    Yes they do, however if you mentioned your circumstances within the school reference on UCAS then it should lessen the situation. Did you mention the circumstances on the Cambridge SAQ and LSE's additional questionnaire?
    Actually, I'm doing AS now! I'm an international student n I did my GCSEs in 1 yr. My 'adorable' English teacher didnt allow me to do the papers! She also said that I could not get even a C in Lower paper while I could actually got an A in Higher paper. She also said that with international students, IELTS is much more important I'll take the IELTS anw but I'm a bit scared bcoz of my very ODD GCSEs! What should I do now? :-s

    when did you get this questionnaire? was it by email?
    Did everyone get it? I've applied for economics and didn't receive anything!

    Nope, for some reason they increased the offer from A*AAB-AAAB to A*AAA.
    I can't believe this, they told me an email that it would be A*AAB at most, do you think they'd accept A*A*AB?

    I don't know, is that your prediction, or what you would expect to get? I think it is due to me taking further maths that they want a fourth A.

    What are your A Level subjects? You should know there are some subjects which aren't too well regarded by universities. I don't think IELTS matters at all as long you have GCSE English to at least a B. Right now focus on getting really good UMS at AS Level, and maybe do some more GCSEs at the same time if you think you'll be able to get A*s.

    I'm doing Double Maths, Econ and Socio. Actually I'm thinking of doing some more GCSEs but I also have to find the best way to persuade my college to enter me to those exams. Soooo sad!!! (

    Hi,
    my qualifications are:
    GCSE: 2A*s (Maths & Eng Lit), 5As and 3 Bs
    AS: B (Psychology)
    A2: AAA (Maths, Economics, Politics), with a B in General Studies which apparently no-one cares about. Also, my Maths module grades are AAAAAA.

    I've applied:
    Nottingham L100
    Bath L101
    Warwick L100
    York L100
    Bristol L100

    and i sent my application off on the 7th October, and i've got no replies so far! I've also mentioned in my personal statement that im retaking my C3 exam to try and get an A* in Maths so they could give me a conditional offer? Im so worried! I think I f****d up my GCSEs! Even last year i applied for 5 Uni's and got rejected from all of them (my school predicted me ABCC, the *******s), so was forced to take a gap year, and now its like im not going to get any again! Anyone got any opinions about whether i should change to some 'lesser' universities? Or maybe someone with admissions expertise!?

    AHHH!

    its probably not for everyone... or they do it for a number of people at a time instead of everyone... got a request by email then rang up admissions to get some clarification on what they actually wanted me to send.

    I take further maths too, but i think i will struggle to get an A in history, i just don't understand why they haven't even updated there website to include the offers they are giving.
