    Thank-you, just relieved really as I was sure I had blown it with Chemistry! Reading your posts on the Cardiff page really helped me this year, just a shame I won't get to go there as I would have firmed it, loved the place.
    Dont worry about it!

    And no matter what your going to be going to med school so it doesnt matter!

    Do you have the option to go and speak to your teachers?
    I self studied Biology, however, I am thinking of remarking one of the papers because I believe I got higher

    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.
    Yeah, they sent my application to the course director who will review my application and my track will update later. Fingers crossed..

    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
    Computer Science yes?Have you got your grades yet? There's a lot of really good places in clearing for CompSci or for similar Computer & management/project management type courses...or plenty of other routes into CS work without a degree.

    You'll need to contact the uni because when you firmed them you entered an agreement that you'll be going to that university if you met their requirements. They may release you if they're happy with your reasons but they're under no obligation to do so.

    I'm pretty sure you can just withdraw, but you would need to re-apply. Do you want to defer your place?

    Give your firm a call and find out what's going on with your firm.

    I had this last year for Durham as I wanted to take a gap year & reapply for a different course/uni. What I did was withdraw my UCAS application and student finance applications, then I phoned Durham to let them know that's what I had done.

    HOWEVER. if you still want to do that course at that uni, but just to defer a year, it's definitely worth phoning them first to see if they could defer your place for next year's entry!

    Good luck!

    It means they either haven't decided or haven't told UCAS yet, They might want to make you an offer for a different course - ring your firm once you have your grades.

    Guys anyone on here know how long I should have to wait to get my CAS letter? Will the uni send it in automatically or do I have to call them up or something?
    You have to contact them - at least that's what I did. It's safe to assume that it will take a couple of weeks as they will be producing a large volume of CAS statements.
