    Has anyone seen Liverpool clearing list? They've practically got every course in clearing...

    ...I think they're a joke uni. AAA for History normally, goes to ABB. When I applied last year it went down to BBB as did many other courses.

    Think they need to take a long look at themselves and realise they're not that prestigious.

    <3 negs. It's true though. Their quality of teaching and reputation don't deserve such high entry requirements. They could easily have filled these places with ABB applicants before clearing if they didn't overrate themselves so much.

    So will we get an email from the Unis tomorrow?
    Or one from UCAS saying something has been changed, or do we get anything more specific?
    You get a specific email from track at 8:10am if yours has changed saying that you're into your firm/insurance or else you're in clearing good luck!

    I've received Good Luck and 'we still have places in clearing' cards in the post from my Insurance Choice and some others that I originally applied for but I haven't heard anything from my firm. Is this a bad sign? Or am I just panicking and reading way too much into it :confused:. Thanks!

    It was 10 or 11 last year for me and I remember being so annoyed. But then again, now I understand it's so they can sort out the A2 lot in the morning which can take hours if people have missed choices etc. Hang in there!

    Yeah they're prioritising the A2s who need to go through clearing and stuff, so that when we go in we can talk to teachers and discuss next year. It sucks, but I'm sure I'll appreciate it next year if I need their help!

    I checked the website, it's 6, not 6:30
    Even if I was waiting for my A2 results, I don't think I would be able to get up at 5:45 to get ready to go out to collect my results, what with my current sleeping pattern and everything

    I suppose. I think they should just scrap ISAs altogether, they are really unfair, the amount of help students get from teachers varies far too much.
    I agree completely, there must be only a hand full of students that could genuinely get 48 or 49 on those ISA's, I was supposed to be pretty good at chemistry and I could only manage 44
