    Brilliant! Well done.

    I'm happy with my insurance but it's annoying that my firm are keeping me hanging! They've also offered me an alternate course that is absolutely not what I want to do and whose grades are much lower than I achieved. Whyyyyy?
    What's the alternative? Yay for being happy with your insurance though! Have fun

    I am screwed

    I wanted to do law at SOAS....they are full but offered me english. I like english but want to do law..

    It seems that if i accept english...i can't change to law many people say its so hard to change. Also what i do if they don't let me change? Like you can't change in the second year can you?
    You're not the first person even in this thread to say about going to SOAS to do english but swap to Law.

    It's not going to happen - they're not stupid and they wont allow people in "through the back door". You can risk it but only do that if you're happy taking the original degree if they decline a request to swap....if you don't want to do english then don't take the place. There's quite a few places offering law

    Hello, I received my AS results today. Sociology A, English Lit B, History B. Yet to my surprise I got a D in creative writing, despite my teacher continuously telling me I should be aiming for a B or A. Firstly I was wondering how badly this would impact me when I'm applying to uni... (looking to go to York, UCL, Birmingham or St Andrews). Secondly would it be worth getting remarked?
    Hope every one got the grades wanted !!!

    Thanks Jo.

    Where on SFE does it let you update your uni details? I can't find it
    I have no idea about that -

    Luckily SFE have a page on TSR explaining it http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...-clearing-2016

    Has anybody else had very odd results in WJEC ICT as level today? I've got A's all year long and only dropped 3 marks in the mock out of 100, then today I got a D on ICT1 and a C overall. It doesnt really matter to me that I got a C because im dropping it and unis wouldnt like it anyway but I want to know if anybody else has experienced anything similar.

    aqa eng lit is unfair - everyone in my year marked down
    AQA Eng Lit was harsh this year!

    (Original post by Aurora_Boreal1s)
    I got my A-level results earlier and I was predicted ABBC but I managed to get A*AAB, with the A* in Spanish, the A in English Language, an A in Maths and a B in biology (I only got a C in the Unit 5 exam). I am so happy and I think I will be going to the University of Iceland (where I'm from) to do Biology. I think I am going to withdraw from my firm (University of Manchester) but I haven't decided yet.

    Congrats to everyone in the class of 2016! :badger::badger::badger::badger::badger:
    Oh wow! Congratulations! Enjoy Iceland or Manchester. I'm sure both will be brilliant.

    I didn't do well this year but will do well next year, I will make sure of it and for the rest of you, if you did meh you will be fine too and you did great congrats!!!!
    That's the spirit - it may not be what you wanted but sometimes the scenic route can be just as interesting.

    How do you mean?? I was looking to drop it anyway, as it's an AS. Just wondering what sort of impact it would have on my application and wether to get remark?

    Sorry maybe I'm not understanding you properly??
    ahaha

    Is it OK to tell wait a wekk - 10 days to tell my insurance choice that I won't be going, while I try to get into my firm?
    That's fine. You could tell them the day before your course starts that you're not turning up

    My school is handling the transition really weirdly so I only did one AS in geography this year. Beasted it lads, full UMS! So happy
    Most schools are working the same way. We're all winging it for now.

    Congrats!

    How long can I leave it to tell my insurance choice that I am not going there? I've been rejected by my firm but accepted by insurance, but I think I will try and get into my firm, perhaps on a different course. Seeing as this might take up to a week, is it OK for me to leave it that long before telling my insurance I won't be going?
    My opinion is to wait. You don't want to turn down your insurance, then get rejected again from your firm on the second course. You will be left with nothing.

    Wait for a week, if you can. At least, you know that you have a place at Uni.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for your response

    Are you sure they would be fine releasing me so close to the start date?? It's unlikely i'll leave it that long :P, but up to say the end of August, would they definitely be fine with me saying i'll not be going?
