    If you miss your offer you have to send them a copy of your results form asap with the ums you got, but otherwise if you meet it its legally binding so makes no difference f you get 600/600 or 480/600 with 90% in a2 units

    Oh okay, that makes sense! So the 95% UMS stuff doesn't really apply once you already have an offer. Seems simple enough on paper I guess

    Yeah, you want high AS UMS to get up your chances of an offer/interview but then, if you do manage an offer and it is specified as something like A*A*A + 1, 1 in II, III (in my case) - you need only get those grades and they're then obliged by law to take you in if you do get those, irregardless of UMS. If you miss the teeniest condition, they're no longer bound to take you, but they can if they wish.
    Just checking - and sorry if this seems a bit random - is this irrespective of your criminal status? Because in the US if you have any update to your criminal history, you must immediately inform the university and they have the right to reassess. Not that I'd expect you to have experience

    Thank you Hope this is true!

    That is not true, I don't think Zacken correct me if I am wrong

    But in normal A level to get an A* you need 180/200 in C3+4 and an A overall. You have 180, so now you just need an A overall (480/600). 480-200-180-89 = 11UMS

    Rightly so. Same applies in the UK. :rofl: I'm sure that that's something that concerns you greatly, though...

    If you don't believe him, it's in the IAL specification. Just look up the section under "Grade reporting" or something.

    Thanks man

    I think I will!
    If nothing works out, we IALer's still have June session, and I'd really recommend you focus on Unit 5 and 6.

    I know you will ace those units.

    That sucks! I can't even begin to imagine the suspense of not having any idea when you're going to get your results! Can't your centre contact the exam board?

    If your status changed then the contract is no longer valid so they're no longer contractually obliged to take you. The same is true of subject choices - even if they made you an offer on say maths fm physics if on ucas you said you were doing chem as well the contract technically isn't valid if you don't take chem (although if you informed them they would possibly allow you to drop it)

    Yep, that's correct. You need 180/200 in C34 minimum as well as 480/600 over your maths A-Level, so you only need 11 UMS in your M1 as 403 said; congratulations on those marks.
    Should've done better in S1 but thank you

    Oh well, nothing I can do about it. My centre is utterly clueless, they don't even know what the online system thing is. :facepalm: I'll get it when I get it, I suppose. I'll update y'all when I do.

    Ahh cheers! Indeed :laugh:
    Actually, I might have to worry about it too; in case things like this happen to me! :laugh:

    That's very unprofessional of them, they should get it through Edexcel Online/EDI or through Mail definitely 1 day before the actual results day by Pearson.

    It's a public organisation, so clueless government pencil pushers who have no clue what's going on and couldn't care less. I sent them an email detailing how to sign up for Edexcel Online but they said that they weren't going to go through the trouble for just one candidate. :laugh: Oh well, nothing I can do about it now. :dontknow:
