So competative though, so it's understandable... congratulations both on your offers.

Ive got offers from Manchester and Nottingham but everyone says UCL is the best. DO you think theres any way I can ask them to reconsider their offer because it would seem a bit rude if I rang them up in august with 4 x A's and they rejected me coz i didnt get 5?!

Well, ask Pencil Queen on this one as the women is an absolute Queen of these kinda dilemmas. Though by Law if you were to phone them and ask why your offer is strict, I don't think they can retract your offer, only change it for the better.

Let Pencil Queen okay this before you start yelling at the Law Admissions Tutor.

Im not going to whinge to the admissions tutor as they may well have decided to make the offer for good reasons but it just seems a bit harsh... i just wanted to be sure that they havent made a mistake. I can understand that they dont want me to do nothing in my last year but three more A's!!!!

I got rejected by oxford and that was my first choice but UCL is meant to be really really good as its in centre of London etc. Obviously Cambridge for most would be their first choice but I think its still worth going at least to find out what youd be missing.
