    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
    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.

    So I'm still kinda numb.

    Got my B in maths which I wanted after the hell I've been through the past few years. However, due to EC's I didn't complete my biology or psychology exams this summer, and instead will be finishing them next summer. As mentioned previously on this thread I believed my results sheet to be incorrect as it gave me an overall grade for A2 biology of a B, but turns out Edexcel just gave me this grade in light of my EC's without me doing the exams, which I was not expecting as I really did not think they did this even for the worst EC's.

    Yep, I don't think it has hit me yet, but when it does will cry or whatever but will not let my depression or my predicted take over. I know what I want and I want to get it. :yep::yep::wings::wings::wink2::wink2:
    It's okay to cry and process however you need but do not let this set you back. It's motivation to absolutely nail your A levels!

    Oh, if your in As now going into A2 depending on the subjects you are taking the grades you get this year will become your predicted grades, and the will have to "retake" the exams again next year but the template and the questions will be different; as you will have to go in more depth/more essay questions.
    Your grades will impact your application from what I see, they were decent/high grades so congrats!!

    What will you want to remark?
    Wondering wether to get the creative writing remarked - considering throughout the year my teacher targeted me an A/B. Yet not sure wether it would be worth it as I'm dropping it anyway, and AS levels are no longer as important from my year forward due to the changes to AS/A level.. (looking to go to York, UCL, Birmingham or St Andrews to study english lit)

    Thanks Jo

    Do you think I should get a remark for A-level english literature I just need 1 UMS point to go from C to B. Is it worth it, even though I got into my firm.
    From experience- yes. You're way off the D so it's very low risk. Grades in subjective subjects can change dramatically, although there has been changes to remarking this year. It just means it's harder to get a higher grade, but equally so it's harder to get a lower one. I'd go for it.
