    hi,
    is there a way of letting the unis know that you were 1 or 2 marks of an A? I got ABBB but 2 of the B's were so close to an A.

    Referee = teacher or school administrator. Ask your subject teacher to mention how close you were to an A. They could also mention retakes if you are doing any.

    You should put in all your A2s with the date 06/2007 (or similar) and "Pending" grade.

    Either 1 private finance
    or 2 LEA.

    Although I think you can only get LEA support if your annual household income before tax is below something like £37,600. I don't think it really matters that much.

    You want to select No.2 I believe; the one that starts with "LEA" - otherwise you opt to pay a humongous amount more!

    i think you have to ask your school/college .. if ur applying as an individual, ask the local council, as they will deal with the funding and loans, your local LEA.

    regarding previous question, i got AAB, B was 4 marks off A, so i told referee to mention in reference.

    So do we have to put our AS grades? I think we was told that if we use predicted grades than we don’t have to put AS grades

    YOU MUST CHOOSE FEE CODE 02 EVEN IF YOU ARE TOO RICH FOR LEA SUPPORT

    The only other reasonable option for UK applicants is 05 if you're applying for NHS-funded courses. If you're applying for a mixture, choose the fee code which applies to the most courses.

    Click on the "assist" button to make sure you've chosen the right fee code.

    I don't think it's very good to mention anything about grades in your personal statement, plus it would sound a bit whiny, so get your referee to mention it.

    Whyknows: Have your AS grades been certified? If they have, you must declare them, but if they haven't, leave them as pending.
