    Not sure whether quoting within a spoiler works.


    Seriously though, does any of the advice on here so far help you in your position?
    Can you do anything similar?

    i contacted via email, they didnt pick up,

    The admissions tutor replied very quickly saying the news is not positive, if u missed ur offer by one point we could reconsider, but please do remark ur papers, and then if you meet the requirements, i will reconsider etc...

    also my insurance is edinburgh with 34 and 555 HL,
    but I got 664 HL,

    DO you think i have a chance with ucl? or even edinburgh?

    Plus if ur an international student would it help?
    Thanks for the comments tho
    If your spelling and grammar in that email was as bad as it is here, I'm not surprised!

    Definitely get your papers remarked anyway, and then beg on the phone. It'll probably do no harm is you try to sound as devastated as it is possible to sound, too. Good luck, OP!

    I'm not sure what else you could do... if anything. I've never been in that situation, as A-level results aren't out yet! Just make you you put yourself forward in the best way possible, sound passionate on the phone, and have a good reason for why you missed the grade!

    Sounds passionate, rational and a bit surprised the grades were missed is better than sounding needy, devastated and desperate.

    Yes, that's what I should have said and is indeed more aligned with my thoughts.

    thanks people, although the ucl admissions tutor said, u wont be able to come unless you get some papers remarked,

    I should really call him possibly on monday, hope for minimal chances,

    but cheers people
    Have you contacted your teachers to get your papers remarked? If not, do that.
    If you don't want to remark your papers then you need to cross your fingers your insurance decides to take you. Good luck!
