Commiserations to you. I do know exactly how you feel (having been rejected by Cambridge)... and I really hope you don't think of yourself as a 'retard'.. ever. Hope that you get more positive feedback from your remaining unis. There will always be those that you will do well in, and enjoy.

Take care! xoxo

Yes will do, what did u get for AS
economics A, engl lit A politics A and Psy B dropped Psy n predicted all As?! but the thing that makes me diff is that my first yr i did all science based subjects and did really bad cos i hated them! i decided/was told by teachers that i needed to hav an extra yr at school cos my potential was better than that so i did. and changed subjects so im actually 19 now if that makes sense?!

Ahh.. that really shouldn't count against you though! If it did, I'd think it really unfair. It shows that you can do well when doing subjects you are interested in/have talent in. And honestly, your results are very good. Are you still waiting for any unis? Coz' if you are, I wouldn't be too fearful with your results

yea thx a lot... hope they'll keep considering me at least...shouldn't be too bad if predicted AAB ! (Maths, Econ, History) it's my first choice so fingers crossed...
um...i'm actually an international student...from HK. Though it could be a slight advantage (which i don't really think so) I do agree with other ppl that internationals should be treated in the same way as anyone else...there shouldn't be a difference with lower or higher offers...

Yeah same here - ive been predicted the same.
I've had Durham, Exeter, Reading, Southampton & Warwick - don't wanna go to Warwick n Durham, n really unsure about Southampton!! I'm still waiting on LSE! York are stupid for rejecting you! So what have you applied to at all of them then? As i looked at UCL but they didn't do the course - i was tempted by Economics n Economic History, but decided not to as its the degree my uncle did there n got a 1st - too much pressure!

Well done btw!!!!!!

oh great well done...they're all great unis...haha maybe becoz york doesn't like international students...anyway doesn't matter
yea I've applied for Accounting and Finance for nearly all of them...except for york it's econ and fin and UCL it's Econ and stat. !
u're absolutely right...UCL doesn't have the course but somehow I still picked that ! I realised that I've been silly and should have gone for Bristol or Durham instead for the right course ! that's why i dun wanna go to UCL now...:P
