    Have you contacted your firm/insurance and had a look at different universities through clearing?
    Imperial has already rejected me, but Bristol is taking its sweet time to reject me.

    First thing is you need to KNOW a lot about the subject. You need to spend a lot of your time reading UK and US news, and books about politics. Everyday I read Politico, Wash Post, New York Times. You have to really be interested in it.

    As for the exam itself - write 4 points instead of 3 on the 15 markers. 45 markers, write atleast 3 sides, present both sides of the argument, and make sure to use reent example from UK and US politics.

    N/A - didn't apply last year as I got CEEE, so I am taking a gap year

    future plans
    retake all/most A2 written exams (+ music GCSE and potentially AS/A2 maths), and apply to study veterinary medicine, with either veterinary nursing or bioveterinary science as a back up, and go from there

    I wanted AAB, but I knew that wasn't going to happen. At the end of the day I'm very pleased to have BCC as I now have somewhere to go from. not too happy about the 6DR04 grade boundaries though

    I'm so surprised I got in!!! I needed 280 points to get into ARU, and got 220 with my results. I guess they liked me at my interview. Nevertheless, I'm ecstatic that I got in!!!!

    I'm just really relieved. I was up half the night worrying about Warwick and I'm so so happy it all turned out well. I really wasn't expecting the result I got in maths so it just made everything a lot better, and I was worried I would miss my offer because of a B in Biology. Gosh, I'm just so glad it's over.
