missing offer grades for UCL Watch
do you know anyone who missed thier grades for UCL and didnt get in or who got in?
Blame it on your female mind.
I missed my offer AAA with AABB first time round and didn't get let in. That said, a friend of mine missed her grades for English, got rejected, and then accepted via phonecall a few weeks later.
So did you just reapply the next year while re-taking one of your B grades? See, I have an AAA offer from UCL for English this year but have a strong feeling that I also got AABB... But I was under the impression UCL don't really like people applying when they are re-taking..? Also did you get a teacher to phone UCL on your behalf after you had spoken to them? I heard that unis can often be persuaded if a teacher believes in you enough to call personally.. Sorry for being so inquisitive!
As for the having someone ring UCL up, no I didn't. I can't imagine it would have been anything more than a waste of breath as when I rang admissions they told me that the course was oversubscribed - i.e. - more people than they expected achieved their offers. No department wants that.
The retake thing is not true, I did retakes this year, albeit one subject being because edexcel mixed my french oral and coursework up with someone else so despite being fluent in french I ended up with a U overall despite having an A for AS with nearly full marks. Obviously I didn't get into uni last year and edexcel were complete arses about it and said the only thing I could do was retake those modules and reapply this year with mitigating circumstances which is what I did, and UCL still gave me a place.
predicted AAA for chem, bio and physics
concerned about maths though
i took the A level a year early (bad idea) and need to resit one module to get a B.. i was two marks off
will it matter if i've done the A level over three years?
