    The YOU thing was actually very clever, I'm embarrassed to say it worked on me.

    What do you mean by THE university? Which one are you talking about?

    I don't know

    There's a very real possibility that I'll just miss my grades - if I do, it'll just be devestating. I'm already mentally preparing myself to go to this particular university. I've even got a job lined up there. So it's just gonna be like the world's ended if I don't get in Even if I get a place somewhere else through clearing, it will just mess me up all psychologically :P

    I was rejected from 6/6 UCAS options. I found out one evening after logging onto my UCAS account. First I was shocked, then upset, then worried, then depressed. Eventually, I accepted that going to university wasn't to be and I decided to get a full time job. I gave UCAS Extra a go and got an offer on the first place I applied too. I met the grades and got in.

    If my uni rejects me I will just continue working, just for a bit longer, but I'll still go to japan for a month or so, and then come back and go to college or something.

    Well since I will be applying for six, hopefully at least one will accept me! If not, I don't know. Maybe I'll try UCAS extra or clearing. If that doesn't work out I'll take a gap year

    I was told that if I miss my grades to phone them up and do not automatically presume that I have been rejected. This was at an open day that was held for those who were made offers to. I've been told many universities would accept you if you were not far off, such as one grade. If the university really wanted you and you missed by one grade I guess they are not going to be that picky, especially if you made a good impression to them when you applied and did so fairly early.

    Personally, since being made an offer I have contacted the admissions tutor (twice) who was responsible for making me an offer on information regarding to a topic within law. She seemed to be very impressed and I have given my UCAS number etc so if she wanted to know who exactly I was from the emails she can use the number I gave.

    She acknowledged me in my second email regarding to the previous one I sent, which were not exactly day after each other, in fact, several weeks. I wouldn't remember that so maybe it's a good sign.

    I'd carry on another year at college and choose different universities (maybe not all 6 though). This was what my tutor advised me, and it's just as well I don't have to retire that early, which was my previous life ambition (civilian airlinepilot). I'm just not too good at exams first time round and boost my grades dramatically second time around without much revision. This is annoying because if I wanted to retake a summer exam I would have to do so in the next academic year, oh well.
