    I really don't want to get my results any more.Obviously I want to know how well I've done, but I hate opening them because once you've seen them, you can't put them back in the envelope and make them change.

    Does this mean we won't be finding out at 7.30 ish like previous years? Since they have blocked access altogether?
    It'll stay like that until whenever Track comes back up. They could bring it up early again but nobody knows.

    Anyone else considering Clearing as an alternative to their insurance choice and asking to get released if they don't get in their firm?
    Yes I'm gonna try and do this but I've been told it can take unis ages to release you by which time the clearing spaces will be gone so not sure what do :/

    Good luck everyone I'm confused now because I want to go to my insurance choice instead of my firm! Is that means I have to go to clearing?

    I guess we could still try calling unis and inform them of our plans. We wouldn't have clearing numbers but could still forward our grades and personal statements to them manually.

    Just remember that you were pretty confident about your exams after they happened and it's just the stress and build up that's talking.

    You can't do that as they have no way of accepting you through the system like that as far as I know, sorry.

    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?
    I tried replying like 5 hours ago but the website said it wasn't sending so I'll try again. Sorry if you've had this reply about 87768 times.

    I totally agree with practically everything you said. I know personally I won't be resitting my C grade if I get into my firm with ABC because I'd likely only get it to a B from resitting (since it was always my weakest subject/least favourite) and why focus on that when I can focus on getting 60% in my first year to get into the postgrad masters course?
    If I find out it will affect me further down the line only then will I start looking. I'm going to discuss this with whichever university I get into at the appropriate time.
    I get what you mean about the awkwardness of having to explain why the grade was so poor in interviews and that's the only thing that would it me off too...having to explain why you did so bad might make it sound like excuses are being made.

    But, if this uni has accepted you, they clearly think you have potential to pass. If they accept you tomorrow with these extenuating circumstances and 'low' grades then they're willing to take that risk with you because they think you're a worthwhile risk. And if you're predicted A*AA you must be smart generally!
    Unis generally don't accept people if they don't think you're going to get a good degree grade because, well....money.
    And also, I agree you can get worse combinations, but As are still seen as good and so are Bs. Remember that a lot of people get accepted under normal circumstances if they miss their grades by one or two (although admittedly if you've applied for an A*AA course maybe this uni would be less inclined into doing that, I don't know.They're pretty high grades, is it a reputable place/course?)

    My firm wants AAA for the Master's but they actually emailed me and said they'd take me on the BEng version of the course if I got ABB - which I totally forgot about. And with ABC on the cards for me I probably have it easier than you, so I shouldn't be complaining

    I think if they accept you tomorrow then you clearly deserve to go. If it's the 'uni of your dreams' etc. then why should your circumstances hinder you? You'll be able to prove yourself to that uni within your first year. And if you care enough to have made a post on here I guarantee you've probably put so much time and effort into it too, so you do deserve your place! I hope you get what you want tomorrow! Good Luck!
