    Guys would they accept you if your offer was AAA but you got A*A*B or A*AB?
    I applied for history.
    Your application will be reconsidered. But it's highly unlikely.

    The reconsider part is in your offer pack.
    I do know one person who marginally missed her offer (well, when I say I know, I meant a friend of a friend) and still got in, her conditions were AAA, and she got AAB. But maybe she was really lucky.
    It's unlikely because some programmes are over subscribed (as lse keeps reminding us that), if the number of those who met their conditions is enough, they will not be bothered to look at those who missed. It depends really, if there are spaces left then of course, they will see how many UMS marks did you miss your offer by, read your PS again, etc in order to make a final decision

    tnks bro. It's just that I had a really bad teacher this year and I can't trust that the mark I got in the coursework will stay. I got 40/50 but I think it will be downgraded. It happened last year with english lit., he gave me an A but it was downgraded to a C and I ended with a B (got an A in the exam). Do you think it is sensible to inform the university about this? That I didnt receive much help with the coursework.
    BTW, I am applying for history and I dont think it is very over subscribed.

    Sexist much ) I'm a girl. Anyway, I feel you. My teacher hasn't been helpful at all and I basically had to do all the work on my own. If I end up having bad grades, its their fault (I will hunt them down, seriously)
    You will have to understand that there is nothing the university can do about this. Maybe you should ask your college to write some kind of circumstantial letter to inform the university. But then again, college might feel reluctant to do this (because, shockingly, they don't want to take the blame)
    Nonetheless, just ask them beforehand.

    Ok tnks. The university can at least consider it though. If i get 90 in the exam and 60 in the coursework then theyll know why. I dont think the college will send that letter though. But thank you anyways and sorry about calling you bro :-)

    I know someone who last year got in for economics and accounting and he missed his offer and got a B in one of his 3 subjects... yet they let him in, it really depends.
    My offer is also AAA but economics is so damn hard, I really hope they accept A*, A*, B

    I have the same problem but no one seems to be able to answer. But I can tell if you get A*AB you do stand a chance. My offer is AAA and my tutor said if you get A*A*B they will most likely take you. Also depends on how many people met their offers and how many firmed LSE, obviously. Also if you are home or overseas student.
