I have got my grades already and i did much better than expected which leads me to the question does either oxford or cambridge uni take part in adjustment as the grades ive got are enough to get into that of oxford or cambridge as ive checked both unis and for the course i am wanting to do ? any help

TSR Support Team edit:
Oxbridge isn't in adjustment, however if you have achieved better than expected and want to consider the Oxbridge option as a gap year applicant you could use the Post-Results Advice Clinic being hosted by Christ's Admissions. It is a free, one-to-one skype or in-person chat with a member of the college admissions team.

^, sorry. If you are determined to go to Oxbridge, you'll need to take a gap year and re-apply.

It's Oxbridge. They don't take part in clearing.

Oxbridge are not the be all and end all of unis. If you already have a place at a uni you'd like to go to then don't reject your offer to apply to a uni you might not like/get into. You wouldn't be doing yourself any favours. Besides, you could always do your master's at Oxbridge.

Doonesbury what do you think?

Well, yes that's the only option for undergrad entry. If you don't mind taking a gap year and do so in the knowledge there's no guarantees of Oxbridge success then sure it's perfectly fine to give it a shot.

Which course, and what do you *think* your grades will be (and the subjects)?

As Desmos says, the postgrad route is also a choice anyway.

my firm and insurance choice were unis which were very well respected its just i had done better than what i thought so i thought why not try to see if either uni did adjustment as i wouldve loved to go to either uni as i went to oxford with my college for an event and it seemed like a very good uni and something i wouldve liked its just i thought i wasnt going to get those sorts of grades so i didnt apply

my current grades are A*A*A and law as i was applying to do law at my currenty firm and insurance aswell but yes i will look into post grade route

would the oxbridge require interviews and different tests to be taken like the LNAT test as i have already take the LNAT and done stuff like that

You can do a second undergraduate at Cambridge as an affiliated student in 2 years rather than the normal 3. This used to be a very popular option with courses like law. However, the ELQ rules mean that you would need to fund both the university tuition fee plus the college fee now - realistically you'd be looking at about £14-16K per year. I don't know what your financial position is (nor do I want to know), but I thought I'd put this as an option for you.

I originally quoted your post by error - that's probably why you got the notification.
