    I'm not sure mate, I just seen PQ say that medicine was in clearing at St. George's
    It must be the one that's in the Caribbean

    Hey! Apologies for intruding on your conversation however, I have a question. If I get rejected by newcastle for medicine, is it possible to get into St. George's through clearing? (As they have medicine in clearing) OR are you only allowed to try and enter 1 medical school per annual intake? For example, if I get A*AB (Chem, geography and biology) and Newcastle reject me, is there a possibility St. George's can still accept me? Is it purely the universities choice?

    If you end up in clearing then you can enquire for any course. It's likely SGUL will be after people who failed to get any offers for med but still aced their exams but only they know what they're looking for.

    Interesting. I tried my luck with phoning up Med Schools on results day a few years ago (I had no offers but got the grades) but I was told very quickly where to go. Hopefully this will help those in a similar position.

    I think it is more likely that St georges will be accepting people who met the AAA requirements but who do not have any offers for medicine. I cannot say at this point but that is usually the case when medicine ends up in clearing (happened a few years back - cannot remember the med school mind) because they will have many candidate with no offers and achieved AAA or above, and hence they are more likely to chose those people over AAB or A*AB.

    My firm is Liverpool (ABB)and insurance is Lincoln (BBB) for LLB Law at both.

    Though my requirements are quite low I would be so gutted to miss out on Liverpool, even if all my exams went well.

    No idea why I even chose Lincoln, visited it and found it quite nice. Should have chosen Warwick but had a bad experience when I visited it and couldn't see my self studying in such a dull environment.

    Ah cheers Natalie, that makes sense. Hopefully I don't find myself in that predicament

    Sorry if this has been asked before but do edexcel release their excel ums converter document at the same time as releasing the grade boundaries?
