    Not necessarily. The requirements for second-year entry tend to be rather higher. For example, my course required BBBB at Higher for 1st year entry, but AAB at Advanced Higher for 2nd.

    (Anecdotally, my two offer 'mails' in the Euclid system said that if I changed my mind and wished second year entry having applied only for normal entry, to speak to my tutor in the first week of term - oddly, in the same letter as they offered me a chance to defer the offer since I'll be fractionally younger than 18 at point of entry!)
    My Euclid offer mail said the same thing. However, I would like a confirmation that I can begin my studies from the second year before I actually come there. I suppose I'll just email admissions. Thanks for your replies

    According to that table, the percentage for me seems more like 20%, the newest one is still at 11.6% though. Hu-bloody-rah.

    I take it this includes all offers made, not the ones accepted?

    When should admissions begin again? Mid-January?

    I know this is so easy to say in retrospect but please don't worry about ucas and uni stuff. Concentrate on exams as you've done everything you can for ucas now, and you need to get the grades for whatever your uni's offer you... you've done the uni part, they will make their decisions whatever but you can still change and have control over what grades you get and whether you make your offers. Whatever will happen will happen, and even if things dont go to plan with ucas, whereever you go for university you will probably end up loving. In retrospect I probably would only have applied to 2 of the universities I applied to- Edinburgh and Glasgow, but even if I'd have gone elsewhere I would have probably have still loved it. When you finally get to uni, and get into the course you realise how silly you were for worrying so much about whether X accommodation was better than Y or whether this uni was better than that uni. It all becomes arbitary in the end, and then when you get near to graduating you just think god I'd love to be 17 and doing it all again!
