    It's the small handful of people who are still in the dark for a few days after results day that I feel most sorry for - that wait must be torture.

    1/8 of applicants won't have a clear decision on results day.


    This is explained in the faq of the first post in this thread iirr.

    Hahaha very true! I'm into all of the sports tbh, it'll definitely ease the road to results day
    I do enjoy it for the sports don't get me wrong ; I'm such a competing person so I get really hyped up when there's Brits

    My insurance uni ( Manchester ) has emailed me saying that they 'might ' have to keep me waiting for a few days if I were to ' narrowly ' miss my offer so I'm a bit scared aahh

    Don't forget that a significant chunk of the 7/8 have a definite answer that they're in clearing.

    Results day is stressful for everyone. For a lot of people that stress will continue for days or even weeks or months as they figure out the best way forward.

    Even people who get in end up with a lot feeling very deflated and down after an anticlimax of a results day.

    I don't think you should advertise that, especially with your RL name on your profile. Better to be safe than sorry.

    This does seriously piss me off though. It's potentially harmful behaviour for the sole benefit of the university.

    The best advice is ALWAYS to call their bluff and say you don't want to wait and would prefer a rejection to being kept in limbo. If they reject you then that's what they were planning on doing after a few days. If there's a decent chance they'll take you after a wait then forcing their hand will get them to do that earlier. If they want you they KNOW that and will accept you rather than lose you.

    Yeah I know the stress - went through it all in 2014. Luckily my decisions were clear cut and I knew I was in before getting my actual grades. But clearly remember some near misses that year (and again for the same uni last year) who had a long wait, poor souls.

    Check the clearing pages on each university website. If they aren't specific ring up if you're within 2-3 grades of their normal entry grades (remember though that the further you are away from the standard entry grades the slimmer your chances ).

    Yh and I emailed them and then they were like yh we can just release you if that's what you want but I would rather wait and hope someone does accept me cause I think I'd rather have a gap year and reapply then go to some random uni

    Sure hope this doesn't happen to you. Manchester didn't keep my friend hanging around when she missed her grades so hopefully it will be the same for you too. Anyway as it's your insurance it may be all speculation anyway - fingers crossed!

    Anyone know where I can get the mock mark schemes for my subjects:

    AQA - Psychology PSYA3/4
    AQA - History HIS3M
    OCR - Biology F214/5

    I know it sounds lazy but it's dawned on me that results is two weeks away. Need to go over this to calm my nerves.

    There isn't one for psychology ; there's too much subjectivity ; it's only a few weeks to go now
