    Should I be worried if I dont hear from my firm uni before track opens??
    No. Not all universities will email/text early. And even if they do they could be sending thousands of emails - so not all will send instantly- or they could have been eaten by your spam filter.

    The grades work differently for GCSE and A-levels :yep: . You're about 3 years too far into the future with this thread




    Congratulations! :awesome: . What do you want to study?
    Thanks dude! I will be studying maths!

    I personally thank you and all the other moderators for being up this early and late every night helping answer our questions and calming us down. It really does help the situation, and definitely puts a smile on my face!

    If my friends insurance texted him saying he's in, does that mean he's missed his firm offer?
    Wait to see what tracks says but i m afraid that could be the case.

    No not at all, the are breaking the embargo set upon them by UCAS if they contact you earlier so most will not contact you directly till after 8am when UCAS has updated.
    I thought the embargo ended at 6 not 8...

    (Original post by soLit)
    I am most scared about disappointing teachers who believed in me :/ is that weird?
    :nah: . When does school open for you?

    (Original post by Karambir Singh)
    Just got my results for the third time and I've got 2 D's.. I honestly don't know where I keep going wrong, I felt my exams went really well and I answered all the questions I did correctly (A* in bio 4). I'm numb to the whole thing now and I don't have a clue what to do
    Are you able to go and speak to someone at school about your results?

    Congratulations! Which uni are you off to?



    Excellent choice of uni. Congratulations! :woo:
    I have to make a quick choice between Biochemistry at King's College or Medicine in Rome, Italy. I'm pretty sure I will go and do Medicine as that's what I've always wanted

    If you've missed your grades that significantly, you will need to go in to school and speak to someone. It might be worth getting exam scripts back to have a look at where you might have fallen down slightly, or request a remark. At least call them up for me?
    Thanks but I know I failed on the AQA maths papers so I guess it was to be expected, I'll just wait until Clearing starts. On the Clearing vacancies if the entry requirement is lower, i.e ABB or something do I bother calling up? Thanks for your support btw

    try not to worry to much about them, its more about how you feel. Sometimes teachers put a little bit to much pressure on and it may just make you feel worse regardless of the results.
    Best of luck

    Thank you!! It's Lancaster

    (Original post by Nirgilis)
    Well done! :jumphug:Do you have any plans for the rest of the day now?
    Thanks! I'm actually not sure yet though. Gonna hang with my girls for a bit, but nothing specific because we're saving to go out for my friend's birthday at the weekend! Plus to be honest, I wasn't really sure today was going to be a celebratory kind of day

    It is always worth calling up a University if their interesting to you :yep: . Since there are no limits on places, if a University feels they can place more students with lower grades, then they will! However, you might need to wait a little whilst students who have met ABB are placed, so don't be disappointed if you are asked to call back tomorrow morning.

    Have you had any contact from your firm or insurance uni yet?
