    Hey everyone,

    I went into my exams with a high B in economics, the eco exams went well, but it turns out i dropped major marks and missed my firm place (cardiff) by 1(!) UMS mark. I've sent both economics papers back for a priority remark and the school posted them on the 19th. Cadiff said they have to accept me if I get a mark up before te 31st of august, What are my chances?

    i'm goin mad here, having to take a year out to make up one mark just seems like something i dont want to have to do! Thanks in advance,

    That's sometime in September. I think it's the 16th.
