    Awful results (chemistry was a shock) so I'm going into clearing and have to scrap my medicine/ gap year plans 😭
    Oh no. I'm so sorry to hear that, especially since you've worked so hard - so what degrees will you be looking at?

    :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?
    I liked neuroscience, but my grades aren't really good enough even for that (ABC and A*epq). My B and C were 2ums each off from the next grade up so I'm getting them remarked😥

    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.
    If you've got a place (doing a great subject BTW) there is no need to dwell on the grades. They were good enough after all!

    You've got the next 3+ years to enjoy and make the most of and you'll be in demand when you graduate! Wish I had done ComSci. Westminster generally has good student satisfaction. In the 70s for ComSci. Remember, Uni is what you make of it. Grab every opportunity.

    ...and Happy Birthday

    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:
    Oh no

    It's worth asking if they'll accept any substitutes for GCSE (like these tests https://www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/study/a...y-Testing.aspx - available in August with almost instant marking).

    Thank you for saying that! Probably just a science degree then maybe apply for GEM. I can't wait for this day to be over!

    Something like that would put me off a uni, i d call them calmly and ask them to explain themselves.
    Just thought I'd update you:
    I've rang Bournemouth, (well, the woman who wanted to ring me about it) and the lady was extremely rude to me. Couldn't remember who she was speaking to despite me saying my name 4 times, and actively said that they didn't want me to go, despite my grades being fine.
    So I rang York St John, and they're very pleased to have me. The woman was lovely, and gave me lots of advice, so I'm going there!
    Every cloud eh?

    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!
    Well, you deserve everything that comes your way today

    http://www.southampton.ac.uk/biosci/...oscience.page? is asking for BBB :ninjagirl: (and Soton often drop a grade for an A or above in EPQ anyway).

    That's Bournemouth's loss and your gain. It's good to hear you've found a uni that values you though!

    I got A*A*B. WHAT EVEN

    The B from English Literature was a bit weird/unexpected :/ I got a low C, almost a D in the exam which I thought went really well. But the school is paying for mine and 3 others to be sent off for remarks because it's abnormal considering I got a high A in the coursework.

    A* IN HISTORY THO HOW TF DID THAT HAPPEN I THOUGHT THE EXAM WAS A TRAINWRECK LOL

    Well done to everyone, hope you're all happy with what you've got :heart:
