Aww thats bad news. Try not to panic what course did you apply for? I've heared Nottingham is very hard to get into as its very popular. There are plenty of over top 20 universities that will probably gladly take you.

My mate was rejected from Salford even though he had the required grade.Nottingham is also much harder to get into.

I feel really bad for you, but are any of the other places appealing? Have you been there and checked them all out thoroughly? I have a friend who lost out on her first choice uni; she went somewhere else and is now fantastically happy. Durham's gorgeous, York is sooo lovely - don't know about Birmingham and Southampton but I've heard wonderful things about them. Or if you really feel that nowhere else would do, you could always take a year out and reapply?

Hey those 4 are good uni's too! HAve you visited them yet? I'm sure there is one you like out of them! I have friends at both Southampton and Birmingham, one who had it as insurance, the other got to Soton through clearing and both love uni! I'm sure you'll do fine!

*hug* have you heard from the others yet? they're all good unis and nottingham is really hard to get into. it must be so hard for the admissions tutors to selct between almost identical candidtaes grades- wise for so few places.

thanks. York's meant to be nice, haven't heard from there tho. so gutted, lol bloody typical, 1st and second choices down the drain. Maybe i was being naive, but i thought that with predicted grades of AAAA and 7A* and 3A at gcse i'd at least stand a chance of getting into one of them? oh well. *cries*

At least you tried. I was too much of a coward to even try applying to any of the decent universities as I convinced myself I would not get in. So I took the easy way out.

Durham and York are both good universites.

Your GCSEs are fantastic! I can't understand why they would reject you... they perhaps thought you were an Oxbridge candidate and would turn them down if they gave you an offer?

I know it's not easy to accept right now but I think you really will have a brilliant time and do amazingly well wherever you go. University is what you make it, wherever you are

heya don't worry i got rejected from my 2nd choice, and most likely from my 1st as its ox. but i've looked more into my 3rd (happens to be notts) and now i've got my heart set on there which is good but the offer is quite high - AAB for geog. don't worry, your other choices are really good unis. Try to forget about the other two and focus on the good points of the others. It's **** i know, i know hoe you are feeling! But, chin up!
