    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?

    Assuming you've got ABB or higher and are looking for something biology related - the best places wont go in clearing.

    In your situation it's worth waiting for an answer from KCL. Make sure to get names and job titles when you speak to them on the phone (you'll get better answers and less fobbing off) and phone them regularly.

    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.
    What subject were you hoping for at UAL? most UAL courses will recommend a foundation diploma before you apply for the degree anyway so your A levels are a lot less important than your portfolio/show reel.

    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.



    Smashed it mate. Well done
    Thank you!

    That's quite rubbish of them.*
    usycool, I'm quite worried about my critical thinking AS grade. I've not collected my results in it

    I wouldn't be suprised if I got a D in it and I want to study dentistry, as we didn't get proper lessons or anything... the school forced us to do it.

    Do universities literally disregard it all together or will it hinder my application at all (assuming other subjects are fine?)

    It's going to be cashed in sadly so will have to go on my ucas form

    my three math units show up for as. they have not displayed a grade but my ums adds up to around 270ish so is this an A or the max grade at as?

    Also i did poorly on one pf the papers but i think ive gotten the max grade of A right so there wouldnt be a point of resitting that paper?

    Plans will always get put on hold in life, don't worry about it too much sweetheart.

    There is no shame in going into clearing and you can always return to medicine later on in life hon.

    Thanks! I'm still looking into GEM but I'm not sure medicine is for me anymore. I thought I gave my all in these exams but clearly I must have done something wrong. 😌

    I wanted to do Fashion Business, but I wasn't really sure about the course and future career path, as they told me wait for the AS results...

    See the first post - Track wont change now til midday.

    If you've got your results ring your universities and find out when they'll give you an answer (and if you're not willing to wait tell them - it's unacceptable to keep you hanging - they've had your grades since Saturday)

    A-Levels are very different to what Medicine is like and have very little bearing on whether or not it's for you.
