    Unfortunately for them there is not a damn thing they can do about me now, they made the mistake of making me an offer and they can live with it!!!

    Yeh this is what I mean, I have all my 6 offers so I dont see why knowing what Ive got in my January modules is going to make the blindest bit of difference?

    Whats the point if they have already made you an offer? They cant retract it can they? I messed up mine, but hopefully should come good by summer! (maybe!!)

    I suppose where students have had to sit a test for the remaining places eg, law at nottingham, it willl help them decide places. Again NOT FAIR since not everyone took Jan exams, alot of ppl i know just do summer.

    It could have something to do with the fact that they give more conditional offers than they do places, because not everyone is going to get the right grades. Perhaps they look at the January exams as a measure for how many people are likely to achieve the summer results, and can then know if they have any more places or not.

    I have no idea if thats true or not i'm just speculating...
