    Are predicted grades usually above AS grades
    Not necessarily- it will depend on your school.

    You should have got a paper before that which said your overall grade?
    Hey! I'm an external candidate and the college that distributed my results is a 2/3 hour drive away so I'm having them posted but she emailed me them there - tbh I can't do anything with those grades anyway I have one last resort option but if that's fails I'm going back to college for a year

    A*AB...any chance of medicine or nah? I didn't apply last year so I'm applying this year
    Medicine is so competitive, I'm not sure!
    How about 6 year courses?

    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?
    First, well done. They may not have been what you were expecting, but they're definitely good enough to see you to university.

    You are genuinely keenly interested in QMUL, so set yourself up somewhere quiet with good phone reception and be ready to sell yourself (in a clam and collected manner!). There is no harm in calling them up.
    Make sure you have your UCAS Track/Clearing numbers to hand before you call. They will want to know your grades and will most likely give you the same answer they already have at this point, but you can ask to be kept in consideration or 'on hold' in case they have spaces available closer to the end of the Clearing period (which differs by university and each Clearing period).

    If you get chance reiterate all the positives you have mentioned in your personal statement and and other extras you think may be relevant.

    Finally, depending on the outcome of that call, don't be too disheartened. You have a solid set of grades and there is no reason you won't still be able to call around other unis (in addition to your insurance choice) and re-evaluate.

    I wish you the absolute best of luck with this. Go get 'em!

    I got my AS maths result and I got an A overall with:
    C1-88 UMS
    C2-72 UMS
    S1-90 UMS
    in total i got 250 UMS
    is it worth retaking C2 next year ?
    Yes absolutely ... I went from 75 UMS in C2 in AS to 95 UMS in retake ... C2 is extremely easier when you retake because it ties in well with the other A2 units.

    Deffo get remarks, are you mad?!? If you don't get them remarked your deffo gunna regret. So much to gain, nothing to lose.

    Congratulations on these stunning results

    victoria98 I honestly don't think it is necessary for you to get a remark. A, because you're already in and B, you don't want to risk dropping a grade no matter how small that risk may be. I would say just allow it and enjoy uni !!!

    I got A*A*AA in maths, biology, chemistry and physics respectively. I got into my firm, even though they wanted an A* in chemistry and maths not biology. I was 2 marks away from an A* (one on each paper) in chemistry. Would getting a remark be pointless?

    I was in a similar position last year, got A*A*AA, 1 mark away in further maths.
    Got 2 maths scripts (cheaper) and checked the mark scheme myself, there was nothing they marked wrong.

    With maths it is very black and white though, no arguing with answers most of the time.

    But if you get a first/2:1 at Uni, nobody will really care about not having an extra A* imo.

    It was just for myself, but every now and then I do think about being 1 mark off

    It's harder than trying to do it now, might not be possible at all.

    I don't know what to do. I just got my AS results and I got these results:

    Media AQA: B
    Product Design AQA: C
    Geography AQA: D

    I am really not happy with geography and my media coursework mark went down by 10 marks after exam board moderation. I have been advised to stay and continue with these alevels at my sixth form and to retake the geography unit 1 paper next year as this is what dragged me down.

    Is this the right pathway, do you think I can succed with getting A BB next year if I put lot's of work in?

    It's not always as difficult as you think. The hard part is getting into the university, not switching between courses. Ring up and ask or drop them an email!

    It will be very difficult unless you retake the B, but even then your options may be limited. :sadnod:
