    Thanks - my A grade was very close to the A* but it was good enough lol - got the A* elsewhere (sociology) and three other A grades so can't complain! You're brave doing maths - I run screaming from that subject as fast as possible

    Ah congrats on your A ; I'm hoping for an A* lol fingers crossed, and I'm planning on doing maths at uni but I might change to psychology if I hate maths at degree level which I worry I will ahh !

    The Junior Doctors strike and other NHS issues have had a big impact on conversion...add in that applicants for med this year were already 12% down on 5 years ago and a very different game is starting to emerge.

    Thanks - take heart from it because I was just like you and everyone else at the time - terrified I wouldn't make it - although my firm only wanted ABB so my margin for error was slightly better lol. Keep positive - it will all work out I am sure.

    That's quite odd like normally the general concessus is that unis are never in clearing for medicine haha ; well hopefully this means some people will still get into their dream course !

    Hey guys this is just a general question the subjects I do are biology psychology sociology ( eng lit - dropping)
    What career paths are there I was thinking biological sciences because I'm more into the science field but I don't want to waste time doing a course at uni that won't guarantee a job so are there any ideas?
    Thankyou

    Manchester was my insurance choice too lol. I got a reduced offer from them of BBB instead of AAB as I participated in the Manchester Access Programme through my college so spent quite a lot of time at UofM during my AS year. I know a few people who got in there too despite slightly missing their offer so don't give up hope.

    Yeh I hope I get in there with AAB lol cause they sent an email saying about how they will consider everyone who ' narrowly missed their offer ' and my school is on the list of ' crap ' schools basically meaning my application was ' flagged up ' cause of contextual data so hopefully that counts in my favour ; I'm tempted to swap my firm and insurance but can't decide ! Like idk

    Guys,
    I would appreciate if someone could help me.
    Things have gone horribly wrong this year. Would I have a chance in clearing for DDD at ANY Uni for Biochemistry?
    I done Maths, Bio and Chem at A2.

    You might get in to somewhere like Cumbria University with CDD, but I imagine DDD is pushing it. Not entirely sure though.
