Affectation: I was predicted AAA, got 100% at AS Eng Lit, and applied to Cambridge (was interviewed), York, Durham, Bristol, Warwick and Leeds. All of them except Leeds rejected me, and I heard from Leeds last and by that point, fully expected them to reject me too. Imagine how you feel being rejected by your top 3, I got rejected by each #1 place in turn (when I got one rejection, somewhere else would move up to #1, then they'd reject me, etc.). As it was, Leeds is definitely the place for me out of all the ones I applied for, but I only know that now. Don't write it off and don't worry, you'll have a good time.
