    I got into my firm, Birmingham! I'm so happy I've got the full body shakes. I can finally eat as well without feeling like I'm going to throw up. I might celebrate with some rice crispies and put on a Brummie accent.
    Congratulations

    Insurance confirmed me on track, but firm still says my offer is unconditional, have I missed my firm or are they slower than my insurance in responding?

    So your firm has got an Unconditional Firm?

    That means your in. What your insurance says doesn't matter
    no I actually applied to Oxford for a foundation year programme which was launched this year
    I got the offer from oxford but it wasnt through UCAS
    Oxford told me to ring them with my grades and the grades they asked me for are pretty similar to what my firm wanted.. all my offers were conditional both on and Off UCAS
    I dont even want to go to my firm, I was meant to take a gap year but the foundation year opportunity came

    this is why i really need good grades so I can take up my Oxford offer

    So that being said, does your insurance AUTOMATICALLY reject you if you got into your firm choice university?? or does this mean i got bad grades?

    It's really not a good idea to wait until lunch for applicants who have missed their offers. The wait til lunch thing is for people who have met their offers but not got an update.
    :yy:

    I would +1 you, but I've apparently done that too many times recently :rolleyes: . Thanks for the info

    Wait up, the adjustment option ("find out about and register for adjustment" only appears if you meet and exceed your offer? So... UCL aren't just being nice, I actually got an A in history + I was probably right about my maths A* omg
    Yup, met and exceeded all conditions of your firm!

    You'll need to call up any universities you're thinking of swapping to, and find out whether they have places available via UCAS Adjustment. If you're offered a place, have a think about it and then get back to them to confirm you'd like to take it. They will update your UCAS Track screen, which will show that you're now swapped onto the new course. If you want time to think about an Adjustment offer, it's important to make sure the uni offering you that place understands this, because once the uni has put the offer on your Track, your original firm will be automatically cancelled, and you won't be able to change your mind.

    While you are looking for a place in Adjustment, you keep your existing uni place. If you try Adjustment but don't find anything, you keep the place you already have.

    Right guys, my all nighter is almost over, I'm gonna head off for a bit to shower, change and get to school ready for nine, after which i'll be visiting family which will either console me or be just as shocked as me. For everyone still waiting for AS or A2 results, best of luck and for those waiting for confirmation of uni places good luck too.

    Someone please help me, I am seriously worrying. I met the conditions for my university, even exceeded them (offer AAA, got A*AAAB), yet got into my insurance? Could this be because I didn't send them my IELTS results yet?

    I have the button that says register for adjustment does this mean I exceeded my firm offer or is there for everyone?

    Got into UCL Stats, Econ and Finance.

    Quick question, UCAS is letting me register for adjustment, does that mean I've exceeded my offer? I don't get my results for another hour.
