    They're my firm. And awh, that's too bad. But at least Nottingham's an awesome uni!
    Then I would assume you're in And thanks, it'll take a while but I'm sure I'll like Nottingham as like you say its a great university and in the top 10 for Maths too

    It's my insurance.
    Could be highly likely I'm going there though. My course seems to be in clearing ~
    What subject? Mines pharmacy
    A word of warning if Keele if your insurance and you get in then you do not get on campus accommodation, you have to find your own living arrangements either with privately owned halls or through a private landlord

    Don't worry about them too much. At the time, they seem like a huge deal, but as long as you do well at English language and maths that's all that /really/ matters. I did exceedingly averagely at GCSE (2A*, 2A, 5B, 1C) and I got five university offers.

    They emailed me saying they 95% can get insurance candidates onto campus. It's just clearing ones who may struggle.
    I have friends there who went there via insurance, they all got accommodation.

    If you're not aiming for medicine or Oxbridge, you don't have to worry about GCSEs as long as they're not terrible.

    UCAS DDoS allowing, I'm going to check at 08:00, get the tears out, then go and pick up my certificates.

    They are great, I live in a small village now, so it'll just be like transplanting myself if I do end up at Keele.

    Have you applied to Keele? If so, (and even if you havnt) what course?

    Biomedical Science for me, it seems it's also in clearing which gives me a small piece of hope.

    Clearly Keele made a typo on the website then! They just said 'insurance' choices...

    I'm sorry I was just asking a simple question but if not you could've just responded in a much polite manner. Sorry if I interrupted anything
