    Have an effect* :mmm:

    That's because that's not what happens... If you've gotten Us all round, you'll get a U.



    That's good
    No its a stupid system both could get an A at AS then one could get extremely lazy and then both fall ill in march. The system doesn't account for the little things

    I'm aware of that but the offer specifically states that I should get an A in maths, which I doubtI will. So I will end up with A*A*AAB and the offer is AAA (including A in maths).

    Probably but I'm not sure. Honestly you shouldn't have taken that many a-levels it would've rather being more safe and sensible to do 3 a-levels and achieve high grades

    I imagine they would let you in, unless they were heavily over-subscribed already.

    I think she was referring to the part about the subject specific requirement i.e. maths
    Yes, I was referring to the subject specific requirement.

    Probably? I doubt they'll let her go on live radio to embarrass herself due to disappointment!

    The whole illness system is even worse at some unis; she goes to Reading, and got extra marks on one of her exams because her boyfriend broke up with her.

    I don't know if being given an automatic B or C is a good idea, because it doesn't reflect how well the candidate could have done for better or worse, even if it's the easy way around it.
