    I've asked them before if it was possible and they have said it's highly unlikely to switch between departments and would require me to be reinterviewed at the very least. So I might as well just reapply since I've got my gap year sorted anyway. Plus, I do want another crack at Cambridge after being rejected after interview. :sad:
    They are different departments??
    And ahh well. That makes sense.

    Yeah, there's actually very little Chemistry in Chemical Engineering. Chemistry is in the Natural Science department whereas Chemical Engineering is in the Engineering department.

    I thought I read somewhere that Universities may email you before the 18th to inform you if you have been successful or not. Can anybody confirm this or is the 18th the first time you can get your results?

    The 18th is the earliest you can get your results, as far as I know. Some students will know whether they've got in earlier, but that'll be because they sat the IB or another qualification, with an earlier results day. Universities do have access to our results from Sunday 14th August but they're not allowed to communicate anything before results day.

    What is this sociology ? A lot of people are saying sociology was hard this year so the boundaries should reflect this meaning you'll probably end up doing better than you anticipate 😎😎

    Not being nervous is good I reckon - enough time for that as you get closer to the day! The official title of my degree is Psychology and Speech Pathology - basically a double honours degree of psychology and speech and language therapy - what a mixture eh???
    (Original post by NeverLucky)
    Thanks so much! Is it bad that I don't really feel nervous at all? Tho, that might just be cos I'm on holiday more than anything woo good luck in your 3rd year at uni!! What are you studying?

    Quick question: Should we check Track before we actually get our results? Because I wanted to get my grades first and then look at Track, but people recommend going online first... however what if it hasn't updated or it crashes or I can't get on? :/

    Do what is right for you really. I'll be checking track first but it isn't important which way round you do it.

    It can happen but always by mistake and risks a university losing early access to exam results in future years.

    The contract universities sign to get the results early states that they aren't allowed to reveal results or and decisions based on those results until 8am on the 18th (and even then they aren't allowed to speak to applicants who haven't yet received their results from their school/college).

    I know that AQA grade boundaries are released on the 17th, but is the UMS converter also functional for the June 2016 series from that day, or do we still wait until the 18th?
