    I'm a discerning chap!
    I'd say that's a fundamental quality for an admission tutor.

    Hi, I have a banner for my insurance choice saying "Congraulations, your place at X for Y has been confirmed" so this means I have missed my grades for Cambridge, right? Also my insurance offer has turned unconditional... But it then says "you are guaranteed a place here if you do not meet the conditions for your first choice". Can someone confirm for me that I haven't got in?
    Only if your Firm has rejected you. Until then you are still pending.

    Sort of in a state of disbelief! My mum is kind-of an emotional mess. 😂

    Thanks so much for all of the threads and everything Dr. Spencer! Really can't wait to thank you in person. 👏🏻 See you in October.
    You've done fantastically well and you and your Mum should be super proud. I'm looking forward to teaching you next term!

    Well done to everyone who has made their offer and commiserations to those who haven't- it's not much compensation I know but this is a very bitter-sweet day for us as Admissions Tutors, really happy about those who've made it but tinged with sadness about those who haven't. You've all done really well to get offers in the first place (more than I ever managed back in the day) and will be successful wherever you go now.

    For those still waiting, hang on in there, there will be a fair amount of activity in the Summer Pool (not masses but a bit more than normal I expect) so things aren't finished yet. If you want to be released to your insurance let your college know and we'll do it asap.

    Out of interest ( and I know it's early days), have you noticed more variation in this year's results due to the Linear A levels? I can't help feeling sorry for this year's students TBH. Thanks

    Do the re-mark. My daughter got 3xA* and 2A in 2013 and we got one of the As remarked cos it was only one of the A2 units that was below 90. She got the A* on the remark and the satisfaction remains to this day. It's best to be rewarded adequately for your effort and not accept a lower grade if you believe you were better.
    Perhaps you quoted me wrongly....?
    I'm not the poster who was wondering about re-mark nor am even a student!

    But anyway.....
    I think it's sometimes very important to learn to let go and move on, especially if it doesn't make any difference in the effect other than your pride.
    I'm sure you know as another adult in the real life you encounter a lot of occasions where things are/were done in a way you didn't like it but you only have to let go. You should of course make an effort or even fight to get things corrected if the outcome would be different or more just, but if it's not it can be better if you just let go and stop dwelling on it. Personally remarking A-level in a such situation like OP's is a good example of that, and it seems he now thinks so, too, though you may still disagree. It's a personal choice, anyway.

    In many cases of re-marks, it's a school who pay for the cost, not yourself, so that's another thing one must take into account, whether it justifies your school having to spend their budget while they must have a lot more things they need to use their precious money on.
