I had a conditional offer of AAA and I have just been to pick up my results and only have ABB Anyway I have just logged onto track and my conditional offer has changed to unconditional so it looks like I have got in

Is it normal for City to let people in who have missed 2 grades?
I want to celebrate but I feel like somebody knows something that I don't. UCAS is probably playing a mean trick.

No. I missed the offer. I got BCD instead of BBB. (even though there were extenuating circumstances for me getting a D - the fact that we didn't have a teacher for about 3 months). They wouldn't let me on the course. In addition, neither did Goldsmiths my insurance (BBC).

I have been in contact with City this morning for a combined Journalsim & Psychology course, but was told they only accept studnets with b's and c's (the offer is BBC), regardless of my extenuating circumstances. Due to my persistance, they said to contact them on Tuesday after interviews, to see if there are any places available). It REALLY sucks. Thanks to my stupid college i'm now left with nowhere to go but London Met & UEL - neither of which, i want to go to.

Hmm this is sad...... I had the same conditional offer and i got the same grades as you did but i was accepted...... maybe because i had sciences and a B in Mathematics !!!

Any way dont just give up City has many places even after Clearance...... So keep on bugging em until they let u in

I tried to but could only get through to an answering machine. However I have just received a confirmation letter off UCAS this morning with a form to return to City so I am going to post that today.

xavier2k3, sorry to hear they haven’t let you in straight away. It seems unfair that they are not even really considering the circumstances. Well good luck on Tuesday. Just remember, if begging doesn't work resort to bribing

Thanks for the kind words guys. I'm not willing to give up without a fight. I REALLY want to be a part of the city university, and am willing to do exactly whatever it takes to try and secure my place for September 06.

my firm rejected me but city was my insurance, but its still on conditional. i got BBC though my offer was ABB so i will be over the moon if they do accept me as it saves me the hassle of going through clearing. (though ive got a few places lined up including reading, westmin and essex but wud prefer city!)

they told em to contact them early this week, but ive lost my voice so cant even speak! timing eh

Well, my first choice is the Journalism & Psychology course, if i don't get on that, then i'll try the Sociology combined with Psychology i believe. Again, thanks for your advice!
