can you just start to call the unis up?
    There's a button appears on Track if you get accepted onto your firm. If you hit it then you're in adjustment and can contact other universities....if you either don't call or don't take up a place elsewhere then it times out after 5 days

    What does UCAS say if you get into your insurance but NOT your firm?

    Does it say "Congratulations! Your place at (insurance) has been confirmed"?

    ^ that would annoy me lol
    It does congratulate you - UCAS consider any place a good place

    Ahahaha that is true! IT'S EVERYWHERE! :rofl: but what I have found is the majority of people who are talking about the grade boundaries did subjects such as Maths, Law and Sciences etc. I didn't do any of those, so I think I'm good
