    What time are the results available? Are they emailed or do you have to go into college for them?
    That all depends on your college. Every college has a different way. I can access mine from the college system at home from 6:30am but others from other colleges have to go in at a specific time to get them

    in terms of, whether most of the people applied got in or not?
    There's no way to know. They might have had far too many applicants and rejected loads or have decided to take everyone rather than go into clearing.

    When I tried to draw eyes the first time, they went really big and were a strange shape. I had to cover them up with paper and then draw the eyes over, but now I have an origami cat so it's all worth it in the end I suppose.
    That's amazing!

    I checked that link, but within the Physics A Folder, the mark schemes available are only for unit 4 and 5 - not the EMPA mark scheme. Would you happen to be able to obtain it? Thank you so much

    Thank you.

    I also just wanted to say that I haven't been posting on this thread but I've been reading through all of it and all of your posts have really helped to calm me down (as much as is possible). I've learnt a lot about admissions and UCAS as well so thank you.

    Any sleep is better than none after all if the worst does happen there will be an abundance of people online to help.

    Do you mean when you can add a choice? That's 3pm. Each university will have different opening times for their clearing hotlines.

    Oh, I separated the EMPA folder, containing EMPA papers and their mark schemes, from the question-papers folder. The folder should be outside of the question-papers folder.

    Wait a couple of hours. The two worst things you could do right now are either:

    - go to bed too early
    - not go to bed at all

    I recommend somewhere between midnight and 1am. Perhaps watch a film or catch up on something from the TV!
