    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...
    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.

    get a priority remark, worth a try if its a singular mark
    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.

    Don't stop at one offer.

    You should be trying to get between 3 and 10 clearing offers before picking your favourite.

    You can refer yourself on track after 3pm

    It's incredibly unlikely you drop a whole grade but it's your choice

    Don't question it; if they've accepted you on UCAS it's official! Congratulations

    I managed ACC and still got into my first choice of Cardiff where I'll be studying Eng Lit. I feel like I've got away with it. This is how it must feel to be Big Sam.

    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?
    You're welcome! I would advise you to call as soon as possible once you've got your grades and have all your reasons in order. Emails may get a sluggish response as unis are VERY busy at the moment. I take is qmul is your first choice?

    Clearing is open for several days, so don't worry, but popular courses/unis will fill up faster. 3pm is not a deadline, but you cannot select a Clearing choice on UCAS Track until that time. You can and should, however start ringing around qmul (and others if necessary) before that time. Here is a useful set of guidelines that might help you. There is a list of UCAS timings at the bottom of the article.

    Best of luck! I'm here all day.

    I'm still in the unknown regarding my AS Level results. Everyone else popped up to school at 10 to get them while I live too far to do that. Have to wait until midday to get mine via email.
    I feel sick.

    Does anyone have any tips on how to drastically improve AS grades during Year 13? I would like to improve my Biology and Chemistry results from a D and an E to at least Bs ideally! :/
    Thanks

    Hope its not gone to badly x
    I got a B but I needed an A. The uni haven't made up their mind yet and when they called they said it can take a week so I'm just really hoping that they let me in since I only dropped one grade, that being said, it is Medicine though, so we'll see..
