I applied to Warwick university for Law and Business and I needed AAB for my course. I expected to get a B in my maths and 2As in both economics and psychology as I was predicted. However, I got:
Economics 77/100 - B Off by 3%
Psychology 79.75/100 - B off by 0.25%
Mathematics 68/100 - C off by 2%
I've called Warwick to appeal but they advised me to re-mark it seeing how close I was and they verbally said that they would keep my place by 31st August if it was successful. I have called other universities in clearing and they shared the same view as they are unable to give me any offers. My teachers were also shocked with my results as well and are helping me get it re-marked.
Assuming my re-marks were unsuccessful, what would be the best option for me?
1) I managed to get an offer from Essex university for law with my current grades, however I feel uneasy because I do not find Essex appealing.
2) Another option for me is to go for a 'twinning' program where I study locally in Malaysia for a year and spend the next 2 years in the UK, e.g. Manchester or Sheffield university.
3) To consider taking a gap year and re-sit my A levels. However, I have been strongly advised against that because it's too risky and I would waste a year.
Could anyone please give me any advice on my situation and what I should do? Warwick has always been a dream of mine and I would do anything to get in. Any idea whether one can transfer to Warwick from Essex after the first year if they did well?
All constructive answers are appreciated greatly.
Missed grades by narrow margins. Advice? Watch

> Arranged the re-marks

> Found a clearing place in case
If the re-marks come back higher = woo hoo
If they do not then you need to decide then what to do
In the mean time is a visit to Essex possible - and a longer look at the prospectus - and a chat on here and on FB with people who are already there for law
If all of that still leaves you doubtful - ask Warwick what the impact of a gap year would be
Edit : just realised you are in Malaysia so a visit may be difficultLast edited by TenOfThem; 17-08-2013 at 11:23.
