    Most will disregard it so don't worry
    Even with getting an E?

    Do you know which unis would look at it and question it??

    Such a silly system forcing students to do an exam without being taught the content properly!!

    Why is it I fail over and over again, despite the unbelievable amount of work I put in? I improve my previous two failures of DD to CC, but then get DD in A2, overall making it an A2. My other AS of a B has now gone down to a C.

    CDD is pathetic, haha. Luckily, University of Westminster has offered me a place for Computer Science there. Can I ask if people know much about this Uni, and what they think of it?Thanks.
    The hardest part was telling my parents at 6 AM, now I'll have to tell my family who'll call all day that I sucked...

    ...and it's my Birthday on Saturday.

    Sorry to hear that, have you found anything you like in clearing?

    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. 😌
    :hugs:

    What parts of medicine attracted you? There's a bunch of other healthcare options (PA, PT, OT, Pod, ST, Chir, Audio, Paramedic etc etc etc etc) that might have what you enjoy without the OTT focus on grades.

    Or maybe something completely different?

    That sucks

    Have you spotted any other options in clearing?
    Really sucks.. especially if you've invested heavily your time, money and energy in sorting out your application and everything just went down the drain for absolutely nothing. :sad:

    I'm currently enrolled to university, I just tried to transfer to another one but was unsuccessful because of my GCSEs. :ashamed:

    CDD isn't pathetic. I can see why you're disappointed but it's a decent base.

    I'd suggest looking into the details of the Westminster course (and keep looking for other options in clearing) to see how much of your marks will be based on exams. It seems like exams aren't your strong spot so aiming for a degree with more focus on coursework will help you move your grades upwards as you study.

    Not sure yet, some of my friends are planning to go out tonight, but nightclubs aren't really my thing. Nice meal this evening with family would be much nicer, got a few people to ring with the good news!

    Didn't get a lot of sleep last night but there's no chance of me getting any now! Too excited!
