    All confirmed on Track now Accommodation sorted, student finance changed, postal address on UCAS changed to my parents' because I might move out of my current accommodation before they send anything... everything is perfect, just waiting for my login details to get on the BU portal
    Just wanted to say congrats! After all the changes regarding your course choice and the worry and stress around exams and results it's good to see you sorted and happy! Really hope all goes brilliant from here on - good luck

    And on a general note - well done to everyone - you survived the dreaded results day!!! Wishing you good luck in the next phase.

    If you re-sit, then yes. If you re-mark, then it's the latest result which counts :yep:

    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
    *

    Hey, sorry I just realised that I meant to write I got a *B in history. I was 4 marks off an A. Do you know who I contact to try and convince them? I remember the law department said on their website they'd consider people who went to open days and showed an interest in Warwick. *

    No, I'm totally freaking out, not even like a welcome email or anything. It also said on my track that is actually been confirmed on 15th of August 😂

    Some Universities won't email you for up to two weeks, some will send you a welcome pack in the post. Just because you haven't heard, even though A-level Results Day finished 10 hours ago and Clearing isn't closed yet, doesn't mean it's a bad thing. Enjoy the fact you've got into University!

    Once your place is confirmed you don't have to do anything afterwards, right? Like phoning them up to accept the place.

    Hey, many of you might remember me posting about my stress and anxiety a couple of days before results day.

    I'd just like to thank everyone for their support here, and them dank memes. I just about made my firm uni offer, though I don't even know if I want to go there anymore.

    Best of luck to everyone for the future, I'm sure you've all done well, regardless of the grades. You should be immensely proud of yourself for making it through 14+ years of the education system!

    Yeah, once your place is confirmed there's usually nothing else you need to do offer-wise (edit: PQ brings up a good point that it's dependent on the AS12s though it is the norm not to need anything else to confirm your place). You might have some stuff from your uni later about what they'd like you to do (registration etc.) but as you've met the requirements you're definitely going.

    Congratulations! The days before you get your results are some of the more anxious ones for most people as well but now it's done and out of the way it'll feel great to have the feeling off your back. Have a great time at your firm uni!

    I'm doubting the idea of going to university this year now :/ i couldn't get my course changed so i'm stuck on a course that i'm not 100% confident that i'm happy about, and i got my accommodation offer yesterday and they've given me the accommodation that i put last on my list and there's no chance of changing. it's just really bummed me out and made the whole uni idea a bit less appealing

    part of me wants to reapply for the course i wanted next year with the grades that I have now and then reapply for accommodation too. but that scares me cos i might not even get an offer omg

    Well done in getting into your firm choice. What is that about you not knowing whether you want to go there anymore? Is something wrong with the course or uni?

    You may simply just have fear of the unknown. If I may ask, which University will you be enrolling in?

    Good luck for the future and I am sure things will get better.

    Do you have a log in for an applicant portal (https://leedsportal.leeds.ac.uk/uollogin/login.html ?)
    If not then http://students.leeds.ac.uk/info/101...7/new_students is what they'll probably be directing you towards soon.

    https://twitter.com/UniversityLeeds/...27931953856512 talks about specific twitter accounts to follow if you're on twitter - there;s likely to be similar things on facebook

    Read your AS12 letter on Track.

    There's different letters for different universities - some need you to do something to confirm your place (most don't though )

    If you've got your AS12 letter that's what you normally need to set up your student account too :yes:

    Are you really worried about university or that you did not get the accommodation that you wanted? Many students don't get their number 1 accommodation and that is the reason you are asked to select multiple choices.

    if you are concerned about the course, did you apply for that course? How similar or different is the course to the one that appeals more to you?

    Can you enrol and change your course from the inside, since you may have similar academic requirements and would have already had one year in the department?

    I think that you should think about it before making a decision. As you have rightfully pointed out, you may not be given the course of your choice and then would have lost one year for nothing.

    Think before your jump.

    Good luck.
