    It always seems like the end of the world before you get your grades :lol: Glad to hear you've done better than you expected!
    It does I actually cried when I read them because it was such a shock! Thank you! How did you do? I even managed to boost my resit from a U to a C - and i generally thought that I had done as badly as before :rofl:

    If you're into Uni it might not be worth it!
    (Original post by The Financier)
    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.
    Ok thanks guys, I'll think over it some more, hopefully my school will pay but if not, then I'll just leave it and keep my money lol

    I am sooooo happy right now

    I done horrible guys i wanted to do medicine at university
    I got CDDD at AS which is bad because my predicted me AABC for A2. I have dropped maths at AS and carrying on with BIO CHEM Physics. Does the maths grade count towards anything because it was not reformed? Anyone have any advice to give me on how to apply to university if i still want to medicine? Any help would be great
    If the maths is a D grade dropped at AS it may exclude you from some universities which look at AS grades and require a certain standard if they are taken.

    Providing you can get AAA/AAB predicitons (ideally with chem and bio being at an A) you should be able to apply to some med schools. Also note that many medical schools with compare achieved AS to predicted A2, often they will class as being predicted an A from a D as unrealistic im afraid.

    The one thing I will say is consider very careful if an achievement of CDDD at AS something which was because you didnt work hard enough or was it for a different reason. Do you really think you can get the A*AA/AAA needed for medicine at A2. I suggest you have a look at your study technique and see where you went wrong. If you would like to discuss this at greater length then please PM me.

    It may be a wise idea to consider taking a gap year and applying with achieved A2 grades rather than wasting your time applying when your not very competative, applying with A2 grades means you can focus on getting AAA at A2 without the stress of applications, you can get work experience and voluntary work in your gap year and Achieved Alevels often gets you a better chance of an interview.

    Please pm me if you want to speak more about anything.

    Hi guys, first of all congratulations to everyone! Also, if anyone has any advice would be much appreciated! So I got ABC but my firm (southampton) wanted ABB. However my C was 3 UMS off a B. I got a priority remark for my edexcel drama paper. Does anyone know if I'm likely to get 2 raw marks?

    It's difficult to say how likely you are to get more marks. They've toughened up their criteria for remarks this year so it might be harder than before. Still, an extra two marks is definitely possible.

    YAY!


    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)
    Sigh yeah that's the situation, I'll call up but my hopes won't be high

    So I got my results and got the grades required to get in but UCAS still hasn't updated. I phoned the uni and they said it is due to a high number of applications and they are still considering my place, it should be sorted within 2 days.

    Is this normal? If for some reason I dont get in will I even have time to go through clearing as I really dont want to go to my insurance now?

    Their grade requirements for the subject will give you a good idea of what they're after and consequently whether it's enough Your school will also provide grade predictions of what they think you can achieve which the unis will look at when considering your application.

    Ok could really do with some help.

    I got my grades which were AAB but my fourth grade I believe is messed up.

    It's for AS OCR Photography and it said Unclassified with 0 points next to it - despite me sitting both five hour exams, submitting 2 FULL folders worth of work complete with editing, scamps, mind maps, plans, final images and more!

    This can't be right, surely?
