As the title above states, I reallllyyy want to do ESPS. In fact, the only other course that rivals my desire to take it is PPE. I took my IB Diploma last year and got the following score:
English A1 HL: 5
History HL: 7
Economics HL: 7
French Ab Initio SL: 6
Biology SL: 7
Maths SL: 7
Now, if I were to do ESPS I'd naturally choose French as my second language, but there's a problem: The entry requirements state that I need to have taken the second language at the 'B' level, rather than the 'Ab Initio' one (just one level lower) and every time I see that I feel like banging my head against a wall .
I really want to know whether I won't even be considered as a potential applicant with this score, and whether there's a way I can prove to UCL that I can take on ESPS. I like learning languages and don't see myself having much difficulty with French.
I already emailed Tessa Robinson, Admissions Officer of UCL ESPS and now have to wait for her reply. But will it take a long time considering that:
a) It's the holidays
b) There's probably a huge list of people wanting to talk to her as well
I'd bear the cost and am willing to call her from here, Singapore, but I don't have easy access to the phones on weekdays due to my ongoing conscription and am still worried that she wouldn't be in during the holidays.
Can any kind souls in this forum help me please? This is really knawing at me.

Has yours come through yet?
