    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.

    Out of curiosity, did you end up doing medicine?

    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.

    Whats done is done now and nothing can be changed, you tried your hardest and whatever happens you know deep down you did everything you can.

    I will say this... I was in your position last year, I held a firm offer from Cardiff for medicine but absolutely messed up f324 chemistry, I 100% thought I wasnt going to make my offer, I had clearing numbers in my phone and knew what other courses I would apply for etc. But on results day I got my grades and got my firm offer, one exam doesnt dictate everything and providing you worked hard you can pull it through. Stay strong nothing is final until you hear from the uni!

    SCLY4 is scarying me

    SCLY3 went okay but I know for 4 I messed up big time with the state crime 21 marker
    Pretty sure I will get max 5 marks and if I'm lucky 10 marks.
    Argh
