    I'm hoping to get into university to study Environmental Sciences this september and both my firm and insurance have given me offers of BBB (I know, i'm an idiot) but after my exams, I think i'll be getting BBC in biology, geology and geography.

    I really struggle with timing and the geography final exam was a bloody report - i was screwed no matter how much revision i did. Needless to say i knowhere near finished.

    In my GCSEs I got 4 A*s and 6 As, do you think this makes a difference? Should i email the universities and tell them i'm worried because i didn't finish my exam? Seriously worried here!

    There's no reason not to e-mail them and ask, you would receive official clarification from the universities instead of people's opinions on TSR.

    I don't imagine that the universities would really be able to give you any comfort until you get your results...

    You might jsut be better off sticking it out, enjoying your summer and not worrying too much, and then when you do get your grades, tackle it then.

    Some universities will accept grades below the offers (ie. you got BBC for a BBB offer) anyway, so that could well happen for you - if they don't, it's worht giving the uni's a ring on results day (lines will be busy so you'll have to be persistent) and preparing a mini speech on why they should take you on despite your grades. If you sound passionate enough they may just take you on anyway...

    Finally, if it al goes tits up, theres always clearing or the option of taking a gap year and resiting exams.
