    Hey guys , as we allknow , A levels result day is coming soon and I was just wondering whether the univeristy gets our results before we get ours a week and decide whether they would take us . So if we get rejected , is there any point calling them to plead them to take us if we are rejected after a week of consideration? Thankyou

    Yes they get the results before you do.

    And no, there's no point calling to beg.

    If you have extenuating circumstances then your referee should notify your universities well in advance of results day (ie now).

    The myth of "ringing up to beg" success stories are from people who missed their offer grades but had no update on Track on results day. They rang up to "beg" and were told they were accepted. Their begging played no part in the decision - it was already made. Their universities just hadn't finished the data input to send their acceptance to UCAS before results day.

    It may be worth stating something if your UCAS offer is still set as 'conditional'. However, if it says 'unsuccessful' there is no point, the university has made their decision. This happened to me last year, I was a couple of marks of getting in to my firm choice. I explained to the university that I had major cardio-thoracic surgery with a 6 months recovery time whilst doing my A2 year at sixth form, but it was too late as they had already made their mind and the course was full. My advice is, you might as well try because you have nothing to lose. It probably also depends on how popular the course is too!
