    Do you think if I get my results next week and haven't heard from Durham by then (next Thursday) telling them could possibly make them give me an offer?
    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking about doing too.

    I get the feeling that doing that will just piss them off. I mean, it's not like they don't know that they haven't replied yet. Or, when I called another university after recieving my offer by post why it took a month to be updated on UCAS, they said UCAS wasn't up to (x date) yet. So maybe that explains the wait.

    But say for example I get very good results in March, and they were about to reject me, they might have second thoughts about that then.

    I'm wondering this aswell as my AS results arn't the best but I really put the work in for these january modules + a ton of retakes so hopefully I will have brought them up to a better standard.
    Suprised they have not rejected me yet... doubt I will survive this week though

    Do you reckon its worth mentioning olympiad scores and UMS marks if you were rejected as a reason to possbly reconsider? One of my friends was rejected for biology yet his UMS were stupidly high and he had a silver award in the bio olympiad, yet they wouldn't have known his UMS and the olympiad was done this year.

    To be honest if they've kept you waiting this long it's almost definitely not about grades any more - everyone's predicted AAA+ so it's probably more about your personal statement, etc.

    What are your UMS marks if you don't mind me asking? Mine are:
    C1:100
    C2:100
    M1:93
    S1:90
    FP1:89
    M2:89

    I think if you email your jan marks and you did good and your AS weren't great then they probably would reconsider you if they were to reject you.

    I'd disagree. With Maths especially Durham care a lot about UMS, and so if you do very well in your January modules then there's no harm in letting them know, it won't damage your chances but it may well get you an offer.

    They do, but I'm not sure they could use information which not all candidates have provided.

    If they liked the person but weren't sure their grades were good enough, they'd be more likely to give them a high offer - if they meet it, then they are good enough, if not, then they don't get in.

    I'm applying for Physics and i got ABBBB at AS..... ( A for maths) predicted AAAB but hoping for A*AAB or maybe A*AAA

    My maths UMS were

    C1 - 84 -retook hoping for 100
    C2- 89
    S1 -97 (couldn't take mechanics due to time table issues so self studied so wouldn't struggle at uni, have mentioned in PS)

    Didn't take further but hugely regret it now hoping for high UMS in my C3/Phys unit 4 and bio unit 4 though as the exams went really well.

    I take it you've applied for maths?
