    English Lit - D (I was ill in this exam and ended up vomiting)

    Psychology - B (It's a bloody miracle I got that grade)

    Philosophy - B (Is it just me, or have most people received quite low grades compared to our targeted and previous mocks?)

    Overall, not spectacular. But, it'll do. I'll probably look into getting some copyscripts though.

    My offer for Economics with Study in Continental Europe at Bristol was AAA including maths and I got A*AB (A* in econ, A in maths, and B in Spanish) and I got rejected. Is there any way to contact the university and ask them to reconsider?

    If they're your firm and they've rejected you, they've already considered whether to be lenient or not. You could call and ask again but it's a very slim chance that they'd change their mind having gone through the idea.

    Hi i really need help and im really frustrated so i got into my firm however because i hadnt completed these DBS checks and forms to fill in before late june it means now that i cant get in this year and would have to defer my place till next year. However i didnt recieve any email or anything through the post saying anything about these forms to complete however others unis did send this to me and i did complete and send it.

    The uni has said they have sent it and there isnt anything they can do since they are "full".
    I feel its unfair that i cant go because of these checks that i didnt recieve that apparently cannot be done retrospectively. Is there anything i can do appeal? I really need some help

    Thats great, I wonder what is taking so long, they've had the results since the weekend? Do they give out more offers than other uni's?
    No - it's a very competitive course with few places so I think they like to give the impression that they're mulling it over carefully. In reality I got my rejection an hour after that phonecall (because Durham's course regards one A* miss as an abject failure and probably automatically declines based on that alone :P).

    Really annoying though.

    Hi all,

    I know this is a bit off topic, but I failed to meet my offer for maths at Warwick. I needed 2A*2A ended up with A* in Maths, A in further, Bs in Chemistry and Physics. I wanted to ask for help and advice on me taking a year out, retaking some exams and reapplying. I am fairly confident I can do a lot better because some of the exams I done bad in were two or three grades below my mock results. I think it was due to Ramadan and fasting, as I usually leave revision late. I wanted to know if anyone knows of any opportunities for gap year placements, and how I would get predicted grades etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    No I don't
    You need to contact Unis to see whether you can get in through clearing. Your grades look good, imo.

    If not, you can take a gap year and reapply next year. Good luck though.

    Hi, I just did three paper for FM, but one of them was an A2 module (FP2). How do I then calculate the overall grade for all three modules combined? Would FP2 being A2 affect it in any way?

    Hi,

    First, I am not an expert on this matter, but I will give you my opinion.

    Have you checked whether other Universities that you won't mind attending are offering places through clearing? If you check and there are, then you can call to make your case. They may be willing to take you on.

    I am not a big fan of gap years, if you don't have anything useful to do. Many young people tend to use it for traveling, which is fair enough.

    If you are certain on taking a gap year, you can look for work placements for young people in research centers, banks, universities etc. There, you can improve your CV for your reapplication next year.

    as you are doing that scheme, you do retake your exams and attempt to improve your grades. In the end, you have better grades, work experience and a year off.

    Good luck.
