    So happy with A*A*A, especially an A* in maths. In year 12, I got an E in the mock and was placed on intervention - absolutely mad!
    holy crap that's amazing! Especially maths! Congrats, you've clearly worked hard haha!

    It just says all call administrators are busy please call back later and hangs up
    which university?
    (Original post by Reda2)
    Yes firm is qmul, and my insurance is now unconditional, and the offer from qmul. Can you please explain what happens before 3? Is that a deadline for something or what? I need to accept my qmul offer before that only?
    At 3pm track will have full functionality so you can accept or decline a changed course offer through track. Before then you can only do it by calling UCAS.

    Do you WANT to take up the foundation year with QMUL or would you rather go to your insurance?

    What are my chances of a successful remark? 159 UMS in AS politics but need 160, 158 UMS in AS German but need 160 and 4 raw marks off an A in economics over 2 papers?

    5A*'s and an A at A2. S 1 S in STEP I, II & III respectively. Someone on TSR can you beat that legitimately?
    Your username says it all! :facepalm::five:

    Safe to say your results are outstanding... pretty sure people will have a hard time beating that! Congratulations!

    where are you off to in september?

    You're eligible to use adjustment if you want to give it a go I would recommend living on campus as a 2 hour travel sounds a bit much.
    Sorry I meant that I'm travelling to Scotland in two hours which means I'll find today stressful as I won't be at home to sort everything out! I've emailed Bristol University but they haven't replied yet.

    I assure you, if it's just one mark off, you won't go down a whole grade!
    Hmm :/ the grade boundaries are mega close though. I could only afford to lose 4 raw marks and then I would drop a grade

    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.
    Thank you for your amazing reply. Yes they changed my firm which was conditional now to unconditional for foundation year without telling me anything. My insurance is now unconditional, im happy to go into that BUT i need to try for qmul, i want to get into it.

    Right now im on my way to my grades, once i get them Im planning to write an email, and then call since i have lots to say because im not a normal student I have lots lots of relavant experience relating to the course, I want them to read my personal statement again. What is the best way to do that? And can i do this after 3? Contact them, or I need to contact qmul before 3, whats up with 3 oclock?

    That sounds really confusing.

    When you call universities always ask for the name and job title of the person you speak to - and if they make any promises or aren't very clear then ask if they can send you details in writing by email.

    Your PS will have been reread before making the changed course offer.
