I was doing Maths, economics and politics and i got BBD in that order.

I had a problem at school with my maths (i didn't have a teacher for about 2 to 3 months before the exam) The school told my first choice which was Leeds about the situation ( Leeds offered me BBB for economics and management studies). And the school said that the university will take into account the maths.

My insurance choice was manchester and they offered me BBC. Anyway, i was 3 marks off a C in maths. I couldn't get through to Leeds on thursday, so i decided to drive up from london. I spoke to head of admissions and he said that they won't take me with BBD because of their "high standards" and that they have people who they are going to reject who have ABC.

The head of admissions told me that if i get my papers re-marked and i get a C (which is only another 3 marks) they will re-consider my application and may offer me a place. They also said if i re-took maths and got a B i'd have a place at leeds. If i re-took maths in december, i'd re-take an economics module and hopefully get an A because i was only 10 marks out of an A.

My insurance choice (manchester) is a problem. Although i was only 3 marks off of a C they don't know that. I phoned them up on thursday and they told me over the phone that i was rejected. My head of 6th form stupidly didn't send them the letter earlier notifying them about the maths problem. I went in on friday and he said he'd phone them and let them know, the head of 6th form was supposed to phone me back this afternoon to let me know what was going on. He didn't. :mad:

So i'm going to phone manchester tomorrow to see what they say, if i have a place or not. I'm going to get some maths papers re-marked to hopefully get a C, and maybe get in to leeds. I don't really want to go to Manchester, the course seems quite boring. So i'm considering taking a year off and hopefully going to Leeds.

Sorry about the long post, hope you read it all.

yup i read it all!

thats why i didnt put an insurance down- incase i really really wanted to go to my first choice!

but now i dont have a chance...and it seems kinda dumb that they'll have me on re-sits because i'll still be the same person!!!

im happy going to exeter now...if they'll have me....driving the 4 hour journey there in 5 hours...to go and have a look...

so must sleep now..

keep me posted on how it goes!!

love Katy ***

I was offered that course at UMIST although i didn't originally apply for it. I turned it down because the thought of 3 more years of maths made me shudder.
