So I do IAL and got 2/3 of my results yesterday under the Cambridge exam board. My firm offer is AAB with A in EPQ for Leeds and I got a B in a subject I was more confident in and now I am worried I might get another B for my result that comes out tomorrow under Edexcel IAL. The B that I got was just 2 marks off an A though, I'm not sure if Leeds would still consider me if I got another B but was 2 marks off an A so it was a near miss. Also, from what I was graded by my teacher, I should be (hopefully) be getting an A* in my EPQ. I'm just not sure whether they would consider me if I got ABB with A* in EPQ especially for my course, Law. But I am an international student? Maybe there is some leniency considering my fee status? Helppp

Talk to Leeds. They may have already accepted you. or may say wait till tomorrow.
Ask them what happens if they reject you and you then get a remark that results in you meeting the offer. You will then know if it will still be open and if so go for the remark. I would most likely go for the remark anyway as chances of going down are much less than going up or staying the same. It is just a small gamble. The * in the EPQ is better , but as an EPQ is worth an AS, then it isnt as much as a full grade for A level. It is something though. GL,
