    Consider phoning them and letting them know how close you were, since I dont think they see your ums

    Also maybe you could get a priority remark if you think the examiner made a mistake with your grade

    There's no universal answer for that I'm afraid Your teachers will usually give you a couple of weeks to refresh your Year 12 content anyway so I wouldn't stress too much about it. Just enjoy your holiday for now!

    It's at the discretion of the university. Some unis are lenient and will let you switch course IF it's not a popular one and thus has space. Some have common Year 1 modules so will let you transfer between them at any time before they start to specialise (for example I went from Economics to Economics & Finance at my uni because they have the same modules for Year 1, with Business Economics also an option). If it's a really popular course with substantially different course material you may struggle to do so.

    I've told my students to start refreshing a couple of topics now to hit the ground running when we get back but if you haven't been instructed to do that then take it at your own pace. The PS Help service is coming back soon - we'll be happy to help with that statement

    I've already phoned and they said they couldn't accept me with my current grades, so I've submitted for a remark as a particular exam was a lot lower than expected.

    Mainly fuming because my offer was for English for A*AA (achieved A*AB) and I achieved full UMS in English Lit, which I told them, but they still want that half a mark in RS of all things.
