    My offer was A*AA.

    I got A*BB. The first B was 6 ums away and the second was 9 ums away.

    Is it worth giving them a call? My further maths result is only 6 ums away when moving my maths modules around which they did not do in the results sheet.Maybe they missed that?

    This is computer science by the way.

    If it says unsuccessful, then no. If it's still conditional, then call them.

    Yes, definitely call them, you have absolutely nothing to lose, you can't be made any worse off! Do it and beg, doesn't matter if it's embarrassing for 5 mins if it can change your life.

    Good luck.

    Call them, nothing to lose. Keep in mind the unis only get your grades, not UMS, so may be persuaded after hearing how close you are.
    Also, consider getting priority remarks.

    Definitely call them. I missed my place by two grades in 2008 - I was supposed to get AAB and got BBC! Nightmare - I didn't think I would get my first or second choice, but when I called my first choice (Bristol Uni) just to check - it was fine and they still took me. You have nothing to loose.

    My friend called and they said that any decisions on Track are final but it is worth a try either way.
