    I fell ill just a little before my exams, and it really affected my performance. I have been rejected by my insurance and firm now, and plan on going through clearing.

    My GCSE and AS levels are quite good, but my A2's are less than average.

    How do I tell the unis in clearing, the ones that I call up, that my being ill really affected my exams. I have performed well academically in the past, and they will see that..

    Do i have to email them, or just tell them on the phone? :confused:

    When you tell them which course you want to apply for through clearing and they have all your info up in front on them just explain your scenario. I called up Napier University when I was in clearing and the lady on the phone was really sweet and friendly, just remember they are humans and if you don't ask you don't get.

    Could you appeal your results? If you did better in your prelims?

    I am getting my grades remarked and everything but it will take a long time, cuz the exam board i am with is pretty slow..

    So i don't need to fill anything out and send it to them? I think i remember something called a mitigating circumstances form? (sorry if i have spelt it wrong)
