    I think I'm going to make one of those sheets of information for clearing, convinced myself I've missed my insurance now
    What sorts of things will you include on said sheet?

    I take your opinion but I am not in away means an OXBRIDGE, Durham, bristol extra candidate. I am looking at Southampton, UEA, Keele, Swansea and Leicester and will put Leicester as my firm if I get an offer if this helps. I do not care how prestigious the UNI is not being insulting myself but OXBRIDGE is not everything.
    That is the point I am also trying to make. It should only be a universities in about the top 10 that not having a 4th AS might reduce your chances of getting an offer. Most of the Univs you mention should be ok with 3 AS's. Legally ALL Univ's are required to give offers on 3 A2's thereby implying 3 AS's as not all students / schools are in a position to do / provide more than 3 subjects. Basically you should not have a problem getting an offer with 3 AS's. If you were to ask the Univ they would say the same.

    Edit : And I don't agree that repeating a year is always bad. If in your repeat year your performance improves you could kind of talk about waking up to realities and pulling up your socks in your personal statement.

    What subject? Pharmacy?
    Yeah it's quite a nice uni ^-^ It's got a good rep so fingers crossed I get AAB!

    I know 2 people who firmed for DMU and Hudds for Pharmacy!
    I reckon Hudds especially could be leniant - they should be going into clearing I've heard, so you've got a real good chance of getting in even if you haven't got the grades.
    If not, there is still a uni that wants like BBB or 280 points or something. Can't remember which one, but you can always go there if the worst ever comes (and i bet you will be finee!!)

    I'm hoping for AAB and I didn't even sit half my exams due to being ill so I don't even know if I'm going to be granted a grade or anything x
    Yes pharmacy oooh that's made me feel a bit more at ease haha but when a uni is in clearing don't they ask for the same requirments? or are they more lenient?

    I see what you did there! Haha Same! How did you find the mechanics paper? I hated it
    , it was a lot trickier than normal which made marks easy to drop. I'm annoyed a lot of the topics I liked on the course didn't come up . Did you also do Electrons, Waves, and Photons?

    Contact details for universities which look promising - just had a look on UCAS and for my course it looks like York and Royal Holloway might be worth a try, for example.
    Key points from my PS to convince unis to take me
    My UCAS ID because I can never remember it!
    My grades from GCSE and AS including module scores

    and I'll also buy a copy of the Telegraph I guess. I feel a bit calmer now I have a plan :lol:

    With regards to the school opening times, I can't collect any A2 results until 10am so I don't get why other people are complaining about getting them at 8/9...

    Oh I know. I do ICT and Geography with CCEA and i'm really worried about my ICT, the coursework took me ages and I feel as though I have messed it up. Geography not so much but I do keep thinking about my writing.

    It is irritating that I have to travel the whole way into school just to collect one result. There is no benefit of going to school at all.

    Waiting on results BCC which isn't so bad. Worried about English Language as its the Welsh board and they're really harsh at marking, anyone else worried about this particular subject? Worried about this more than anything else

    Thanks
