    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 !!!
    Yeah I think you're right! I guess if they didn't accept me then I'd get it priority remarked, but because they did it wouldn't change anything. Thanks!!

    My firm isn't in Clearing. So I have to just sit on my hands until the re-mark comes back? I've asked SOAS to extend the deadline for my provisional offer. I just feel a bit bad for Exeter in all this :/ Is there a deadline for when I can have them reject me? I have an idea it's 14 days from today? That's fine as my re-mark has been submitted and will be back within 12.
    See my reply - you don't use clearing to get back to your firm after a remark - there's a different process.

    Hey, I just got a unconditional offer to Chemistry and Mathematics. I applied to Biochemistry first but then the offer changed to Chemistry and Mathematics. Can the offer be changed again to Medical Chemistry and Mathematics if I asked? I got CCD as D is biology.

    BU still can't see that I'm in Clearing and told me to phone back at 3pm when Track updates to allow Clearing choices to be made But she asked me why I wanted to do the course and apparently it is 'exceptionally likely' that I will be made an offer...

    ... that's good, right?
    That's good

    I think you're going to be just fine :yes:

    I'm AS and I got BCDD which I'm a bit disappointed with and I'm really worried about whether I'll be able to pull off A2 or not

    I've dropped Economics which I got a D in because I thought I did well in it but apparently I didn't, plus I got a C in French which I'm also disappointed in as I want to continue at uni

    The thing is I'm going to have to retake French and Geography as well as doing A2 and I'm not sure I can handle it

    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
    How did you achieve that feat? I think you may have a career in Politics to be able to pull off that stunt. Well done!

    To change from Chemistry to Medicinal Chemistry is administratively easy, so you don't need to worry about that

    Start looking forward to the future? . You're probably just feeling relief. All of the stress you've been feeling recently is all over and out, and so you're calming down! Keep your mind active - plan for uni, go outside, eat ice cream... You'll feel right as rain by next week

    You need to speak to your school and your tutors about this. They know you and how you work best, so will be able to provide the proper advice

    Thanks for the advice, is A2 maths a big step up from AS ?
    C3 isn't that much of a jump and it is quite easy but C4 can be quite a bit more challenging for some. I don't usually study so i kept missing some marks everytime but I realised that PRACTICE is key for C4. The more you practise (by actually understanding the methods and see where you went wrong), the better you get. Approved by me. Haha. I would have missed a mark or two usually but by practising, I was able to get full UMS. some type of question show up in every paper and if you do a lot of past papers, you'll see a pattern in the questions. Good Luck with A2!! It's definitely doable, esp since it is Maths.

    Congratulations mate!Wow You're so lucky to get a place.. I'm applying for the same entry requirements with the same course on a different uni but was unsuccessful due to my GCSE grades 😑, will try again in a few minutes.
    Thank you!


    1. 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. 0

    Well done!


    Sounds really harsh?!
    I agree...! That said, they were very quick to say they'd accept a re-mark. Also, UCAS shows they only made the decision at 6.45am this morning, whereas my other friends with offers from this uni had their updates timestamped two days ago, so at least they seem to have spent quite a while agonising over the decision.

    See my reply - you don't use clearing to get back to your firm after a remark - there's a different process.
    Thanks, you've been such a breath of fresh air in this thread while I've been lurking and I really appreciate your help now. I'll get started on a second round of phone calls now.
