nope, word is they only get 4 days to know your results. But they don't really need that much time, it doesnt take a comptuer long to check who has made the grade and who hasnt.

Hmmmm..i'd love to have my results back on tuesday....it would mean i could get on and prepare for uni(as long as i get the grades)....as opposed to sitting here waiting for another week!

*sigh*

Oh yeah! Like Willa said....unis will know soon! :frown:

Waiting is evil!!! Patience might be a virtue..but it's damned annoying!! :mad:

Ah well...i suppose they expect everyone to make the grades anyway. I checked out the stats for law..and i think about 10% of law offers given don't actually get places due to failing to meet grades....and that percentage is getting less every year...so hopefully..we're all in the majority that get the grades! :smile:

ooh where did you find that? i wonder what the stats are for architecture?

what would be a really good statistic is the average UMS score of people who miss their grades from BEFORE the final exams. Because do you think it's only people who are close to the grade boundaries that just miss, or do people who are sitting pretty with 90% of the marks available to them so far end up blowing it all and getting two D's or something and just missing the grades?

I believe that before these exams I was in a comfortable position, but I'm still dead scared.

Same here..i essentially needed BBC in this years exams to get the grades overall....and while getting less than 212 (highest mark i need from this years subjects) seems unfathomable....there's that nagging what if in my head....:frown:

ach, 75 people didnt get in for natural science, and in my college 10 people failed the meet their grades out of all the subjects. That's 6.6%!!!! I'm so scared!

But of course statstics mean nought when it comes to individual cases!

That would be an interesting statistic but, since Cam are not allowed to ask for UMS marks anymore apparently, it's unlikely to happen. I'd say that it was probably more people near the boundaries who miss, because anyone with a Cam offer is gonna work hard to make sure they achieve it I would expect.

I'm really really nervous about it too!

Yeah...true....but the statistics say we'll all probably get the grades....i think....i did mechanics :frown:

i think i needed: 86/200 from maths, 100/200 from further maths, 115/210 from physics and 116/210 from chemistry to just meet the A grade boundary. God forbid I get anywhere as low as that. I'm aiming for good A's in everything, but there are still a couple of exams I am really beginning to worry about.

aww thanks! :smile: about 12% get offers but dont get places... :frown: it might not all be because they missed their grades tho... *tries to think of reason why you would get an offer from cambridge but not get a place, other than grades :confused: *

Ha! You've got nothing to worry about then!! About 50% in everything is needed for you..i need 70 in two of them! :frown:

I can't think of any other reason...i jsut looked at the college one for Caius...3/154 people with offers didn't get a place in 2002..if its the same this year..hopefully i won't be one of the 3! :eek:
