    Offer: AAB
    Achieved: BBC

    This was to study biomedical science at the University of Sheffield. Still can't believe I got in! I was only a few marks off achieving ABB so if I didn't get in I would be very frustrated.

    Missed my requirements for Loughborough (ABB)

    and got A*AE

    Still got in even though I was 20 UCAS points lower than the requirement (320). I got the E in business studies, our teacher wasn't good as he would just share life lessons and tell anecdotes all lesson, me and my friends attended our own study group twice a week and really put our head down during holidays. But still got an E, regret taking business, but I'm so freaking happy I got in.

    I couldn't sleep all night the day before results day full of anxiety. I smiled and skipped to college to collect my results after checking on track.

    My course I applied for is Politics and International Relations. Now I am celebrating
    So grateful the let me in despite being 20 UCAS lower and getting a E. Looks really bad, but my As make up for it.

    I am so jealous!!
    Manchester rejected me for just one grade.
    Needed AAB for international relations,
    got ABB and still rejected me.
    Fortunately they instead offer me philosophy and politics.

    I shouldn't have looked at this thread cos it just depresses me. I get an offer of A*AA with the A*in Maths for my firm but get A*AA with the A* in economics but still get rejected.

    Congratulations on your place, I wish I'd got some leniency too
    Man, similar thing happened to my friend, I feel sorry for your loss, but you must have got into your insurance though right??

    Congrats also on those results, getting A*AA is an incredible achievement, just try to think of that too.
