Have KCL got back to you for Law yet?
Well the guy said if they dont get back to me, assume the application was unsuccessful. Since they never phoned back, i decided to phone them back anyway to confirm and they said there were no vacancies, so yeah...

Firm uni: Exeter
Offer Grades: AAB
Course: Law and European Legal Studies
Actual Grades: A*AAB at the moment (I'm getting some papers remarked)
Uni/s applied to through Adjustment: Only Durham
Offer/s received? Durham for Combined Honours in Arts (Philosophy, Spanish and Italian methinks)
Offer accepted? Same as the above.
How easy/straightforward was it? I think it was straightforward. I even changed courses without no hassle. I just got a phone call and had a nice talk with one of the admissions tutors. I hate talking on the phone, but it was fine. I kept on stressing out when I didn't need to as well.
Your reaction: I'm ecstatic and cannot actually believe that I'm going to the university of Durham. I thought they would reject me for some reason. I'm also kind of scared because I don't know what to expect when I get to Durham. I'm relieved that I don't have to keep checking my emails and track as well.

Firm Uni: SOAS
Offer Grades: AAA
Course: Politics
Actual grades: AAB
Uni Applied to: King's College
Offer Received/Accepted: King's College for Theology
How easy it was: Unbelievably easy, I gave King's a phone call because I was having second thoughts about Politics. They had a place, and fifteen minutes later I was offered a place.
Your reaction: Much much happier with the position I was in, I didn't even think I could apply in adjustment as I did not exceed my grades but called up King's anyway. So relieved.

Call them!! the worst they could say is no.
Call which ever redbrick univerisity ASAP tomorrow and let them know your situation.
I would though before doing this get a list of the numbers prepared and list them in order of the one you wish to go to most -> least.
There is no harm in doing so because you won't loose your Uni place and it's worth trying to go somewhere higher GOOD LUCK I wish you all the best in your results..LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES!!!

Firm uni: Aberdeen
Offer Grades: 34 IB points (2nd year entry)
Course: Economics
Actual Grades: 38 IB points
Uni/s applied to through Adjustment: Edinburgh, Glasgow and York
Offer/s received? York
Offer accepted? York
How easy/straightforward was it? Getting a verbal offer from the uni is literally 3 minutes of talk, no "mini-interview" (for my course) took place. But it takes a long time to wait for the uni to add me on track and uni admissions officers are not very familiar with the adjustment process (one of them keeps telling me to add them on track, the other one keeps telling me to ask my Firm uni to release me). And the UCAS adviser was not very helpful either.
Your reaction: Happy

THEN i had to register for the university's student account and personal ID stuff errghhhh!!! by 2 pm today everything is now sorted and has only got to pay the deposit of my accommodation at my new uni
