    Greetings folks,I received my CIE A level results today morning and unfortunately i missed my offer by a grade. Got AAA and the required grades were A*AA.Now the universities still dont know about it because the UCAS said the results will be transmitted to the universities over the weekend. So, this means I wont get a response from my firm (UoM) before the next Thursday (18/8) as the UCAS goes offline by tomorrow noon.What now? What's the best course of action at the moment? Should I email the university begging my way in? Should I wait till next week?As a side note, Im an overseas student so i need to get my confirmation letter ASAP so i can get started with my visa application. Also my course isnt on Clearing.

    Hey I think you might want to call them up and speak to them, but they might just keep you waiting till the 18th... You can ask on the official A Level results thread, they have lots of knowledgable folks helping out there. Good luck!
    PS: we have a CIE results thread here!
