    There are obvious exceptions to this, for example, I obviously have an A*A* in Maths and Further Maths, since I essentially need 0 UMS in my Maths exams and something like <100 UMS over 3 FM exams, I'd say that's a good reason to make assumptions...
    my reasoning is that I only need 51/72 in one unit and then 61/83 in the other one and my estimate is around 54 for the first unit and then 60 for the other one so seems more likely than not... I've been through the mark schemes and marked harsh as well

    Good luck everyone don't be too anxious! I missed my grades and was devastated because I thought I'd lose my offer, but still got it, so it does happen!

    Yeah of course, though it's always different for Maths subjects than it is for others (even Sciences). I only have to get at the very most 140 UMS in my two business exams to get the A I need but even then there's still a chance I could mess it up, with writing subjects like that there always is.

    Good point, I wouldn't dream of assuming my mark in a subjective essay subject, but am more than comfortable saying I've gotten 75/75 in my FP3 paper, or whatever. Thanks.

    Does nobody realise that grade boundaries are based on the performance of the students? If boundaries are high it's more likely you've done well.

    Not really, it means that more people scored highly not that more people did well.
    Also being MEI maths I'm celebrating due to lowest grade boundries in recent history for some modules

    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/ ).
    Not doing computer science but I'm from Swansea and if I hadn't lived here all my life I'd definitely come to uni here, beaches and stuff are so good , decent shops and the nightlife is really good too. My friend did computer science here too
