Hi, I got 21 points from the IB, HL: Bio,Chem,Maths SL: Spanish,English,Economics

Following grades:
Bio: 4
Chem: 4
Maths: 3

Eco: 4
English: 4
Spanish: 2

I've not made any of my offers, since my predicted grades were like 36. haha.

I need some input as to what Universities would actually accept me through clearing. I would rather stay in London and study Biology/Chem/Finance/Business/Computing - at the moment most things, and quite frankly at any uni but London would be better....

Anyone got any ideas on how I can find information on these?

I have no intentions of retaking purely because I wont study again, I never do...

Thanks in advance.

Are you sure you wanna go through Clearing instead of a gap year? I mean obviously you had relatively high potential considering your predicted..

I don't think there are many, if any, UK unis that will accept you for those courses without a diploma. You could always ask though. Good luck

Most unis in clearing will ask for a pass. I suggest you take a gap year and straighten things out (retake, party, sleep, ...).

it's worth just retaking maths, spanish, and perhaps another HL subject in November while taking a gap year, IMO.

I agree. Plus actually having the Diploma, and not just certificates will go greatly in your favour.

Good luck with whatever you do.
