    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

    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

    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

    Lmao,, I suggest u avoid tsr at all costs if u don't wanna look at grade boundaries
    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

    I think Edexcel took down the grade boundaries because the link is not working, did anyone manage to download it?
    Is this the one you want?

    Grade boundaries are ok, apart from economics. way too high for both papers.
    Are you talking about edexcel's papers and if so may I know what the grade boundaries for them are as the link on the website isn't working

    The grade boundaries shattered my confidence. Ridiculously high for Edexcel Chemistry. Looks like I'm probably headed into clearing.

    Does your firm and insurance always consider you for other similar courses if you don't get on your first choice course?

    It's normal practice (but not every university does it - and what you consider similar isn't always considered to be similar by universities) - but if there's a course you definitely want to be considered for then contact your universities today to let them know.
