    Help!

    A little confused by my results-

    I got 349 UMS in my Latin A level (OCR), and I'm unsure if this is an A or an A*.

    My results sheet says two things:

    - Over 340 in a four unit exam is an A*

    - To get an A*, you need at least 320 AND 90% in both A2 units (which I didn't get)

    Does anyone know what the grade boundary is for an A* for Latin OCR?

    Thanks and well done to everyone!! xx

    I got BBB which I'm so pleased with

    But Aberystwyth accepted me even though I asked them a week ago to release me and so 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
    There's little you can do but keep pestering them to release you until they get sick of you. Just bombard them until they do

    Call and pester now. Push it and make sure you get the name of whoever you talk to. You have plenty of time. Breathe.

    I'm a bit concerned that they have calculated my grade for History wrong. I did the Edexcel History course and got 345 marks overall, which they have put as an A. However for my Politics, also Edexcel, I got 341 marks which they have put as an A*. This is probably me just overthinking it but do you think it is worth querying this at my Sixth Form?
    First, fantastic results. Very well done!

    Could it be a difference in grade boundaries between the two subjects? Have a look here.

    If you're still concerned, there is no harm in checking with your sixth form. You can put your mind at rest and start the celebrations!

    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).
    Thanks PQ,

    But it looks like Equivalency Testing only offers Maths and English? I've already got Maths and English GCSEs and got B & C, maybe because I did BTEC equivalent to GCSEs for the rest (though got Distinctions).

    It isn't the end of the world and you've still got a place at a university You should be able to get more information on Westminister in their subforum here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=533
    Thanks to you and the others for the cheery words.
    I'm actually in a bit of a confusing situation right now.

    I just got that place at Westminster (through adjustment), but also phoned up Goldsmiths... and somehow got a place there too! Except the guy I was with messed up, and right at the end I learned he'd done this entire thing through Clearing. He was eager to finish up (I was in a special situation, and was his first ever call), so he ended before I could explain that I wanted it through adjustment.

    So, I have two questions: I'm already registered for adjustment, can i then cancel that and my current offer to go through Clearing to accept Goldsmiths? Second question: If yes, should I?Thanks a lot!

    If they've rejected then nope. They'll have considered everything and done what they can already.

    Wow well done!

    Don't worry - places wont be gone.

    NOONE can officially apply through clearing until 3pm...and even so BU are usually advertising places for a couple of weeks after results day.

    Do you still have the email address of the person your mum spoke to? Email them to let them know you're arranging to get released into clearing and will be applying ASAP and ask if there's anything they can do to reassure you or save a place. Tell them about visiting the other week and having accommodation sorted.

    With most A2 subjects to achieve an A* you have to average 90% in your A2 units. So it sounds like you had a high AS total but didn't quite achieve 90% average in your A2 units, so you've got a higher UMS but won't have averaged 90%.

    If they've rejected you, then it's unlikely to make a difference :sadnod:

    If you didn't make the requirements for the 90% in both A2 units, you will get an A and not an A*
