    I wasn't too happy with my results:

    What were your results?

    Business Studies - A
    Computing - B
    Maths (Pure and Mech) - D
    Physics AS - C

    I was really expecting an A for Computing since I worked so damn hard for it, and got an almost perfect A last year. Also disappointed with maths, thought I could at least get a C (worked especially hard for this).

    What grades were you expecting?
    AACc

    What were your grades last year for AS?
    (if applicable)
    AADC

    What were your predicted grades by your school or college?
    AABc

    Your course and university of your firm/insurance offer as well as requirements of this offer?
    For Example:
    Firm: BSc AI with Ind Experience - Manchester Univerisity ? ABB.
    Insurance: BSc Applied Intelligent Systems - ReadingUniversity 300 UCAS points out of a maximum of 21 units.


    Despite not reaching your offer, will your firm/insurance choice still take you or are you going through clearing?
    This was the best part. After trying to get through to Manchester Uni for ten minutes, I gave the grades to the woman, expected a "Sorry, but you haven't been accepted." But... I was!!! I was surprised, she was suprised, my mum was surprised. Well chuffed. Granted, last night UCAS had noted my course was up for clearing, but since I wanted it I'm happy! Even I admit that if I were a admissions tutor, the grades I got would be far from enough for a course there. So I'm extremely lucky!

    I don't wish to post my results here as they were just too awful, but my first choice uni have still accepted me, and I didn't even have to ring up and beg (it was posted on the UCAS site) - and I know I only was accepted cos I had such a good personal statement and a really good interview. So for all you applying next year, it pays well to have a really good personal statement (mine was commented on by several tutors at interviews) and a good interview because they do remember you, and come results day they will say oh i'm sure he/she will do better here and they will take you - I've just proved it. So well done to those who did get good results, and to those who didn't - well done as well remember its not the end of the world.

    Got through on the Oxford admissions line but appartnly they haven't got my results and need to contact my school. More waiting and wondering to see if I got in - they say they will phone me back.
