    You will get an email from kings saying something on your kings portal has changed so log on and see, UCAS will update a few hours later (in my experience)

    Hey, thanks for getting back to me. Yeahh i think i can atleast get AAB at the end of the year, but my teachers are being really harsh, so i may need to go through clearing btw do you have any sort of idea as to how competitive physics is at kings, i remeber it was in clearing last year.
    Also im resitting some AS modules, do you think they would mind that ? And i got a U in futher maths last year too, do you think that would be a problem??

    ps. Sorry for all the questions im soo curious :/
    I wouldn't be able to comment on Physics I'm afraid, though I suspect as with any course to KCL it would be competitive. As for resitting AS modules, I would like to imagine they wouldn't mind, providing at the end of it you reach whatever they offer you, but again I'm sorry to say I can't be sure. Finally, depends on the U. If you dropped that at AS level, and are predicted AAB for the other 3 then it shouldn't matter in theory, as the offer is simply based on whatever your current 3 A2 subjects are. However due to the fact Physics and Maths go hand in hand they may take it into account.

    Thank you for your reply.
    I don't have another degree behind me, no; I have been working since I left secondary school.
    We are only three weeks into the course so far so I don't have any grades as yet. I am aiming for 45 distinctions but only time will tell. The course covers biology, chemistry and maths so it fits well with King's requirements.

    Thanks again.
    Ah in which case I would definitely still use your experience with working to your advantage. Whatever it is you've worked as, explaining what you've learned over that course of time and how those skills would apply/benefit you on any future course is what universities like to see. It's all good and well for someone to apply with masses of experience, but if they can't say what they've learned from it it doesn't count for much. I would really emphasise that in any application and use it to your advantage.

    And I agree! The subjects go hand in hand and I do wish you luck in going for the 45

    For everyone else, again feel free to shoot questions my way, sorry I've been a bit awol in the past few days from the thread. Congrats to all with offers :yy:

    Lol, is kings your first choice? And what are your predcitions if you dont mind me asking
    Is king's my first choice? Yes and no. I am retaking year 13 so of those that I stand a realistic chance of getting King's is most definitely my first choice. However I will be applying to Manchester which if I was graced with an offer would be my first choice but I do not hold out much hope for actually receiving an offer.

    My Predictions?
    My grades from last year are ABB a*- Maths, Physics, Chemistry at A level and EPQ Respectively.
    Now Changed college my predictions for this year are in the range of A*AAB-A*A*A* B (most likely outcome A*A*AB) with the new additional subject being Further Maths, total a level resit in Physics and a single paper resit in Maths as I got the notational a* in C3 but did really bad in C4.

    Guessing What else you might ask:
    GCSE Grades: 4xA* 5xA 1xB plus a B in a short course and Level 2 thinking and reasoning with distinction and level 2 award in creative arts.
    AS Grdae B in History.
    Reason for redoing- extenuating circumstances like by the bucket load.

    I had to take half a gap year in year 12 and so redid year 12 and doing my A2's (all at first sitting) due to be ill, do have evidence of this. Should I ask my reference to mention this? Am I at a disadvantage?
