    If we get our papers remarked and they change, can a university revert the rejection?
    If it says Unconditional, then a remark won't change anything :nah:

    How long do universities take to email you themselves? Birmingham haven't said anything yet D:

    now i'm impatient for my accommodation offer as well
    That depends on the Uni. When I went to Warwick, they didn't email for 2 weeks!

    I am sooooo happy right now
    I got an A for AS Maths and to my surprise, I got an A for all 3 modules- C1, C2 and S1
    I hope I can maintain it for next year though
    Well done!

    Anyone else feel disappointed? I met my firm offer but messed up 3 of my 11 exams which cost me an A* in maths/econ, is it worth me resitting individual exams at uni next year?
    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.

    Got into my uni, but got AAB - the B was in geography my strongest subject, and I'm only 3 points off an A - worth remarking or should I leave it?

    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???

    Does anyone else who's gotten into the University of Birmingham know when to expect an email from them, particularly regarding accommodation? I'm watching my emails like a hawk to make sure I don't miss out but would like a timeframe

    If you're into Uni it might not be worth it!

    As I've said to a lot of people, you need to consider whether it's actually worth it for you. You've got your place already but you'd need to pay up for the remark with no guarantee of them remarking in your favour and this year they're being very strict on what is considered something that can be increased in a remark.

    Did Graphics, Photography and Maths and was stressing out on trying to get AAB since my UMS points were low last year for graphics and photography. Ended up getting 2 A*s and an A and I honestly don't know how! I hope everyone got what they wanted!

    Aberystwyth has just released me I have a Clearing number!! For some reason though BU's system can't see that I'm in Clearing and they told me to phone back at 1pm. I'm actually sort of happy now because I'm one step closer. Still a way to go though!
    YAY!

    (Original post by Vannzzoo)
    Nah it says unsuccessful
    Oh I see

    (sorry it's all a bit dribs and drabs let me check I understand: Warwick is your firm with an AAB offer, you got ABC and they've rejected you. You're now unconditional with your insurance (?) but because Warwick are asking for ABB for your course in clearing you're trying to get back to them?
    If that's the case then I'm afraid you're unlikely to be successful. You can try re-ringing or asking to speak to someone more senior but I wouldn't hold out much hope - they wont have rejected you without consideration about whether they can take you with those grades - there's a good chance that they have evidence that people with ABC (or a C in that subject) are likely to fail or drop out of the course)

    Will Unis become more lenient with clearing later in the day? If they can't fill places with their initial entry requirements?

    AS student here, took Government and Politics, History, Economics and English Literature - I was predicted all A's for the whole year, never believed it, set myself targets of AABB for this year, and just got my results: All A's, full marks in politics. I'm shaking, feeling slightly sick, and immensely overwhelmed.

    To be honest I just wanted to ask if there's any A level students here that took 4 A levels in year 13? If so, how did you do? Did it impact your results, or do you think you did the same as you would've taking only 3? I love all of my subjects, and I've been struggling all year to decide which one to drop - today didn't help T_T I just really want to know whether, with taking 4 A levels, I can still get As or A*s in all of them!! Probably not, and it's not something I'm seriously considering, but curious either way...

    Well done everyone, be proud of your results no matter what, and remember that these results aren't the be all, end all of your life ♥


    P.S sorry if this has already been asked/answered, but I can't go through all 450+ pages of this forum D:

    I think the best thing for you to do is apply once you have your A2 grades in hand but will tag some medicine people in who are much more knowledgeable than me (okay tags are still broken so i'd recommend you post in our medicines section, someone will be able to help there).
