    Durham is undecided for me, so assuming I need to call with my grades. However, my school doesn't open until 10:00, will they have given the place away by then?
    Call them up ASAP :yep:

    Didn't get into anything. Can't remember the last time I wasn't disappointed with an outcome in my life. Oh well, **** this world
    Could you look at Clearing? Do you have your results?

    Call admissions and be very clear you want an answer as to when you'll hear back. Out of interest which uni is it?

    The waiting is always the hardest part!

    Just a few more moments, be patient!


    Good luck!! :flutter:
    Thank you so much.. I feel like I have been waiting for centuries... first waiting for offers and then waiting for exam results and now waiting for their decisions
    Not surprised if I have to wait for 100 years more..

    AAA and I got into med! I GOT INTO MED!!!!!!!!! Was setting myself up for disappointment having seen the boundaries, so I really can't believe it!

    If I was looking for reasons to be annoyed, I got a C in the Bio ISA which meant I was 1 mark off A*! Do I care? Not in the slightest!

    I GOT INTO MEDICAL SCHOOL!

    Hope everyone gets what they deserve today. Best of luck!

    I did, I Should get an A in bio but I got a B with 3 marks off an A
    3 marks is very easy to catch up :yep: . You only need to be 3 marks over the A-grade boundary to get that A next year!

    Do you think you can do it?

    No... I am not able to call them since I am not living in the UK FML
    You really need to call them, they usually have an international call line, try and borrow a phone if you need to?

    My UCAS hasn't updated for some reason not confirmed or anything. What does this mean ?
    See the first post of this thread.

    Get your results and get on the phone

    They won't give your place away - no clearing places get through officially until after 3pm

    would you guy prefer a resiit of year 13 or a transter in yr 2 ?
    Transfers are risky - don't rely on switching universities.

    How hard is it to change courses once your at your uni? My friend wants to go to SOAS but they are full for law apparently. She is thinking of doing social anthropology and seeing if she could change...but that's risky incase you can't change.
