I’m planning on doing the summer exams now seeing how badly the autumn ones went for me, I’m not even surprised, I walked into the exam without even finishing the content or doing past papers 😓...

But now I’m terrified whether my referee gonna give me the predicted grades I need and whether uni gonna offer me a place this 😓😓

Awww don't worry! First of all, loads of people are in the same boat as you are and this year has just been a major **** up anyways. Also, your referee will most likely give you the predicted grades you need but worst-case scenario they don't give you the predicted grades you need, you can just smash the summer A levels and apply through clearing. xx

Lol same, I planned it as soon as I left the exam, I’m not even bothering to look my exam results I know I’ve failed because I didn’t answer a paper, luckily my school or ex school I guess is willing to provide me with predicted grades and a reference again, I’m sure if you ask yours can too?

I'm confused on how that works tho. Is it basically just like applying again in Year 13?

The predicted grades my referee said gonna give me is wayy below the uni entry requirements... he said he gonna test me after Christmas in all subjects and I need to score really high if he would consider predicting me AAA... 🥲

Idk how I’m suppose to jump multiple grades in a week for three subjects, maybe he gave me mission impossible so he can just predict me low like he wanted in the beginning... also not to mention how close to deadline it’s gonna be... I’m so stressed rn 🥲

But how can he predict you AAA if you didn't get close to those grades on the CAGs or the Autumn exams?

They said I’m comfortably at BBB right now and I can get AAA with just a little push but they don’t wanna predict me AAA in case exam gets cancelled and this yr predicted grades are too important... I don’t know what to make sense of that 🥲


Btw I haven’t got all my results back yet, I’m (including the people who did in the same centre) not gonna get results yet, they said they’ll try to give it to us in January. Apparently there was some technical problem, now I don’t know if I’ll get my results by 15th Jan.
But I know I didn’t get A’s in them for sure, I only got bio back and I got a C (3 marks away from B) on it. And my referee still hell bent on predicting me a B on bio too 🙂🔫

Same, I don't want to leave my grades like this but I don't want unis to have one more reason to not consider me because I'll be resitting...

Hi I don't know if you're going to see this but did unis penalise you for having a bad autumn and summer grade even though you were going to sit the next summer ones? I want to get into Glasgow/Edinburgh

Hi, I had a change of plans… I’ve decided to take this summer exams set instead. You should email admissions team for specific uni for specific course cause everyone’s different, I remember I emailed UCL and they said they don’t accept more than one retake for biomed, whereas King’s didn’t have a problem with it, so it all depends on the uni and course.

But didn't you say the autumn ones went really badly for you? So you did both no? And technically doesn't it not count as a resit but the first sitting as our actual a levels were cancelled so the summer ones would be counted as the first resit?
