    What if you only have maths and further maths UMS and other subjects are reformed so no AS? Do you get auto pooled for an average in those two subjects? Seems a bit unfair if they only auto pool when can average 3 STEM subjects but not with two. MY son would have qualified for auto pooling in two maths ones with 94.6 average in the maths and further maths. He did not sit AS in physics and chemistry because it wasn't available. Had 90% plus in internal exams and A* predictions in 3 subjects: maths, further maths, physics and A prediction chemistry. Should he have been auto pooled?
    No. All maths are combined for UMS average purposes, and then you need 3 qualifying subjects (including the combined maths) with UMS for auto-pooling.

    BUT actually candidates that are pooled "on merit" rather than just "auto-pooled" have a higher success rate. So I wouldn't get too concerned by auto-pooling anyway.

    Call them and ask. If they aren't following the agreed* procedure then they should expect to be hassled

    *mention what MEAT said. He is also deputy-chair of the University Admissions Forum so does know what's what
    I just called them and they said it should be in my mailbox. I told them it's not there, so I think they will be resending it. Fingers crossed!

    Check they sent to a right email address. There was a case yesterday a college sent to a wrong address.

    Are they starting to update UCAS? Looks like i'm going to find out this way rather than any form of mail.

    Also, sorry you didn't get in. I'm sure you'll thrive wherever you go!

    Yep! Bath, Durham and Surrey. Just waiting on Warwick now.

    Providing I get the grades, I'll be off to Durham in October which I'm super excited about!!!

    Letter finally come through the post, and it was a rejection. I'm honestly more annoyed that they made us wait so long, but as much as I knew it would happen i'm still disappointed.

    Oh well.

    For people who should've heard on the 12th but haven't because of technical difficulties or missed post or whatever, yes today is the probably the day. But for pool reinterviewees, we won't get a decision until Tomorrow at the earliest, but most likely we'll hear next week. My interviews were yesterday so I should know by Monday, but some don't have their interviews until Monday. I imagine those guys will know by next Friday-ish?

    I'm kind of thinking of reapplying next year for Bio NatSci, and doing a third year in sixth form. I'll need to do 3 AS/A2s, so if I do Further Maths (AS + A2) then I only need one more. I'm thinking Politics. Any recommendations? I already do Maths, Bio, Chem and Physics

    Just get A*A*A*, you don't need to add a 3rd year.
