    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.

    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.
    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.

    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 so much! I don't think that I want to give up on med just yet, so I really appreciate everything you said 😊

    Do many people do foundation year? I am thinking of doing it & im planning on resitting 4 exams as i got ACE and was 1 ums mark off each grade so whilst doing foundation year can i resit the 3 exams? So i can get A*BC? Or should i take a gap year and resit externally?
    A foundation year is generally for people who have alternative qualifications (i.e. non-degree subject related A-Levels) or work experience that can be considered in lieu of the normal A-Level/BTEC/SQAs etc. If you're eligible, they are a fantastic way to get up to speed and you may end up having the advantage over students that go directly into Year 1 of their degree!

    It might be a big ask to resit 3 or 4 exams and undertake a foundation year at the same time, although if you resat during the summer (if possible) and then went on to start your foundation year in September, I don't see why it wouldn't be possible.

    It might be worth talking to a careers adviser at your college and also thinking about the financial side of things. How much does a foundation year cost compared to a gap-year + resits?

    At the end of the day, if you want it, you can do it.

    If it says Unconditional on Track, then you're in . Don't bother them on Results Day if you've been accepted

    I got BBB which I'm so pleased with

    But Aberystwyth accepted me even though I asked them a week ago to release me. I've phoned them and they said they'll do it ASAP. Bournemouth can't do anything until they do. I'm so upset right now literally crying. UCAS isn't going to update until 12 and all the places might be gone So even though I have decent grades I'm stuck

    Don't do anything. Leave it and everything is fine.
