    Well done everyone who get's what they want today, and don't worry to those who don't. 23 years ago I was a disappointed man, but I ended up changing career directions completely (Doctor -> Finance & Marketing) and it has all worked out just fine

    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?

    They have said that I can still go, but they said some sort of jargon of being "worried I won't be able to get my degree".I know that I can do well at uni, I'm not stupid by any means, however due to circumstances (having chronic OCD, studying Psychology in one year etc, though I do accept that I am to blame for my below-what-I-wished for grades) I did more poorly than I had hoped.
    It's Bournemouth University, if that matters.
    That's pretty rude of them, what have they said on the phone?

    Yes you should call them, call them at your school once you have your results. They shouldnt have given it away by then but one year durham kept people waiting for decisions for a while so dont let them mess you about with waiting for a decision.

    Both of my offers unsuccessful. FML I didn't think it was that bad (AAB,ABB) and my school opens at 10am as well.

    No idea what to do now.
    :confused:
    Get ready to go into school. Buy a copy of the telegraph to read while you wait and get there a bit before 10am so you're first in.

    You need to call them, an email wont get you an answer that quickly. Can you borrow a phone? They might have a number for international students to call.

    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!

    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?
