    2 UMS off an A* in chem, is it worth the remark...?
    Have you met your offer? If so, then no. If you've missed your offer, then go for it :yep:

    Reading this is giving me anxiety I'm overthinking and wondering should I have had an email yet if I've gotten in?! I'm an external candidate so I just have to wait until track and then my results are being emailed to me by the college I sat my exams with at around 9.30am
    No, definitely not :nah: . Most people won't get emails, so you're not missing out by not getting emailed

    Today feels like some sort of judgement day. A day when I'm being judged based on my exam results rather than ability (I feel like my exams fail to test this often with maths). I'm not a fan of exams typically and my FM exams were pretty awful (to get a B/C/D) but that doesn't mean I'd be horrible on the course if I get A* in normal maths... Do unis usually understand this or would I need to contact the firm in the case of rejection? :/

    Do you need an A*? If not, I'd just leave it tbh. Marks are unlikely to change in science subjecte and an A is still brilliant.

    So my results for AS are:
    Computer Science - D
    Geology - E
    Physics - C
    Chemistry - D

    This is good as I plan to drop Geology and the rest of my grades don't count to an A2. I can still turn it into something good!

    Thank you!! It's Lancaster

    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
    Hey! I got an email saying I've been accepted at Lancaster too!

    Universities will know how the maths exams work but i m afraid unless you're going for a priority remark there's no point calling them if tracks shows a rejection normally, sorry.

    I would say yes, what harm could it do? Do you need the A* for an offer?
