    Slightly OT but wouldn't your extenuating circumstances have been taken in to consideration already (and factored in to exams, grades etc) so why should they be 'double counted' in your application?

    I'm afraid I don't have any sympathy for you, you lied to make your application better than it really is. You've stuck 2 fingers up to everyone who got 200-300 UCAS points. Hopefully lesson learnt and you won't do it again. Did you lie on all your applications or just this one?
    Only did one

    Don't say anything to them about it until they mention it

    You should have been honest with them by saying why you were unable to achieve your true potential in your A-Level studies.

    Honesty gets you far.
