    So is this the time when we all go to sleep and realise today was all a dream and things will actually be awful when we wake up?
    omg I literally had the exact same thought after I looked at my result and at one point I had to slap myself to make sure it was real life lol

    Feel a bit late to this, but I got ABBE in geography, chemistry, biology and maths respectively, will my E in maths prevent me from doing chemistry at uni?
    Depends on the uni and if you're trying to go for top unis it wont just be the E it will be the two B's and the E that could hinder your chances, BBE doesnt look good especially B in subject you want to study

    Hi, I wanna know if I have added a clearing choice, does the uni verify my results via UCAS or it needs me to send them evidence?

    Did you not tell them? I think UCAS confirms it but you'll need to provide evidence (ie. your results slip) once you arrive.

    I just woke up right now and I'm trying to figure out if yesterday was just a dream.

    I feel so ****. I didn't get into Warwick to study law. I got AAB when I needed AAA.

    *I'm not interested in going to SOAS (my insurance) so now I have 3 options:

    1. *remark my history paper that I got a A in and appeal to Warwick if it goes up*
    2. *Retake History and take a gap year, and reapply next year*
    3. Search clearing (but I honestly doubt it'll be good because it's so late now)*

    I hate myself so much lmao *

    I'm sorry about Warwick Have you got an email or text from them confirming you have an offer? If you've got that then I wouldn't worry as you have written proof. If the offer only lasts 24 hours I'd phone them later today to see what is going on Which uni are you trying to get into?

    I'd say put option 1 to the side because remarking a paper where you already got an A in is unlikely to change. You should phone Warwick and see if they'd still take you if you manage to convince them, so get them to reconsider you.
    If that doesn't work then, you should search through clearing for other universities who are offering to study law. If you don't find something suitable, then consider looking at other courses available in clearing for Warwick / other universities
    Finally, if this doesn't work either, then that leaves you with option 2

    At the top universities, yes it will. Maths and Chemistry at B or above is a usual requirement for them. But check out the entry requirement pages of other Universities to find out exactly where most of them stand. However, if a University doesn't require maths, they will disregard your E grade, and just look at the ABB, which is a fantastic set of results, no matter what any previous poster has told you about BBE looking bad :facepalm:

    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.
    Yeh it is really strange because they are adamant they sent it out through EMAIL AND POST! My mother always checks the mail and if anything is addressing me e.g unis etc shell let me know or open them on my behalf she her self is 100℅ certain I didn't receive no reminders no dBs forms in the post. My emails never get deleted yet I have got a 10 or so emails from the uni which is just general emails such as "have a live chat" "nightlife" etc. Nothing no phone call.mail or.email. I don't understand how I can get penalised for something I didn't do. Also unis can't be "full" since caps were removed? I'm going to speak later on today.

    Continue to contact them. I suggest that you go to visit, if you can. That way, you can ask for evidence that they sent you the email. If you can print out your email inbox chain, then take that along.

    You need to be persistent, but polite. Try to see whether an influential person in the department like the Head of Department can intervene on this matter. Most of the time, these people are Admission Tutors and are following processes, so it isn't their fault.

    Good luck.
