    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I didn't think you could add clearing choices until UCAS comes back online around 5pm?
    You can't physically add the choice, I don't think, but most people call up the uni's and secure a place by giving all their details and persuading uni's to accept them, so that when you do add them at 5 it all goes through very quickly.

    Exactly! The questions were not as straightforward as usual :broken: Yes I did! I had another major exam that day so I didn't prepare for it an awful lot but I found the exam not as bad as the first one :K:
    I don't mind that, but I just wished we had more time; a mark a minute doesn't seem enough! I sat Unit 2 in Jan so didn't see what this one was like, was it better or worse?

    ahh nerve wracking times! I'm sure at least one will take you
    would you mind going to your insurance?
    I knowwww, fingers crossed! I wouldn't mind tbh, I just want to get into uni, haha. Are your choices both the same requirements?

    I know right! I actually didn't have time to finish the mechanics paper or the second one, and I knew how to do some of the questions left :/ But generally I am really slow in exams
    I think the one in June was a bit more tricky but not by much, but I am sure the grade boundaries will balance that up
    Do you know what you got in it?

    Its weird, I was able to those mechanics papers at home in half an hour but in the exam time was tight and I had to dash at the end!
    Of course, I received my result in March

    You don't add clearing choices and hope one of them will accept you. You need to speak to the univs that are in clearing. If one of them agrees to accept you, then you put that as your clearing choice after 5 PM. You can put only one choice. UCAS forwards that to the Uni who send back a confirmation.
