i will think that MaYBE i am not ment to go to that uni
life is so much more then that, but sometimes when u got "trap"
into this kinda of environment and pressure, a lot of times u just need some time to get over it.
not worth to drop a single tear for it.
"FATE"
there are so many things in life to blam for if u keep digging it.
so might as well just stand out of the circle and think from other angles.

Go back to school and do an A-level in English in a year, then reapply to do English.


.....or, If i'm feeling particularly depressed, I shall flee to north canada and live in a shack for a year.

i have a friend who missed her offer for kcl and they rejected her, so she went to kcl in person and literally begged them to take her, convincing them that she'll work really hard and won't fall behind-they were convinced and they accepted her!

I'd check if they'd accept me anyway (it's likely German will be the thing that makes me miss my grades, not too important for a comp sci course), and if they didn't ask if they have any joint honours / different courses I might be interested in with lower entry reqs..

I will cry and beg them to let me in.
On second thoughts, I probably wouldn't and I'd end up moping for a while then apply for a Uni in a different country.

So noone would consider going to their insurance place or trying to get a place somewhere through clearing?
Unfortunately, I didn't even apply for an insurance coz' my firm is an ABC offer and the only other thing I could use for insurance was Leeds with BBB.

I'm more likely to achieve ABC than BBB anyway, and I'd prefer to go to another coutnry.

You could improve your grades and apply next year, or do an alternative qualification the require lower grades (e.g. HNC/HND, foundation degree. after that you transfer to a degree course).

Me!! I've already got a list of unis that offer english through ucas extra in the hope that it will indicate they'll be available for clearing, so that I can think about where to look on the 19th if things go badly!

I have the same! I even put together a list using last years clearing list for one of my friends who thinks he's missed his grades. But if I don't make my insurance, I'll be really annoyed- but best to be prepared anyway.

Well, I have had 2 rejections out of the 6 (Manchester and Nottingham). I found out from both on the tracking service on UCAS - I found out Manchester's 2 days before christmas and Nottingham's on the day of my January exams. I laughed - because I expected it, but I was later dissapointed with not getting into Manchester.

If I didn't get into Leeds (my firm) I don't think I would take it badly - just accept it and move on. The point is, I have not totally devouted myself to one subject - so I've left my choices open if I need to go through clearing etc.

That's impressive! How much did she miss her offer by?

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.
Sorry to hear that mate. Which subject?

Making list of possible clearing places means I can avoid thinking about results day! I just hate the waiting
