    Despite not reaching your offer, will your firm/insurance choice still take you or are you going through clearing?

    No, they don't have any places for me on the course I had an offer for or any of the others that I was interested in despite missing the entry requirements by 2 marks!

    I've spent today speaking to every admissions tutor in the country. I'm on a few waiting lists and I've secured one place. I'm still upset and a bit confused about where to go from here, but I'll sort it out. It's not the end of the world.. I hope
