As Michael Gove (just typing his name is making me angry) changed exam structure from modular to linear and left the current A2 year group stuck in the middle (as we had completed our AS's by having modular exams, but were left to complete our A2's with all of our exams crammed into a 2 or 3 week period) do you think Unis will be more lenient, and will let us in with grades lower than our conditional offers?
Also, this open letter that Ofqual has sent to all centres http://ofqual.gov.uk/news/summer-201...ools-colleges/ says that they expect more variability is results this year (I'm still kinda confused as to what that means) but do you think this variability in results could work in our favour, so unis will let us in with lower grades?
(my offer is AAA for biotech at Edinburgh and I'm 100% sure that I haven't got the A in chemistry)
Will universities be more lenient this year after the mess Michael Gove has made? Watch

More variability simply means that the results may be different this year. For instance, a sixth form may normally see 20% of Geography AS students get a B, and some years there is a small level of variation, so sometimes they get 15%, other years 25%. More variability means that they could see 50% of their students get B's, or 10% of their students get B's this year.
As for if you'll get let in, you'll just have to wait and see. If everybody except you got their offer, you won't get in. If they all struggled as much as you, you may be in with the chance.
