    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?

    Ahh noo, I hope and pray it goes up! But if not is there anything I can do to show Southampton University, I deserve a place on the course?
    Thanks for the help!

    The C in critical thinking wont usually matter as they will look at your other academic subjects first, and often they dont look at it at all because they exclude it from all requirements.

    Fab set of results, hope dentistry goes amazing!
