    HELP! I replied to my offers, but want to change my insurance!
    However, my deadline for this (14 days after I have received my AS9 letter) would be Monday 2nd May, and UCAS customer services are closed tomorrow and Monday..

    Would I be able to ring them on Tuesday and still change my insurance choice?

    So stressed!!
    You'll have to ring and find out, I'm afraid.

    See http://www.ucas.com/students/results/examresults

    It should work for international students assuming your Exam Board is UK based.

    My firm is the University of Edinburgh, insurance is Glasgow, both with Neuroscience. Was certainly worth the wait, though I kind of miss the thrill of getting a reply .

    Hi,

    I've been offered a conditional for the FdA Textiles course at the AUCB in Bournemouth for 2012. When i went to my interview it was for the course starting this September 2011.

    I rang them when i was offered it for 2012 and they said that the course was full up and I am now currently on a waiting list for 2011- how annoying! Anyway I was wondering if anyone else was in a similar situation and would it be likely i would be offered a place for September 2011 during the summer months!?!

    Thank yoooo x x

    It's possible - but only the uni can tell you how likely it is. It's worth finding out how many are on the waiting list and where you are on it.

    How long does it take to get a letter from UCAS to confirm your decisions? I chose my firm almost two weeks ago and haven't heard anything.

    I've just been rejected by King's College London and wanted an opinion on it...

    I don't want to sound arrogant, but I applied with 10 A*s at GCSE and 2 A*s and an A at A Level (I'm on a gap year) and as the offer was for AAB, and there was no interview, I don't really understand why they rejected me.

    I wouldn't mind so much had I not been rejected from Cambridge and UCL already, and if I didn't want to go to King's so much.

    Any thoughts/sympathy would be lovely

    I am sorry you are disappointed, but only KCL can explain their decision. Many of their courses are highly competitive, so meeting or even exceeding their minimum entry requirements is not enough of itself to get you an offer. It sounds to me as if there may have been something missing from your PS, but you'll have to ask them about that.

    My friend applied there for English with his grades; A*A*AA, with an A* at AS aswell, and got rejected for a second time! Loads of EC's and a great personal statement, so made no sense! Just incredibly competitive I suppose

    I am sending copies of my certificates to my university and it says to write my UCAS number on the top of each document. Is this the same as the personal ID?

    Yeah, it's just the number you used to log into 'Apply'.

    Noone I know ever sent copies of their certificates.. or maybe they did.
    Didn't think you'd need to since SQA tell them your results anyway.

    SQA only tell them if you have a conditional and are waiting for your results this year before you definitely have a place.

    I'm pretty sure SQA told uni's for my friends who had unconditionals and for the people I've met at uni too :dontknow:
