    I know it depends on what course, the amount of applicants etc, but does anybody know of anyone who, or have themselves, missed out on their offer and still got in?

    based on last year, QMUL was extremely lenient regarding their offers for applicants in good academic standing.

    What is it you're looking to do? I know for the English/Drama school they had a lot less people apply than they expected so might be easier to get in if you're doing those subjects. Also when I applied in 2009 they let me in with ABC even though I needed ABB (or maybe AAB?) but either way the interview counts for a lot, if you show you're interested and keen they're more likely to pick you.

    It depends on how many people apply (and get their grades) that year.

    Last year there was a drop in applications and so were more lenient. Normally I know my department tends to let in as many as they can, up to a point.

    If you miss the grades by only a few marks or 1 grade, you shouldn't really have much of a worry.
