    Hi all, I was just wondering what people's grades (GCSE & A Level Predictions) are. I am trying to work out if the universities are interviewing those with higher grades first or not. Also please state which universities have given you the interview or offer.

    Many Thanks.

    i'll make it easier for you and tell you for a fact that uni's do not go by grades when they give their interviews out, they dont give to those with the highest grades first then work their way down :p:

    most teachers have experience though so their judgement should be trusted to some extent anyway.

    hence most reason being that they have read a few before so can tell the better ones apart.

    You'd think that would be the the case...

    well obviously there will be the odd few cases where it won't be like that but you have to remember that the schools want you to get into further education, it will look bad on them if you don't so they will try the best they can to get you through...

    i agree ^

    schools will try to help u as much as possible. i do however think that sometimes in schools like mine (Private) that they tend to overlook some weaker students (i.e who dont have >7A*s at gcse and 4 As at AS) and support the "brighter" ones. but even though my results werent all A*s they did help and support me through my application perhaps to get more people coming into the school.

    i dunno

    but then again my cousin got into oxford and he is from a state school and his school really really supported him 100%

    I think it's safe to say my school hasn't helped at all with my application, and it's not because of a lack of trying on my behalf. I think the best comment I got from them regarding my PS was 'I like this part' or 'good'.

    But it's all good, I managed to get someone on TSR to have a look at before I sent it off :yep: I guess this kinda balances it out with the people who get more advice from public/better sector schools.
