    I personally don't even have an insurance XD
    It's not that I look down on other universities, but after all that hard work and years of practising I kind of don't want to go anywhere else other than Oxford. People said I was crazy I firmed an A*A*A offer without an insurance, but hey. It motivated me to revise

    You could call them up and ask to be released ONLY if you are sure you don't want to go there.
    Just look up possibilities for clearing?

    I signed up to that recent UCAS clearing which was emailed to me but I'll have to cancel insurance before I'm eligible to use it.

    Do you think there's a possibility they may refuse to scrap my application for the purpose of shortages on students? As silly as it may sound aha

    There is a possibility, yes and I know of someone last year who wasn't released. It is rare, however.

    I don't know - I was told about it in a UCAS meeting thing a few weeks ago and they refused to say.*

    I don't think they can make them go to that Uni as such, but it means they can't enter clearing either from what I understand.

    Yeah, it seems more spiteful than anything else. Unless they can make you still pay the £9k a year dispite not going?

    I'd like to know how teachers react when getting the students results like if they ***** about that kid they knew was gonna fail ect ; would be interesting to see what goes on
    I've always wondered that too, do they go to the other teacher like, "Look at this, Bill! Tom got an E! Where's that fiver we bet on?!"

    yhhhhh trust me I bet teachers have lots of banter surrounding results especially when its some gcse grade which really doesn't matter, and yh i wanna go into teaching and i will try and place some bets hahahahah . I do think sometimes teachers are a bit clueless as to what results their students are actually going to get cause you can't really tell who revises outside of lessons ect so i bet they get quite a few surprise grades appearing and realise they judged a student wrong
