    Damn it.
    That's a year of retakes, thrown away because of illness through the exam period. For the third year running.
    I think I must have been a hornet in a past life, or someone really horrible, because I'm making up for it now!
    Don't know what to do. I guess I'll just retake.
    Again. I'm getting to be an old hat at this.
    :hugs: Congratulations to everyone who got what they wanted.
    have you been able to get an answer from your uni yet?

    If not is there anything in clearing that takes your fancy? What are your subjects/grades and what sort of thing are you after?

    Actually, A and A* awards are down 0.3% from last year! 26.6% to 26.3%!



    Afraid you wouldn't be eligible for Adjustment anyway. You have to meet and exceed your offer, so the C misses that.
    I have a burning question to ask.
    I just received an email from my insurance choice university informing me that they have received my official A-level results and that I have not met the conditions of the course I had originally applied for. However, they say they are ready to offer me a changed course offer. The problem is my Track says I have been firmly accept by my firm choice university. I have not yet collected my results but do I have anything to worry about?
    Thanks in advance

    Can somebody answer my question about ums marks?

    I got 100 ums on one side of my exam, and on the other I got 77, which amounts to 177 ums, which is an A.

    But I've been wondering whether the raw marks on that 100 ums make a difference. For example, 80% marks is 100 ums, 100% marks is 100 ums. Do those extra marks go to waste? Or might they amount to something in a2?

    If track is saying you've been firmly accepted to your firm choice then you're in at your firm choice and you have nothing to worry about

    i'm in limbo. missed my firm and now insurance by a grade and they haven't decided. rang them and they say they dont know when they will decide...
    Well that's pretty rude.

    I'd ring them back - ask for the name and job title of the person you speak to and ask them again when you can expect a decision by.

    Is there anywhere in clearing that takes your fancy? If so mention that to them and see if it forces them into a decision.

    There is NO HARM in forcing their hand - it's better to force them into rejecting you now than to let them hang on to you for days/weeks and then reject you anyway.

    They've had the results for days - the only reason to hang on to you now is because they're hedging their bets over getting someone with better grades in clearing which is downright disgraceful behaviour from a university you've shown commitment to for months.

    The know NOW whether they're likely to take you or not...they're only delaying because they're trying to play games.

      Send maths off for a remark, I would.
      I'm really tempted to do that. But my parents aren't too keen on the idea because of the fee and want me to move on. ):
