    I missed my offer by 2 grades (King's medicine) but my offer's still conditional. I called them up and they told me they'll tell me their decision tomorrow at the earliest. That means i can't go through clearing at the moment, but i'm afraid all the good places will be gone by that time. Is there anything i can do?

    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?
    I don't really know what to do... My dream was UAL, but it is gone now probably... As I don't know how uni will react, if they will see these two marks (new spec) and what the teachers can predict... I am so freaked out, as I am international student as well.

    The only thing you can do is wait, and hope they accept you, or ask them to reject you today so that you can go through Clearing :sadnod: . It is the worst situation to be in, and I'm sorry :console:

    Keep calling them, they're likely swamped by calls from students atm
    (Original post by CardiffKate)
    Phone lines get very busy from now until lunch. Keep trying! Don't give up until you've got something.

    Are you ringing for Clearing or to confirm a place?
    Clearing, I got through the first admissions service but now I'm just on hold I think, the phone is continuously ringing

    If you've gone through ucas, you wouldnt get a cas i d have thought, could be wrong though.

    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:

    [congratulations!]
    Thank you!

    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.... 😒

    That sucks

    Have you spotted any other options in clearing?

    A CAS is a visa related thing - all students who need a visa get issued a CAS once their offer becomes unconditional. They can then use this CAS to apply for a Tier 4 visa (and visas take time which is why it's so important they're issues quickly).

    CASs are issued via the UKVI systems.

    That should still meet the requirements of some universities. Take a look around UCAS and you'll get an idea of which universities might offer you a place. You could also consider resitting if you think there's a chance you can improve but talk to your teacher about this as they'll have a better idea of your prospects in that regard.
