    A*A*A

    A in bio with 486 ums, but I'd figured that'd be a low A so not surprised

    Maths and history are A*s which is....? Like maths was kinda expected (only just got it though with 90 in c3 and 92 in c4) but my history exam, for which my teacher had never given me a grade above a B on an essay and which I was literally 100% sure I'd messed up, I got 115/120 (plus 77/80 on coursework) which is a pretty solid A* and ?????????????????????

    ???????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????????????????

    Thank u mr examiner

    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.
    Transfers are hard if the course is full, I wouldnt bank on it, doing a course you dont enjoy is not advised just for the chance of a course transfer.

    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?
    I don't think I have the determination to repeat it next year, I was expecting an A*, ending up with a B devastated me

    How do you know if youve exceeded your offer before you get your results? Wll done though, I also got into my firm
    The option for Adjustment shows, and I assume that means I've exceeded it? I've seen a few screenshots where people haven't had the Adjustment button show up next to their confirmation.

    Congrats!

    That's pretty rude of them, what have they said on the phone?
    I'm crying at the moment, so haven't phoned them yet

    I'm really debating whether I should go there or not though. I've always been in my insurance (York St John) as it was unconditional. I'm thinking of ringing them up first and saying my situation?

    Really narked to be honest

    No... I am not able to call them since I am not living in the UK FML
    That's not a reason. If you're using that as an excuse eg £10 on a phone call then you don't deserve to go to that university! You're about to spend thousands on a degree yet you don't want to pick up the phone and do something about making sure you get in? #facepalm

    Something like that would put me off a uni, i d call them calmly and ask them to explain themselves.

    Does anyone know why i have a smallcircle next to my A grade on my aqa results sheet
    http://www.aqa.org.uk/student-suppor...ts/results-day
    There's nothing there for a circle - have you spoken to your school/teachers? It could be something they added.

    Call them up on their admissions/clearing hotline and find out when you will get a decision.

    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.
    I guess Ill try.. Thank you so much tho!!!:heart:

    EVERYONE who gets in to their firm has the option for adjustment on Track.

    It doesn't mean you've exceeded your offer (if you adjusted it is up to your universities to check you're eligible)

    Got into my first choice at York despite being two grades off, ABB. I did end up with an A in every module apart from two which could have helped maybe? I have half a mind to blame my teachers as there were parts of the history course that we were simply never taught that ended up being on the exam and my English teacher spent half a year looking at obscure poetry which was incredibly unlikely to come up on the exam.

    I did end up with an A in an exam I didn't finish which I was surprised and amused at.
