With the great shambles of the A-Level results this year, I got lowered by 2 grades from my original Centre Assessed Grades of ABB, so I ended up receiving BBC. As a result, I got rejected from my firm choice for Psychology.

Now as CAGs have been given to every student, I have tried calling my firm choice university to apply back into 2020 study, however they said they are only accepting those with AAB. This has been distressing, as universities were told to be flexible with the grades of those who have originally applied - I am only one grade short. I have tried reasoning by saying that people will have left clearing spaces to go to their original university choices, but they will not budge.

Thankfully, I have been accepted by my insurance university, which I'm very glad about, but I'm still quite determined to try to get back into my firm choice university. My firm choice uni have offered me a deferred place, but this makes things difficult for the year below and I am pretty sure I want to start studying in 2020. Is it possible to go to my insurance choice university for a year, and then move to my firm choice university in 2nd year?

transfers can be possible but they're tricky so I wouldn't rely on it.

Which Uni?
So have your first choice now promised you a deferred place with your ABB CAG (even though your offer was AAB)? If so that is good going to get them to agree to do that, as I assumed that they were now going to be really strict, because of too many people now meeting the offer by using their CAGS.

Loughborough Uni was my firm, and UEA is my insurance. The thing is, I'm hellbent on starting university this year, because my home environment isn't the best, haha. So starting in 2021 isn't a choice for me.
