    I am going into my A2's this September, so I only just received my AS results
    My results were BBBD (but I will be dropping the D grade in Biology).
    The three B's were in English Literature, Psychology and History

    I'm not trying to get an easy way out or anything but I do have genuine extenuating circumstances.
    My attendance was 79% in year 12 due to complications with my kidneys/bladder
    Can I claim for extenuating circumstances in UCAS?
    And does this mean Uni's may offer me a lower offer, do I call up universities and ask?
    Will all the be put on UCAS?
    Will I have to put it in my personal statement or how will universities know?

    Can my school also take it into acccount of doing my predicted grades? I'm sure if I was physically healthy during my AS's I would've achieved higher

    I was in hospital a few weeks before my A2s- and had an on going medical issue that wouldn't be resolved until I had surgery after my exams. it was a pretty bad time so I understand how you feel.
    I went to my exams office before my exams, and I told them the problem. I had to provide my hospital discharge letter- you will need proof such as a doctors note. they will also want to see any medication you are on.
    the exam boards may award you a set amount of extra marks if they think your case is extreme enough. as you've already sat your exams I don't know what the process is but. I would start by speaking to your exam officer. I don't think you put this in your personal statement. it may go in your tutors statement but im not sure. I chose to email the two unis I firmed and insured- but once again my problem only started when id applied. your exam officer will know what to do

    I am wondering the same thing... Except with me, it was long term Insomnia.
