    Thanx to those who helped me write out that letter, I got the following reply from them. Damn I didnt get it.
    I dont want to take a year out, im gonna sulk now.



    Hello,
    Unfortunately the course is already full for September 2004 and so
    we do not go into clearing and we would not be able to change your
    offer. However if you attain the grades then you will be able to
    apply for September 2005.
    Thank you Helena

    Hmm, damn. You're not the only one, my sister has had 6/6 rejections and she's very clever.

    A years break might be good for you though.

    Psychology in Man Uni.
    The thing is, I did apply for them, but they wanted ABB and my teachers predicted me BCC, so they rejected me. This was last October.
    Now Im predicted AAB, so I emailed them asking that I had imroved, but they had no places left. Got Bad Luck.

    I do have a backup Man Met, they only wnat CCC, so a girl who is achieving AAB shouldnt go to a uni who wnat only 240 points.

    Did you get the school involved and ask your head of year to personally speak to them?

    No, cos its too late now, I dont go to college anymore and they have no places left. I was waiting to see what my May predicted grades would be, BCC to AAB is a big jump and I put all my time and effort into resitting most of my AS subjects to improve da grades. I told Man Uni about this, but they cant do naything now. But I was thinking, what If someone doesnt make the grades, would they then let others in on results day???

    When the school changed your predictions, did they not notify the universities?

    i agree, that is something they should have done. i seriously think you should notify the school of what has happened to you, as that might stop it from happening to other students.
    aww, bless. do you know where you are going to go now? dont sulk. read the sig and take life as it comes *dramatic sigh*

    I think the school should have notified them. You don't know for sure it's too late. Try getting in contact with your school and see if they can do anything. A university is more likely to take note if your head of year speaks to them than you.

    What were the "stupid reasons?" Medicine is a highly competitive course, they have thousands of very good applicants and can't take everybody. I'm sorry you were unlucky, what are you going to do instead?

    I hate Manchester, they weren't very accommodating to me either. Even when i met their offer they didn't give me a place. Are there any other institutions you'd be interested in going to or is it only really Manchester you're interested in?

    I emailed them again, asking if any one dropped out, would I have a chance?
    She replied with this:

    Hello,
    We have offered over our limit to allow for this and also to allow for
    the drop off in the first semester. As I have said before we will not
    be going into clearing. I am very sorry.
    Thank you Helena


    Looks like I would now have to end up in the *****est Uni of all Man Met (sorry if I caused offence to anyone who goes there.)
    Or become a house wife, gotta find a husband first, lol.

    aw that's such a *******,

    the admin tutors at manchester were ******s anyway, i had about 5 people assessing me in my interview, 2 professors, 1 dentist, and 2 students

    it was horrible but the only reason i put it down for my insurance was because its a respectable institution
    thats the only reason ( and the nightlife is ok )

    i feel for you, cos you have worked hard to get the new predicted grades that you have, all i can say is try and get a decent gap year going or get a job that will get u enough money for the first few months of uni next year.

    because really you do want to go to a good uni, and its better that you do go to a decent one instead of the one that offered u CCC. if it helps you feel better more and more people are taking gap year, for the course i applied to an average of 40% of people getting in have already done it.

    good luck anyway
