    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?

    which university?

    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?
    Im not doing the foundation year, im happy with my insurance, BUT i want to tro to get in to qmul for my original course. I want them to read my personal statement again, im not a normal student, I have lots of relating experience to the course...

    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.
    Oh i see, have you go a phone to call them ?

    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.

    Like I said above - they'll already have reread it.

    Get your grades and ring them if you like...but don't expect them to change their mind. They've had your grades since friday night and have made you the offer of a foundation instead. If you don't want that (and they wont change it when you phone them - don't email) then after 3pm you'll be able to decline the changed course offer and go to your insurance instead.

    I still got into uni and I'd rather not risk it dropping a lot (doubt it would though) and it would essentially be something to feed my ego so I don't really mind. I mean I can live with it and after uni it won't mean much because my degree will be considered more highly so I don't think it's worth it.
