    I didn't get in my firm, is it worth ringing them up? Also I'm not sure of what to say, can anyone give advice?
    You can try, but if you've been rejected, they may not take you.

    Just for info purposes - My daughter just had her UCAS track updated and has been accepted into Durham for Geophysics - her offer was AAB and her grades were ABB (but she was only one ums mark off an A on one of the Bs) so Durham are just taking there time
    Congratulations! . Will you pass them on for us please?

    It's not worth it generally. You're into uni!

    Once you're in, you're in. The remark won't change anything but it's up to you.

    Notes, flashcards and some past papers. I think that I did a lot of work for my AS, but it can't have been that effective
    That's a good place to start. Make sure you tick off your learning objectives as you go, so you know you can do everything that could come up.

    Also, make a timetable for revision and stick to it.

    One of the easiest things you can do, but also the most overlooked, it re-reading your class notes/work in the evening after your day of studying. It's been shown to improve your retention and recall of information significantly!

    Group studying is also great, it makes things a bit more fun and you can hear the information in different ways from different people, which I find can make things much clearer. Sometimes I struggled to understand my teacher's interpretation of the material.

    If it was an option, you could also advertise for an additional tutor and have one-to-one sessions as and when you need them.

    Got 2 As at AS in Drama and Maths.

    Our school is half way through the reforms so my other two subjects (Chem and bio) are linear courses.

    Can't decide which one out of drama and maths to drop. I'm applying for medicine. Enjoy both courses equally. C3 and C4 scares me though - already struggling. Predicted A in Maths and A* in Drama.

    Eeeek what do I do?!
    This seems like a no brainer, drop maths! Just have a quick check online that universities will accept a more vocational subject such as drama, but from my knowledge most are not to bothered.

    Gotta think whether it's worth it or not. You've got your place at university and you'll need to pay money for a remark with no guarantee of whether it will go up or not (bearing in mind that they're now a lot stricter with what should be remarked and not this year).

    You'll need to inform the university that you're getting your papers remarked. They're recommended to keep your offer open until the 31st August BUT they are not obliged to.

    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:


    Are you still conditional on Track?

    If it says Unconditional, then a remark won't change anything :nah:

    That depends on the Uni. When I went to Warwick, they didn't email for 2 weeks!

    Personally I wouldn't worry too much about your exact grade with A-level. You've still got an A from the sounds of things which is an extremely good grade to have. First year at university is not always easy (trust me on this, I still haven't recovered from the 15+ exams I've had last year :emo:) and as your module grades will still be registered on your transcript (and with some universities, it even contributes to your degree classification!) I wouldn't risk compromising my grades at uni.

    Nope. Not worth it. Don't do it. Focus entirely on being brilliant next year. Year 1 may not count towards your degree classification but it will be on your transcript and it's important to get those foundations.

    Can anyone help? I got 3 B's which I'm happy with considering I'm eligible for adjustment and can apply for better universities, but I'm sort of in between the top grades and universities and the lower ones, and I need some advice for adjustment. I phoned up Reading who want ABB and on the phone,I felt they were tempted to offer me a place, but I didn't quite have enough and so they will only take me if I get a remark up to an A which is unlikely. I'm trying Liverpool but their phone lines seem to be busy constantly. What can i do to convince a better uni I can be successful at their uni???
