    I made a new thread posting the link, but it's funny how The Community Team withdraw the link from the original post of this thread.
    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

    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.



    That's amazing!
    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.

    Try and get some rest so you re prepared if the worst does happen, which I m sure it won't
    If I do feel sleepy I'll sleep, it feels kinda impossible rn but I'm sure I'll get there later

    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!

    I don't know if I should go to sleep or not... I know if I fall asleep then when I wake up, I'll feel fine until I suddenly remember that it is actually results day and my heart will start racing. If I stay awake, I have more hours to mentally prepare myself...

    Exam boards have requested TSR to not host unreleased papers.

    PS: why the change of username?

    so if a course is in clearing it means you are likely to have been rejected?
