    :laugh: No i haven't put that info in my profile (haven't had the time to fill that stuff in) and no not Imperial. I got rejected due to a COMPLETELY CRAPPY BMAT. Seriously, it was bad! :sad:

    :p:

    They are my insurance though, but for Biochemistry.

    Yeah, but God willing in Sept, I'll be at Barts (and the London) SMD. I get to stay in London! :woo:

    Or elated when you find out you have got them.



    Although, don't mistake me for an optimist. I am pretty sure I haven't got the grades I need - but I am just saying there is not much reason to WORRY about it, yet, per sé.
    Nah, I'm say 95% certain I've not got them. I know I've missed an A in FM and I'm on the whole pretty sure I've just missed Physics by like 2 marks. I know I can't change the results obviously but I'm just not looking forward to finding out because as long as I don't know I can still do what I want to do with regards to unis and careers and stuff.

    Mine too.

    I think I will get AAB but the subject I think I'll get a B in, my insurance has specified that they want an A in it.

    Don't know what I'm gonna do. :cry:

    I'm going to be really annoying and say there's a 5% chance you've actually done got them. A levels are sometime s a fluke in the sense that you can be 100% sure you've got a U/D and yet come out with full marks for some reason :confused: but it's best to wait till results day and not panic or worry about it.

    Besides assuming you have actually missed Physics by 2 marks, you can always ask for a remark.

    But you're right about ignorance being bliss.

    As of now, no university has A*A*A as a requirement. For next year the highest requirement known is A*AA
    I said next year and for 2010

    Imperial College London
    Mathematics and Computer Science
    A*A*A

    Churchill College, Cambridge
    Law
    A*A*AA

    None of your links actually work :confused:

    Anyway it is a well known fact that Churhill college have particularly stringent requirements for law but they usually expect exceptional GCSE grades not A*A*AA at A levels, at least not yet.

    The standard Cambridge offer for law is A*AA for 2010 entry

    If you're thinking about it so much, you're probably a very conscientious person and put all the effort you could into the exams. Therefore, you have little to worry about and have given yourself the best chance to achieve grades you're clearly capable of, as you got the offers in the first place. :yes:

    Well, even if you have missed physics by 2 marks that's not necessarily the end of the world. Universities can be quite lenient with such narrow misses, you know. Although that depends, of course, on the popularity of the course. My cousin got into Oxford after missing one of his As by a few marks.

    Thanks, I hope you're right. I honestly don't think I could have tried harder - I guess it's just that constant worry that it wasn't enough.

    I actually don't think I did enough. For some of my exams, i think I peaked way too early (~ during the 2nd week of May), so I don't think I did as well as I could have for the actual exams in June. I still hope its enough, but its such a shame.

    I don't think I should have started revising so early on. But oh well, its done now. :sigh:

    Find Churchill's info here
    And I'll add to that with a quote.
    We ordinarily favour students completing 4 A-levels and normally attach a condition of A*A*AA to any offer of admission in Law
    Given though, Churchill do often give brilliantly hard offers.

    Oh right. Well as long as there's proof.

    Although I did already state that Churchill is known for it's particularly stringent requirements for law.

    I need AAA in Economics, Mathematics and French, not to make an offer (I knew I was taking a gap year and didn't apply), but because I'm applying for PPe at 5 top Unis (inc. Oxford obviously) and to the US. Nothing else will do. I will gutted if I don't get AAA, and any lower than AAB I'll probably cry. In fact I'll probably still cry with AAB.

    This happened with me for Maths too. I just got rustier and rustier with C4 after school ended and study break began, when I probably could've gotten...at least a B if I had done the exam earlier.

    I'm expecting a U now :p:
