    I wrote this message before but am pasting it again just incase some people have missed and can get some more suggestions.
    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 receive 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 receive that apparently cannot be done retrospectively. Is there anything i can do appeal? I really need some help

    If you're in to University, don't bother with the remark :nah: . In 3 years time, no-one will even pass a second glance at your A-levels, and it's worth saving the money

    Congratulations at your placement though! :party:
    Thank you for your reply kind sir!

    Just wanted some advice on what to take next year. I got

    Maths A 262/300
    Geography A 190/200
    Biology A
    Chemistry B

    I'm buzzin' about my results, and want to study Biology at uni, but was wondering would it be better taking Geography over Chemistry and most likely get a higher grade, cause hoping to go to a top uni, or is it kind of essential to take Chemistry, I do like Chemistry and at this rate I'm considering all 4, but I doubt anyone would advise that.

    Any advice?

    My offer from Imperial was A*AA but i got A*A*B and was rejected
    I'm afraid A*A*B is just not the standard for computing at Imperial, and very much doubt they will overturn their offer. People have been rejected with better.

    I do hope you have an insurance.

    Do both no question IMO

    if you're aiming for imperial/oxbridge then certainly do chemistry

    for geo 190/200 is so high that even if you do poorly at A2, you'll have an A overall.

    Hi,

    sorry to hear that. It is a strange story that I think you should appeal or write a formal letter with supporting evidence if available. You should also seek to contact someone with authority like the Head of Department or a University Professor in your course. they may intervene on your behalf.

    If you got into your firm choice, then you got in and they cannot be full. The UCAS system is a contractual agreement and once you meet your grades and the conditions attached to your offer, then I don't think that they can turn you down or defer your course, if it is not agreed by you.

    If you can visit your university, then I suggest that you do that and put your case forward in person. Sending emails and phone calls may not be that effective. You should also show that you completed the DBS checks for other Universities and that you DID NOT receive the check forms from your firm choice.

    If all goes against you and you feel that you want to defer your course, then feel free to do so. However, you must ensure that you have exhausted every option from your point of view.

    It is also weird that they did not send your reminders to complete the forms, if it claim that they sent the forms to you. Ask them to show you the evidence that they sent you the email to complete the DBS checks.

    Good luck though. I hope it works out well in the end.

    AS:

    A in Politics 90% ums
    A in English 83% ums
    B in Economics
    B in History

    I'm 3 marks off an A in both History and Economics. I'm planning to get all 4 papers remarked. Do you think I'll get the three extra marks? I know they've toughened up remarks, but still? Is there a good chance for 3 marks in each subject or a poor one?
