    Durham: "You'll find out by Wednesday at the latest."

    Oh gee, thanks. Seems a tad unfair to keep us in suspense for so long.

    Sounds to me like you're going to a much happier, friendlier and better place then! Congratulations
    Thanks so much! Big thanks to The Financier, PQ and claireestelle too (I don't know how to quote multiple people on here still )

    Generally, this has gone from a sub-par day to a good one. I'm very happy!

    I considered it but I don't think I can face my teachers/ sixth form again! 😞
    Try not to worry to much, I believe everything happens for a reason and you will still go onto greatness in life if you strive for it, it must just take you a little longer to get to the path you desire.

    Your grades are very close to the next grade up, giving you the possibility of AAB+A* in EPQ if im correct, I personally would consider looking in clearing for something you like but dont make a rash decision, you seem very confused at the moment and you have plenty of time to make a rational and well thought through decision.

    if you dont find anything you like at a university you like in clearing wait back for those remarks and then take a gap year and apply! if your interested still in healthcare why not look at courses related to medicine with slightly lower entry requirements such as pharmacology, neuroscience, psychology, midwifery, nursing, paramedical sciences.

    I promise you all is not lost here! best of luck.

    Thank you for sharing this! I thought they said they want AAB though 😞
    The clearing page says BBB http://www.southampton.ac.uk/courses...vacancies.page admittedly they say a B in chem but if you tell them about your remarks they're likely to be interested especially with your EPQ as well.

    Congratulations to everyone for their hard work and success! I remember when this was me two years ago and since then I've had two wonderful years at University and am moving to Canada in a couple weeks to study abroad at the University of British Columbia for a year. Time really does fly. To those who are going to Univeristy; make the most of any opportunities and experiences that you come across! To those who didn't quite get the grades - know that there is always another plan and experience to be held, no matter what you choose to do.

    You can always ask Durham to reject you so you can go into Clearing if that's more preferable to you? :dontknow:

    You don't have to wait.

    If you tell them you have options in clearing you want to take up and want a decision today then you can force their hand.

    They've had your grades since Friday night - there's no excuse to keep you waiting other than that they're trying to get someone "better" through clearing and damaging your chances elsewhere to save them time.

    They do this every year and it is unacceptable.
