    Yes, but you'd have to ring your insurance to be released.
    I see, thank you!

    Surely they will still be asking for AAA though? :/
    I'm pretty sure that will be the case considering that they ask for A*AA in the first place, so perhaps they will only go as low as AAA.

    there's something very brutal about your results being a click away on track. its literally is a matter of seconds from waking up to finding out whether you've got into your firm choice. bit like an injection. you click 'log in' and within a split second you know. ARGH! at least going up to school and getting an envelope feels ritualistic, drags the process out allowing for mental preperation etc...anyway, just wanted to put that out there. GOOD LUCK YOU GUYS.

    Now I can sleep with ease and hope everything is fine tomorrow.

    Woah, a lot of solid courses from Manchester (took a decent university at random).

    What the hell happened at Manchester?
    Yeah.

    Durham too is in clearing for a fair few courses. Been some sort of a bloodbath with A levels this year it seems.

    I'd be on the All Saints campus, I've said my first choice to be Oxford Court, then Victoria Halls, then I don't remember the other 3 :L
    I'd be on All Saints too, wahey! I apparently get sent a list of 4 and I've got to choose which one I want, what a nightmare

    Hmm my course is in clearing, yay or nay? I was kind of expecting the grades to be lower? Anyone know if the grades go down in clearing at all? Or are they always the same?
    I've been hastily researching the same thing for the better part of today!
    We can't really know if it's a good thing or a bad thing. It's just a thing (as I've seen written many times today!) It means your Uni is looking for more people to join the course.
    As for clearing grades, it's difficult to predict. Some Unis have the required grades up next to their subject already, for others, we'll have to wait and see. Sometimes they go down, sometimes they don't change.
    I wish I knew! I have my own strange, little theories, but I wouldn't want to mislead you/jinx anything Good luck for tomorr-- today! :eek:

    Are you AS or A2? I would probably do the same if I was A2.
    A2, I breezed through AS. In fact, I even laughed about my bad ones.
    Oh how a year can change you....

    How is that a nightmare? You get to decide where to stay.
