    Awful results (chemistry was a shock) so I'm going into clearing and have to scrap my medicine/ gap year plans 😭
    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.

    I'm sorry GEM is still an option!
    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. 😌

    my three math units show up for as. they have not displayed a grade but my ums adds up to around 280ish so is this an A or the max grade at as?
    It's an A - well done

    The max mark is 300.*

    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.



    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.
    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...

    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
    Most will disregard it so don't worry

    Does anyone know what will happen and when track will update again still waiting for my first choice dont know whether to ring or wait a little while
    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.

    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.

    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?
