    Have not decided, no. I've wasted like a month procrastinating.

    Cambridge are very strict with their offers. One of my friends scored 6A*'s in his A-Levels but missed his STEP offer so they didn't let him in. He was put in the summer pool but no college fished him out.

    Not harsh
    Didn't meet his offer- no place
    Perfectly reasonable

    Yes, but many other's were let in when they missed their STEP offers by a little bit but not having as good A-Levels as him. A little bit unfair at least.

    Thats the exact reason why i lost all my motivation...
    (Original post by Futuremedic2096)
    I need to get mine back
    Although I'm getting *s in biology and chemistry but physics is a bit **** as my teachers terrible this year
    (Original post by YvT1)
    Be careful though.. i am in a similar situation but u never know what can go wrong.. i will be trying for A*s so even if i don't get them i will still get very high As.. i am not risking my offer even by 0.001%.. but that's just my opinion.. also it will be pointless to go in an exam wishing i get a C and above to get my offer..
    This is why being a gap year student is so pleasant :P
