Lets say a UCAS application was made to a university for 2012 entry with an indicative requirement for 36 IB points, with a requirement for 6 in HL chemistry, and probably 6,6,6 for all 3 HL subjects.
IB results in this case are available on January 6th 2012 and will be sent directly to UCAS.
Lets say that the university has not made an offer at this point, and the actual result achieved is a 5 in Chemistry or a 5 in one of the other HL subjects.
The university could do two things, I think: reject the application immediately (without making an offer) or make an offer which they know the candidate hasn't made, and wait until the A level results in August to see if they are prepared to compromise and accept the candidate.
However, there is the option of IB resits in May. If the candidate had already been rejected, but had then achieved the desired results, say, by getting the 6 in Chemistry, could they re-apply for the same course?
Obviously this would be after the 15th January deadline. The candidate is an international student.
