    I got ABC and my offer was ABB for biochem at warwick, I got the C in bio is it worth calling up
    If they've rejected then nope. They'll have considered everything and done what they can already.

    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
    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.

    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?
    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:

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

    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).
    I'd definitely suggest ringing them up this afternoon and asking to speak to someone senior - it's very unusual to reject a transfer because of GCSE grades (especially if you've got Eng/Maths at C+ and BTEC equivalents)...it could be that someone somewhere has messed up because they don't understand BTECs.

    Yep. If you want to go into Clearing, you can do that instead :yep:

    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!
    I think because you've registered your choice on adjustment as Westminister that you won't be able to cancel it for Goldsmith's offer in clearing.

    After 3pm you'll have the option on track to reject that option and you'll be passed on to your insurance.

    If you want to do this before 3pm then you can do it over the phone with UCAS

    It wont appear until 3pm.

    Call universities and get informal offers then add your favourite on track at 3 or later.

    It's worth a phone call - I'd recommend getting a dead cert or two offers before ringing the riskier ones but universities like Sussex, Essex, Reading are excellent universities that for some reason just don't have the clout/attraction of the bigger russell groups.
    There was also Aston, Glasgow and Goldsmiths if you're up for a slightly bigger city.

    I don't know as much about A&F but unlike compsci they're less restricted by lab space for teaching capacity so there's even more chance of a place if a university is looking to fill up

    There's a button appears on Track if you get accepted onto your firm. If you hit it then you're in adjustment and can contact other universities....if you either don't call or don't take up a place elsewhere then it times out after 5 days

    It does congratulate you - UCAS consider any place a good place
    Well luckily I got into Exeter with BBB instead of ABB, probably because the B which was meant to be an A was in Economics wasn't relative, spent 3 hours researching other universities for nothing I guess!

    Hey guys I've been accepted on UCAS Track but haven't heard anything from the University themselves, anyone know how long before they email or should I try to phone them?
    Congratulations! If you have been accepted on Track then don't worry, you're in.
    If you haven't heard anything by tomorrow, drop them a call just to confirm. Which uni are you off to?
