    Got a C in my English exam which I don't understand
    And my coursework must have gotten pulled down to a B which means I got a B overall for English
    Those OCR grade boundaries were the devil
    I'm so annoyed
    Did anyone else face the same thing with OCR?

    Congratulations..? . What's your newfound ambition now that that one's off the table?

    Thank you

    I'm going to be predicted fairly average but I'm going to email some unis and ask them on whether I could apply for a course that wants ABB with my BBB predictions.

    I have to contact queen mary before 3 ??
    Are QMUL your firm?

    If you don't want to accept the foundation year from your firm call UCAS (not your firm).

    Your application will then pass on to your insurance (if that offer is unconditional or conditional still) or to clearing (if your insurance choice shows as unsuccessful).

    You can do this yourself on Track at 3pm...or you can do it before then by phoning UCAS.

    Okay, freaking out now. My backup was unconditional no matter what, and I got Bournemouth to release me so I could be accepted there, but now it says declined and I can't get hold of the university! Ahhh!

    Well done . Are you happy?
    Yeah I'm really happy about the A*s but not so much for English because my coursework grade is saying B but it was really high
    Last year my school messed up our coursework and my marks went down like 10 marks
    I'm pissed off because I think it's happened again

    Hi, all! I got into my first choice with Edge Hill. (Yes, I know it isn't the best University considering all of you lot are smashing it with A*s!!) However, for my ability it was the best place for me. The campus is amazing! Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had the mark scheme for HIS3B (AQA). My exam mark was extremely lower than expected and my teachers were shocked too. They expect that one of the examiners missed a page out. So they said that I should go for a priority mark. Anyway, before I spend £50 odd, It would be good to see the mark scheme to know if I ****ed up or not ! Cheers

    I hope everyone got what they wanted and deserve!

    My firm choice IS actually in clearing..?
    Just to clarify, you applied to your chosen course entering in Year 1 and this morning, based on your results, your firmed university has accepted you on the foundation year without discussing it with you?

    Best bet is to ring up and find out why they have done that. If you do choose to change course/university, the option to add a Clearing choice will not show on UCAS until 3pm today, so don't stress. Take the time to think about your decision and call around.

    If your firm university have offered you a place on their foundation course, it is likely your results will allow you to go through Clearing and find a different university that will take you on as a Year 1 student.
