    where is yours for? mines for Leeds.

    I really don't know what i'm going to do
    would have been simpler if they'd have just rejected me or if i'd missed my offer by alot!

    literally can't believe that one mark is going to determine so much
    mine's Birmingham to study mathematics, what about you? what did you get overall?

    Universities may not speak to you if you don't have a clearing number I'm afraid. You can try though, but it may be pointless.

    Why don't you take up the offer for the foundation year?
    I'll be turning 20 next year. Don't want to feel like the oldest

    Hey !
    congratulations on getting an offer from oxford! What will you be studying ?
    I wanted to ask you if you put into your personal statement that you got the B by only missing 1 UMS ? Because I'm in the same situation now and I'm not quite sure if I should mention it ...
    Philosophy and Theology And I got an A by one UMS! If you missed out by 1 UMS though you should definitely get a remark - it should come through in time for applications. And don't mention your results in the Personal Statment - your referee can do that (or mention any really good marks) in his reference.

    Congratulations, your place at University of Glasgow for Psychology has been confirmed. The university or college should now send you more information.

    Well, I was predicted AAB with ABB from AS, absolutely bombed my exams and ended up with BBC, so I missed my firm which was at Sussex. Luckily, I phoned up Glasgow and they still took me despite them asking for ABB, I feel so blessed, haha.

    Eventual grades were;
    Psychology - B
    Sociology - B
    History - C
    Law (AS) - E
    Philosophy (AS) - D

    Just goes to show it's not all about grades and that stuff, must have been my outstanding personal statement that swayed it for me. *sarcasm*

    Not going to lie I am seriously depressed with my results...

    Biology - A
    Chemistry - B
    Physics - B
    History - B

    I also got 10 A*s at GCSE

    I have been predicted AAA

    Do you think I have a chance at going to Imperial, UCL, Oxford or Cambridge to do medicine? Or have my chances been ruined by my bad AS results??

    Hey there! I'd seriously drop Cambridge as they look at AS UMS from your most relevant three (bio, chem, physics) and they tend to look for 90%+. I'd also reconsider applying for all three of the remaining and choose one, or at the very very most two. This is because all three require the BMAT which you sit after applying and so it's quite a risk to your application.

    If I were to pick 1, I'd choose Imperial because they don't discriminate on AS results. Oxford don't really have a policy on it, but we can assume they wouldn't let in people likely to miss their A*AA offer. UCL certainly do discriminate on AS results and while your are good and you still have a chance at UCL, I think in terms of your medicine application they'd disadvantage you more than Imperial.

    I'm happy to help with any other queries about applying to medicine via inbox.
