    Met my conditions but Track hasn't updated it yet

    That's the last step, just to see the place officially confirmed
    Good for you. Congratulations Imperial, isn't it?

    I was predicted BAAB.... I actually got CBBB :/ I already have an unconditional for The University of Edinburgh but I'm still really disappointed to have dropped grades from my prelims >.<
    At least you still have the unconditional :yep:
    Don't worry about those grades, they're still really good

    You're already off to uni, so what that means is your school grades no longer matter. I guarantee you won't care in the slightest in a couple of years!

    I've looked at strathclyde and glasgow's business and engineering and minimum entry requirements are all either AABBB or AAABB.. It's really getting me down
    Glasgow's Engineering website:

    "Applicants who achieve less than AAAB or AABBB in S5 but have achieved at least ABBB (including Maths) MAY receive an offer based on S6 results. A decision will be made in March 2015 once all applications have been reviewed."

    There is still a good chance you could get an offer, but it would be conditional on your results in S6. Remember there will be plenty of other universities that would most definitely consider you with those grades.

    Will I have to phone the school for investigation results? I'm a bit reluctant to - perhaps I could just wait till I get to university since they should have a record of them.

    Is AAACC equivalent to AAAB? The uni is asking for AAAB in one sitting if you did 4 subjects, but I did 5 and got AAACC in one sitting is it the same?

    thanks!! Though Ive just logged onto UCAS and there has been no change in the application like it still stays my firm is UCL and insurance is St Andrews and there have been no updates since march (when i received offers from them) I assume UCL haven't received my results yet???
    Sorry I was away for a bit - if you haven't received a UF/Accepted or Denied in UCAS, then you should ring the uni in question and speak to them directly!

    It doesn't matter how many subjects you do, you still need one B (or higher) unfortunately. However, if you talk to them, they might still be willing to accept you :yes:. Check what it says on your Track, or phone them

    Yeah, unfortunately phoning (or going down in person) is the only way to find out, haha!
    Unis won't have your investigation results. :no: They don't get sent everything!

    It depends. Generally, no. You'd have to get at least AAABC to qualify for AAAB, but some universities will still accept AAACC. The only way to find out for sure is if you get in touch with that uni themselves!

    No one gives a **** about marks It's your choice if you want to find out though and you would need to contact the school.

    Ah ok. I mean I can phone up I did it last year but its just er... awkward.

    You're at Edinburgh, right? Is it just the grades they will have a record of?

    My offer was unconditional but I haven't received a welcome pack yet and I'm not sure if I should have. I think I'll get in touch with them anyway just to make sure I've not missed anything.

    Unfortunately, universities will still look at them, especially for medicine. :sadnod:

    Think they might be sending out welcome packs in the next week or so (they won't send them out until after results day! Maybe even until after A-level results day on the 14th), but no harm at all in e-mailing! Yeah, I'm at Edinburgh (da coolest uni in Scotland :cool:)

    AH Maths

    A2 - 66
    B - 54
    C - 43
    D - 37

    Very low, although not entirely surprising.
