    Just to clarify things up I said you were ACTING like a dickhead (emphasis on acting). Tbh I don't hate you...don't forget you actually called me a wasteman. Anyways with all those childish things aside, what were your GCSEs like? Could be a factor for me!

    Because the benefit is with the large overdraft instead...

    Hey guys my school wont let me do A2 in Biology and Economics as I didn't get a minimum of a D. However I want to do those subjects for A-level. Is it possible for me to retake year 12 in another school and start again? Will they let me? Any advice much appreciated.
    Why don't you consider doing a Foundation programme in your chosen course? I don't know it will be available for the course that you want to do, but you can check. I think there are Foundation courses at Kings College, UCL, Sussex etc.

    I think that it will be better to pursue a foundation programme in addition to your undergraduate degree. That way, you don't have to stress about A' Levels or whether you will get the required grades.

    Good luck.

    Can someone please give me some advice.

    Yesterday I got AAB which meant my firm rejected me and i got into my insurance (Firm:A*AA, Insurance:AAB)

    I got the B in Physics, which i was quite dissapointed with. I am 14 UMS off an A. I was wondering, even though I am in my insurance Uni by meeting their grades, would I still be allowed a remark? And would I also be allowed a priority remark? Or is this only for people whose grades make the difference for a place at uni or not?

    I want to get 3 As because I think it would look a lot better when applying for jobs in the future, but since I'm already at Uni, would my college/exam board see it as not important and reject me getting a remark?

    Thanks

    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.
    DMU ****ed me up too (Audiology). They claimed they sent it in the post and email in June but I received nothing. It's pathetic.

    You reapplied the following year? I am assuming that you went up for Engineering. Did you have any other non-academic attribute that was fantastic?

    Why did you change from Fitz to Homerton? Any particular reason.

    Literally no, i had good module scores in Maths and FM.
    I am going for Maths.
    It is advised that you don't reapply to same college. My mind was sidney sussex queens or homerton.
    I missed my offer this year aswell but I did some maths olympiads and came top ten in the UK which swayed it I think.

    Hi! Can someone help me? My 16 year old son got stright A's at AS in: Marine Science, French, Spanish, Biology and Chemistry. And an A* at A2 Spanish.
    His lowest % was 89% and highest 93.66% in Chemistry 281 UMS. The school say he should be working towards A* next year. Too much pressure!
    Can anyone give me an idea of the degree of possibility of getting A* at A2 on his results. (We live in Spain) I'm guessing that + 41 UMS at AS will help.
