    no I actually applied to Oxford for a foundation year programme which was launched this year
    I got the offer from oxford but it wasnt through UCAS
    Oxford told me to ring them with my grades and the grades they asked me for are pretty similar to what my firm wanted.. all my offers were conditional both on and Off UCAS
    I dont even want to go to my firm, I was meant to take a gap year but the foundation year opportunity came

    this is why i really need good grades so I can take up my Oxford offer

    So that being said, does your insurance AUTOMATICALLY reject you if you got into your firm choice university?? or does this mean i got bad grades?
    I didnt know Oxford did a foundation year degree, what course did you apply for?

    Has anyone here not declared their 4th AS Level on their UCAS form and got away with it?
    I got AAB in my AS Levels which I AM SOO GASSED for, but unfortunately I got an E in my 4th one - is it worth declaring?

    Physics A
    this is actually really surprising for me because phy is supposed to be my best subject, and tbh i performed very well in u5 and u6, but got 80% for u4
    Hi, well done on your results! I was just wondering if you could share some key things that you did in order to achieve your a* in maths? Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!

    make sure you summon all your attention on c3 and c4, just ignore other units. I was lucky enough that I only needed to score a minimum of 30% on my s1 to get an a*. Make sure you dont make any mistakes and practice spotting errors (i recommend playing minesweeper)

    I dont think you will get away with it.
    Firstly your school checks all your **** and matches it with statement of results before being approved and sent off.
    Then when you get into a uni they will check your certificates and since certifcates share results on the same board if that subject has the same bord as any of the other ones they will see you didnt declare it have thenpower to rescind your place.
    Basically, don't do it.

    I don't think you have to declare it if it's a fail? Is an E a fail?

    Hey guys need some advice
    Is there a kind of helpline I can ring for this sort of stuff?
    Posted here a couple of days ago , what a crazy couple of days. Missed my Physiotherapy grades, phoned around everywhere managed to get on the phone to someone from Worcester who wanted further information. Anyway she got back to me yesterday and invited me to come down on Monday for an interview! I'm supposed to be going on holiday so I'll have to change my flight to a later one, I also live in Wales and have a full time job, and also the Physiotherapy course in Worcester isn't funded by the NHS which my firm and insurance choice was. So this means in the space of 3 weeks if I get in I'll have to hand in my notice in work late and ask to finish sooner than a month, cancel my NHS funding and sort out a student loan and money as I now will be paying for everything, and find somewhere to live and move from Wales (I would have been living at home with my firm)... And all this whilst working full time. It's all a bit overwhelming and I know I'm so lucky to be asked for an interview but I'm wondering whether if I explained all this to the tutors they would let me start late or something , it's all a bit of a shock and whilst it's such a competitive course and I realise how lucky I am I don't want to make a snap decision which results in me living somewhere for 3 years I've never even seen

    Universities probably won't let you start late, I d suggest getting a student bank account sorted so that you re prepared incase your funding is late.
