    On UCAS Track, my firm choice said my application was unsuccessful and my insurance choice hasn't responded at all yet. So I'm in a bit of a limbo. I'd already prepared myself that I may need to go into clearing so I'd chosen uni’s and courses that I would apply for if that time came, so now I feel like the longer my insurance take to reply, the less chance I have of getting a place on a course. I heard that Track won’t update until 12 noon, so I’m going to ring the uni I think – otherwise I’ll be waiting far too long for a clearing number to come through if they reject me! Can anyone give me any advice, or I there anything else I should do? Thanks
    If you have your results, call them up right now :yep:

    I think it's a good idea to phone your insurance.*

    Sorry about your firm.*

    Try not to panic and sit down and ring them, until you've heard directly from them, you don't know what's happening

    Can someone explain the boundaries you need for an A*, A, B etc in terms of UMS?
    I know its 480 for an A in a 6 unit a level, what about 4 unit and what do you need for an A*
    It'll be 80% for an A, 70% for a B etc. So for four modules, 160/200 for an A, 140/200 for a B etc.

    keele
    they both went to oxbridge
    Then I'm sure they're bright enough to appreciate Keele is a solid university. What are you going to study?

    ...and I know this may sound cheesy, but University really is what you make of it. You're in a fantastic position to take every opportunity that comes your way from now on. You've just got into your first choice! Be proud of yourself and enjoy today and the next 3+ years. They will be some of the best of your life!

    Can I call a uni and ask about a course that's not on clearing to see if they'd let me on that instead or is it a waste of time?
    Huge waste of time

    If you've got your results then ring your insurance

    Take names and job titles of who you speak to.

    Explain that you have some options in clearing that you'd like to apply for and would like a decision from them ASAP. They KNOW if they're going to take you or not (they're just playing the field and using your application as a backup which is out of order) so forcing their hand won't harm your chances of a place.

    Earlier this year my firm said I have to achieve certain grades on my current education, I just phoned them up this morning when I found out that they have rejected me and they said they rejected me because I didn't do full GCSEs 4 years ago.

    Oh well.... 😒

    You can try, but if they're not in clearing it's extremely unlikely that they'll have a place available.

    I'm going to Keele! What are you studying? I'm studying Midwifery and Keele is 3rd in the UK for that which is why I'm going, a lot of prestige in the medical world. It's a fab uni and you need to go where you feel comfortable and where is good for your particular subject. I hasn't won 1st for student satisfaction 3 years running for nothing!

    Contact the international office at your university - they wont be so swamped as the clearing lines and they'll know how it works for that uni and how long you can expect to wait :yes:

    Definitely. Have a look at the UCAS website for courses around the BCC grade boundaries :yep: . Unless you're willing to resit or retake the year?
