    Greetings everyone

    So I have just received a track update saying that my Aberdeen application for Psychology has been unsuccessful and I honestly don't understand why... I'm doing the IB and their entry requirements are 32 points and 555 at HL, while my predicted grades are 43 and 776 at HL... I know grades aren't everything, but I feel like my personal statement was okay, and the reference should also be okay since my professor wrote it who likes me and also has experience writing personal statements... Can I ask the university for clarification or anything? Because Aberdeen was my safe choice and now that I wasn't accepted there I'm suddenly really nervous about my other choices. I've received an offer from Glasgow already, but am still waiting for UCL, Edinburgh and St Andrews. If my application was not good enough for Aberdeen, then it also probably won't be enough for the other unis...

    Unfortunately without knowing everything about your application or the people you were up against we can’t say for certain but you could consider contacting them and asking for feedback as to your application, that will be the easiest way to find out for sure instead of speculation

    You probably won't be given an answer to this question, don't worry though, you seem to be doing fine.

    Maybe you were rejected because they already assumed they'd be your safety school? Just speculating here

    They don’t tend to do that
