    You may be able to switch before you start, as in ring up today and see if that switch is possible with your results.

    You've got nothing to lose and it could be the best thing you do all day
    They say I haven't got the grades required
    I got BBB
    But they offered me English. I can't enrol for English really hoping to change to law. Incase I can't change.

    Congrats, for what course ?
    Thanks. I'm a bit shocked because I was predicted higher, but I'm happy to have got in. I'm going to be studying History and Sociology (joint degree) and hopefully go into teaching after I complete the degree.

    What about you? How did your results go?

    Advice please, If my remark does not go up (3UMS for a B) and get accepted into my firm (southampton), I have my insurance (Essex) which i don't really want to go to. If I wait for my remarks (10days aprox) will I have missed the chance to find a uni through clearing?
    All the help is extremely beneficial! Thank you!
    Clearing would have a lot less choice available then i m afraid.

    Thanks a lot to everybody here for their help and assistance. Despite my huge sadness and gutting results of CDD, with your help and a lot of witty phone calls, I managed to secure a place for Computer Science BSc at Goldsmiths UoL! That's normally an entry requirement of ABB!Thanks guys, I finally feel a lot better, and can smile again
    Im in a very similiar situation, what did you say, what did you mention to them? Im calling my uni as well.

    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 really is if a university suspects students are trying to get onto a competitive course like law through the back door.

    I was considering doing media and product design at my school and find if i can do graphic design at a different school becyase i want to do this at uni but my school doesen't offer it - what's your opinion?

    I'm also worried as all my friends dropped out and are going to do apprenticeships and my media coursework got marked down so much that it's actually unbelievable!
    It may be worth speaking with your media teacher(s) and considering a remark because that is a dramatic drop in grades.

    As for your friends dropping out and doing apprenticeships, if that is something you are interested in doing - great. If it isn't, stick to your own path. Your results are by no means bad and can always be improved upon if you're willing to resit a module/unit here or there.

    By the sounds of things I would be very worth your while researching other schools to see if you can do graphic design nearby, or media and product design as an AS alongside your A2s. Also have a look at some prospective universities offering the course you are interested in and see what subjects they like/accept and see how that affects your choices.

    Finally, remember that you have plenty of time to make these decisions. Don't rush and don't stress yourself out!

    To get an A*, you need 80% at AS, and 90% in your A2 modules. So if you're only one mark off 90% in your A2 modules, then by all means

    Im torn! If I go into clearing, and choose surrey, and my remark comes back and i have the grades to go to my firm choice (southampton) will accepting surrey via clearing mean I have to go there? Or will I still be able to go to southampton if i get the last grade to the B required?

    My mate hasn't received his grades properly. Only two of his subjects show up (BB), he can see the exam results for third subject and he worked out it would also be a B overall, but his grades still only show up as BB, instead of BBB. His UCAS track hasn't updated either. It's so weird, I didn't know this could happen. He's been trying to call the university but last I heard they were just saying they couldn't help him. What can he do? I feel so sorry for him, as he probably would have gotten into his firm (ABB offer) but now places are probably filling up.

    My first choice uni is chester which require 112 UCas points for the course, however I've got a strong portfolio as I currently work as a graphic designer in a large company.

    I really was aiming for AA B today but obviously this didn't happen. I really enjoy doing ALevels. One of my friends in media had her grade in media dropped from 78/80 to 60/80 and I had 79/80 and came out with 67/80 - but my teacher was really unhappy as she said they should let her know if they moderate down. My school is a brand new school and we're the first year group to do As's so it's all abit wishy washy.

    Do you think If I resit the Geog1 module and bring that up to a B and get a B in next year's modules I might get a B overall? Also my product design exam was horrible as I was the onyl to get a grade in the whole class - everyone else got a a U? Why is that?

    Well, luckily for me, I had really good GCSE grades. They noticed this, and they asked me to make my case. I mentioned how I have placed very well in several game development competitions, and have a game in the process of being released to the Play Store.
    They said I'd be called back by the Head of Dept.

    When they called back five minutes later, I nervously answered, and found it was actually the same guy! Turns out he just passed on my arguments and the Head instantly offered me a place Good luck to you my friend.

    Ohh I thought it was just 340 overall, most of my marks come from my AS papers so I don't think its such a good idea after all

    Tell him to call ucas, they have a qualifications team that should be able to help.
