I am just asking about thing s you've seen or herd?
To get the ball rolling:
1/ My mate needed an A to meet his offer for Liverpool and he had just scraped a B he went and got a remark and said B went down to a C (at that point i suggested clearing he said "no clearing cheating everyone in clearing is a cheat" which earned him a few dirty looks what he did ned we he went for a second remark which brought him down to a D (not enough points to get in to any uni)he then went for a final priority remark and got an E (same as I got but then I also had a BND and enough UCAS for my course)
2/An oriental girl my brother knew I herd having a conversation with her mother like this "Hi Mum yeah I got AAB so ... no I didn't fail...Yes but...i met my offer...a B is not a fail ... I don't need all A's ...I AM GOING TO UNI...NO THEY HAVE ALREADY ACCEPTED ME... no I'm sure they haven't made a mistake... yes Mum you are quite within your rights to call them but they'll tell you the same as i did." which made me laugh as i wondered around congratulating and getting congratulations from my course mates and teachers.
Or does it play no part?
