    Not getting my uni place, simple as that. Failing by a long way or being close really makes no difference, Cs won't be anymore use to me that Us. Missing it is missing it. There's a lot of pressure on me, my cousin went to Cambridge and everyone from my GP down wants to know my results ... same goes for a lot of people, I suppose.

    Might kill myself :dontknow: I haven't really decided yet.

    I know what your thinking, well I think I do, but when you see a AAB type of candidate ending up in a uni like East London Uni when she could potentially have gotten in Durham where you can meet like-minded people and study in a reputable uni. You do feel a bit sorry for them dont you?
    East london uni like TVU? Yes, I'd feel bad for them.

    However there are plenty of decent ex polys like Nottingham Trent and Anglia Ruskin - might be under her ability, but they're hardly terrible. That's what happens when you mess up exams. Getting an offer from somewhere doesn't entitle you a place there, it is a contract you are obliged to meet. If you mess up you can't complain when there are plenty of people who don't.

    I'd expect to be treated the same :dontknow:

    If you are serious then why do you even have an insurance choice? :confused:

    Why not withdraw now so you can go straight into clearing to save you bother on the day?

    Because i'm pretty confident that i will get my 300 ucas points for my firm , as I am predicted higher grades I got rejected from the uni that would have been my insurance.

    Not getting AAA. And I think it's going to happen..

    I REALLY DON'T want to do my insurance choice. And I'll be nearly 21 by the time I start university as it is, so I don't want to take a year out to resit - almost 22 starting univeristy sounds too old, and I'd be considered by my university a "mature student". It's such a scary term!

    Oh gawd.

    Worst case: UUUUU (A-levels) + UU (AEAs) + UU (STEP)
    Probable case: AAAAB (A-levels) + DU/MM (AEAs) + S2/11 (STEP)
    Best case: AAAAA (A-levels) + DD (AEAs) + SS (STEP)

    I'd be happy with anything better than or including AAABB/MU/12 (although the 2 in STEP would piss me off, because I need a double-1).

    If I don't get my grades, going to do art at St martin's or somewhere; it's so much better, they see your work and if they like it you get an offer which isn't dependent on some bureaucratic machine.
