    Does anyone know if Birmingham is one of the unis that send a text our results day morning saying you are in or not? I've heard a couple of unis do this

    I applied last year too and they didn't implement that policy- but it would be brilliant if they did
    They send you a good luck email for results which I found pretty daunting

    I know right! The scientific jargon actually put everything in perspective and I actually felt a lot calmer...im still worried, but calm worried
    In Shaa Allah kheyr I will be studying Policy, Politics and Economics (PPE)
    HBU? WHAT did you apply for
    I feel the exact same like I just wanna know now, the wait is wayyy too long. When do sixth forms find out, is it the day before? & Ahhhh nice, I will be hopefully studying History and Political Science joint honours

    I'm so impatient I just have to know asap hahah wish we found out earlier. We can see on track if we've got in on results morning right?
    & No way, will we?! I was looking to do History and Theology aswell before we applied hahaa crazy.

    I haven't had a reading list because I originally applied for English so my AVD was for that but then I changed my course so I haven't had any information about History and Political Science except what somebody posted about which books to buy on TSR. You?

    Yhh, track opens at 8
    My school gives out results at 8, so I'm prob gna leave the house 7.45/ 7.50 and check if track has open just a bit before... Sometimes it does like 5mins early
    But Il have track on my phone just in case on the way to school
    Omd I'm quite impatient and I was stressing like a craazzaay woman, buy then I came across a video called 'How to make stress your friend' by TedTalks and dude I gta say it was enlightening and I actually felt a looot calmer
    Me too! Last yr I applied for English lit and History at uob but I'm so glad I Narrowly missed my offer because English is just not me (not degree level anyway)
    I haven't heard nothing from my course... Should be worried? Last yr with English and history they didn't give me a reading list either...i did go to this yrs AVD and nothing was given of that sort..hm?
    What did they say about politics?

    Did you take a gap year?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Not really... I didn't take the A level examinations. I'm a Singaporean student and was doing my diploma in Business when I applied to UoB. It was my final semester so I applied to the university with my (then) existing grades and got a conditional offer. I received the unconditional offer only after I completed the final semester. x

    Wow congratulations! That is some achievement! Thanks for saying that it is reassuring I mean birmingham has everything; beautiful campus, great city, nightlife, football etc and is a really well respected school of law.

    Do you intend to practice as a lawyer once you've done your degree? If so, in the city or high street firms?
    Yes! Birmingham is a beautiful city, I absolutely can't wait for uni to start!

    Yes, I intend to take the bar exams after graduating. Probably in the city, I prefer working in smaller firms. What about you? Any plans? x

    I know this is incredibly early since A-level results day is next week (and the vast majority of applicants sat the A-levels) - but has any unconditional offer holders already received their course timetable, more information about their course? Just wondering when we will get them as uni is fast approaching and so much will be going on over the next few weeks... Don't want to forget anything or miss out on something! xD

    ^ Hi there, was this post directed to me? If so, I'm sorry but I can't relate as I met my offer and am registered as a student now :-/ ... I'd be happy to help you out, though!

    If you know you have missed your offer, you should also let the university know as soon as possible so that they can put you in a sort of waiting list and look again at your application to make a proper decision. Don't wait until August 14th to contact them - it will be a very busy period. Since it's a bit too late now and we are just one week away from the A-level results day, you may not have an immediate answer. The university might still accept you provided that there are vacant places for your course (you can look your course up here: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/undergra...t/home-eu.aspx). I'm not promising anything, but I think you have good chances of getting in since you are just 3% off the offer grade!


    Hope that helps.

    Did anyone do the A2B scheme? If so what score did you get in the essay, and do you think that if you did a good enough essay but narrowly missed the entry requirements, they would still accept you? I don't think I'm gonna get ABB for law, and I don't know why, it's just a feeling. I desperately wanna go to Birmingham
