    So just to let you know, I got it in, in the end! Missed out on the A* in maths by one UMS but boohoo, A* in English literature compensated that!
    Awesome! Who cares about A levels anyway XD I got 91 in C4 and scraped an A*. I got A*AA haha. See you there

    Can't decided what I am more: ecstatic for my results or psyched for next year!

    Entrance exams:

    STEP I: S (104)
    STEP II: S (100)
    STEP III: 1 (79)

    A-levels:

    Mathematics: A*
    Further Mathematics: A*
    Additional Further Mathematics: A*
    Physics: A*
    English Language and Literature: A
    Spanish: B
    Critical Thinking (AS): a

    ...hence reaching my target of getting more A*s at A-level than at GCSE. **** the system! :lol:

    Edit: Oh and, importantly, am going to Emmanuel! WOOOOO! Anyone else going to Emma?

    Hi everyone!

    Managed to both dance with joy and collapse with relief at once when I got my results - A* A* A* a*, so I am comfortably in for Natural Sciences at Pembroke! :excited:
    And I am so very, very excited

    Congratulations to everyone else with good news and commiserations to those who haven't - you've all done fantastically to get here and will doubtless go to very good universities and do very well there

    Yes, have been accepted for geography on 3 A grades + an A in EPQ and A in Gen. Studs. Was 7 UMS of an A* in geography, 8 off in physics, and only got 73 in C4 so 17 off in maths.

    Anyone for Jesus or music?

    I've got a music place at Emma. Kind of seems like we're a dying breed though?

    I'm in the weirdest of situations. I'm an international student holding an offer for CompSci with Maths at Magdalene.I took the French Baccalaureate and was asked for : 16/20 overall score, 17/20 in Maths, Physics and Chemistry. Plus S and 1 in any order in STEPs II and III(Seeing that I do not take the STEP syllabus as part of my studies at (my French)school, this was incredibly hard for me in any case,especially since I had so little time to cover the syllabus on my own). However, they did mention in my offer letter that should I fail to meet only the STEP part, they may consider me for CompSci with NatSci instead. Today, my STEP results were quite disappointing(77 in II(2), 45 in III(3)) (especially as I was so close to the upper score boundaries!) and I missed the STEP part of my offer. On the other hand, my French Baccalaureate grades were very much in excess of what they asked for (18.02 overall, 20/20 in Maths, 19 in Phys and Chem), so I wrote to my college, stating that I am open to a CompSci with NatSci course instead, should they not be able to relax the STEP condition. To make things worse, my college still hasn't contacted me. They only sent me an automated message telling me to send my UMS scores!!!!!! . Should I be comfortable knowing that my college has mentioned the CompSci with NatSci alternative (which does not require STEP anyway) in the offer letter and so it must be a concrete possibility? Or is there something else I must do? I can't even describe how stressed I am right now. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

    I think you've just got to wait, really. Sorry - I don't think there's much else you can do (and harassing further probably wouldn't help!). If you haven't heard by Monday, give them a call.

    I got 3 A* at A Level with 98%,96%,95% - and an S in maths STEP II (109 marks) - but had a shocker with a 3 (46 marks) in maths STEP III. I had offer at Trinity but the 3 means they have pooled me. What are the chances of getting an offer to read maths at another college do people think?
    Wow... this is extremely similar to me with [email protected] + pooled + S,3 in STEP...

    I wish you the best luck for tomorrow.

    Better than mine, to be sure. I feel my chances in the summer pool shrink with every post I read

    Changing to Compsci without maths is definitely a thing potentially offered by almost all colleges to someone who missed their step offer. There's about 80 percent chance (I feel personally) that this happens. All you can do right now though is to wait.

    Thanks and thanks lp386 (oh and I meant nothing bad when I said they asked for UMS, it's just that this doesn't apply to my case(French Bac), which really bummed me out, especially as I was so anxious to know whether I'd earn a place, didn't meet any disrespect to anyone)
