    Hey guys, as terrible as they are I'm not ashamed to post them on here ... Can someone please please help me and tell me whether I got an E or a D overall?? I did my AS and A level biology in one year (I've done horrifically but as I'm on the phone to clearing now I just don't understand my overall grade)
    (By the way I was predicted an A haha so as you can imagine this is a bit of a shock)

    It looks like an E overall at A2. Very tough doing it all in one year!

    Depending what these two courses are, you *may* be able to transfer. Either way I hope you enjoy the new course and have a good time at university
    Transfer to my initial one? and Thank you

    Those are great grades - any thoughts on what you'd like to do (what was the A* in?)
    The A* was in a BTEC xD .. and I'm not sure what to do ... maybe get a Subway Sandwich for starters xD

    That's it! Your university will contact you in due course I'm sure At current, their admissions department may be busy with clearing so give them a couple of days for emails to be sent out. Congrats again on getting in!
    Thanks so much!

    Hey, ive been given a place at The Uni of Sheffield. I was wondering do i have to confirm this offer in any way, or do i just leave it and will receive emails about my course at a later date. Thanks in advance.
    As long as it says sheffield has confirmed your place on track then you just have to wait for further details now

    I don't understand it at all the "cash in" grade boundaries say it's out of 600 UMS for the whole A level which I think with everything gives me a D overall
    Go off the cash in grade.

    Usually teachers are happy to predict up to one grade above what you achieved at AS

    You should have got a paper before that which said your overall grade?

    I got into my firm but I want to go to a different uni. However, Im 20 UCAS points off the clearing requirement for the other uni.
    I have called them up to ask if there's a point of me rejecting my firm and having them release me to clearing, but all I was told both times when I called was that they have noted it on the system to give me a call from the subject department and that they will call sometime today.

    Do I call them up again or do I just call my firm, have them release me into clearing and then call the other uni again to see if they will give me a verbal offer?

    Hi,

    So I've just got my AS results, got AABB.
    I'm dropping Biology (got a B), but keeping Psychology (also a B). Just wondering why we take external exams if they don't even count towards our final A2 grade in the new specification?

    Also... I don't know how I feel about my grades, are they good enough? 😞

    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, so I got my grades... I got BCD, I needed ABB, and in clearing its saying BBB, according to this: http://search.ucas.com/course/entryr...rsedetailsmenu

    I double checked all the units, not close enough to any higher grades to mention. I know I might have lost QMUL now but I still want to try, how do you think I should approach the call?

    HA - that's sounds like a plan, some fuel for your brain and your soul (that means you should get cookies too ).

    Are you going to have a look around through clearing? Or take a year out to replan/retake/reapply? - or are you still Yr12 and I'm asking silly questions?

    If sheffield was one of your choices and show confirmed on Track then you're all set.
    Read your AS12 letter on track - there are different letters for different universities explaining if you need to do anything to confirm your place.

    Great initiative, but I would wait for a call from the department before asking your firm choice to release you into Clearing. 20 UCAS points is not far off and you've shown genuine interest in the uni and the course, so I would things look positive for you, just best not to jump the gun!

    Good luck and keep us updated if you have the time

    That depends on how badly you want to go to a different uni, getting released will take time so if you want to switch i d get it sorted quickly.
