    If you're still interested in English then Goldsmiths or Birkbeck in London would both be worth contacting - they're more likely to look beyond the number of A levels and listen to your ECs

    Alternatively would taking another A level (or another qualification) at college this year be an option?

    I've been rejected from my first choice Cambridge' they wanted A*A and I got AA. I only did 2 A2s due to severe ECs.

    A English lit
    A religious studies

    What do I do now?
    Sorry for the sad news. Do you have an insurance choice, where you will be happy to enrol? if I may ask, what is it?

    I think you should start looking closely at your insurance choice. Good luck

    My offer from Imperial was A*AA but i got A*A*B and was rejected
    Jesus man, that's really harsh. How close to an A was your B?

    But seriously, two A*s and a B is some seriously good work. I'm sure there are lots of good unis out there that would be more than happy to take a candidate like that.

    quick question, is there an average ETA on how long it takes for the university to confirm your clearing choice? I'm assuming it's whenever the storms have died down and the phone calls stop?

    This is the first year people have been able to refer themselves in normal office hours (last year it was 5pm - the years before that 6pm that track gave the option)....so it's difficult to say

    In the past it would have been 12 hours or so - basically waiting until people got into the office on friday morning and started working through them.

    This year some might get sorted this evening

    They tend to do them in batches as they come through. If you had verbal confirmation then no need to worry, enjoy the rest of your day.
