    I am, hopefully Which unis are you going to apply to?
    Oh cool! :five:Well I won't know for definite until I get my results, but I am considering quite a few! The ones which require AAB which I like are UCL, KCL and UEA. The unis which require ABB that I like are Manchester and Medway School of Pharmacy in Greenwich
    How about you?

    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.
    Ah, OK. Now I can understand why people are so worried about not getting their results at the crack of dawn.

    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.
    Good luck with the Geography AS. I remember you from the Geography section haha.

    2 a's you might be OK but only 1 and you'll probably need to keep your fingers crossed for quite a few others on the course doing similar

    I was under the impression it was almost exclusively Oxbridge that start late.
    Exeter changed from 1 Oct to 23 Sept after I'd applied and I'm pretty sure there was somewhere else I applied to, other than Cambridge, which also started in October but I can't remember where.

    whats ur firm?
    I think it varies any time between early sept and early oct with most in mid/late sept
    My firm is Cambridge
