    I was off my firm by two grades and they still wanted me for a foundation year, but I chose to go to my insurance, which accepted me even though I was one grade off. whoop

    My offer was ABB had BCC and got in... i was SO angry at my grades because i worked so freaking hard! :/
    SO happy that my first choice Uni accepted me though, would like to think that they saw something that showed that i am hard working and a determined student!

    It's true what they say, exams CAN go wrong even if you do try really hard... that was evident for me Thursday!

    Yup. Similar thing happened to me. Except, now I feel quite inferior when I hear a large number on the forums getting in to my uni with string of A*... Like, am I worthy ?!

    Manchester University offered me AAB for German and Spanish after my interview, I got BBC and still got in...
    properly disappointed in my results as the offer was my predicted grades but, never mind things don't always turn out perfectly.

    My boyfriend was offered BBB, he got CDE and still got into his Uni. I got ABB, when I was offered AAB and also got in.:confused:

    Maybe it was a bad year for A-levels on both of our two courses...
