    I have called some places in Clearing for another course (neuroscience) and I told them my situation. Southampton said they were happy to take me but obviously I need to wait for my firm to make a choice now.

    I'm thinking of waiting it out and maybe taking a gap year, it's not my preferred route choice but I guess the fact that they are even considering me gives me some hope..
    As long as you are happy with a gap year then waiting it out could be worth it for medicine.

    Appreciate the advice, however funny story. The uni i got the clearing offer from was going to be my original firm choice, however they rejected me after the interview, so i firmed another uni.

    Couple months ago i had a change of mind and decided i wanted to do chemistry, which is what i applied and got the offer for just now. So actually this is basically my golden opportunity, it was one hell of a gamble relying on clearing but it worked. Im happy.
    :awesome:
    Oh well in that case you're all set.

    You can add a clearing choice before 3pm by phoning UCAS (if you want to get it locked in ASAP)

    Then you just need to sort out accommodation and update your finance stuff :yes:

    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.
    Ok, I will get my grades, relax, be me again and find my reasons, and I will double check with you before I call. Thank you very much!

    That's because a release sends you into clearing.

    Your insurance should be able to pick you back up from clearing. Which university is it?
    It's York St. John. They've asked me to email them, but your reply gives me some hope. Thanks

    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..
    Ive got my fingers crossed for you!

    Yeah don't panic

    If they say they're happy then add them on Track at 3pm (or phone UCAS if you get the ok from York St John before then)

    I got A*A*AA in maths, biology, chemistry and physics respectively. I got into my firm, even though they wanted an A* in chemistry and maths not biology. I was 2 marks away from an A* (one on each paper) in chemistry. Would getting a remark be pointless?

    Hard work and knowing the spec inside out. Practice, wider reading and complete honesty with your teacher about any gaps in your knowledge.

    Call and push them so you know what situation you're in. Not really fair for them to leave you waiting.

    Did they give you an estimate as to when it will change?

    No harm in giving it a go if you were only 2 marks off
