    The bartering doesn't really happen, because they get your results and decide before you even see yours. Hence why on results day people tend to log into UCAS to see if their place has been confirmed or not.

    The case for most, if not all, colleges is that if you miss out on your offer (which even if you got A*s in everything else is still missing out) you need to photocopy your module results to them, but largely I think it's safe to say you'd still get in with an A* elsewhere
    OOh thanks there's hope. I did better in maths than psychology (missed out A* by 5 UMS in psych) which is strange so i guess i should keep trying for the A* in both.

    Hey - does your freshers pack have anything special for engineering?

    I got one for my college, but there isn't really much about engineering (the subject I have an offer for) in mine, just a mention about some problems that I presume we receive after results.
    It's particularly for engineers - it has preparatory problems for engineers to work through during summer and also info on industrial placements (including email details on the guy responsible for them at Cambridge) and also info and preparation for the mindstorms week at the beginning of the first year.

    Ta! Would rep you but I already repped your post above Should just reiterate though, DO keep posting in the other thread because it's nice to have lots of people available, just maybe less focused on Newnham jokes and more on applicant jokes :p:

    I will visit the 2012 thread frequently. I just wish there were some engineering applicants for 2012 there!
