    i have missed my firm for like 4-5 points (getting remark so not sure yet)..
    i noe i will not be offered a place for my normal applied course..
    but do u think they will offer me another course with lower points needed?
    do i have to send an e-mail to the uni myself to ask (before they update my track on ucas) or will they do tht themselves when i find out my sucky results...
    please help..i really have no where to go now...i did soooooo BAD!!!

    Did you have an insurance uni???

    If not, depending on how many applicants hit the grades, you may or may not get the place.

    If you don't you go to clearing. where the unis with places decide

    I think it depends on how people do in their A-Levels, so if you do ask you'll probably have to wait until the 20th August before finding out ..

    Just fish around for yourself and be creative. Some unis offer foundation courses, look around for the entry requirements and phone them up if you have to. Then ask them if that course normally go in clearing. On A levels results day wake up bright and early, get a The Independent (if you live in UK) and you'll fin d a full lsit of clearing places. try to match the courses you have found before and call up. In the meantime sort out retakes if you have to.

    My offer is AAA to read law at kings, i dont think im going to get this! I think I will get AABB/ABBB, is there any chance they will let me in? Does anyone know of anyone who got into kings to do law who missed there offer? And what should I say on the phone? And if we re-sit next year and then re-apply we will be up against students with the A*, can we do the new style a-level in a year next year thereby giving us the opportunity to apply next year with an A*. Many questions I know!!
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
