    I am an international student applying to Leeds Mathematics BSc for year 14/15. Conditional was a 9 in math (I got a 10, which is the highest possible) and 90% at state exam, where I got 86%. So what are the chances, that I still get accepted? I reckon, that there are not so many places at this programme, because I got the highest conditional amongst other people from my country applying to Leeds. Thank you for replies (:

    It depends. I personally think Maths at Leeds is quite popular (I'm a Maths Joint Honours applicant). However, I think you've got a good chance of being accepted. When will you find out? Have you checked track?

    Thank you!! I hope that I will be able to take French as an extra course. Are you from the UK? I am hoping for Central Village, but chances are quite slim. What about you?

    Hey, I have the same problem
    I am an international student and I didn't reach the conditions of my offer (I got less of what was asked as a general average, but I got higher grades in the specific subjects)
    I have already called the university and sent them a letter to see if they still could secure me a place but haven't got an answer yet
    I'm going to call them again now but what are the odds they'll still accept me?

    1) What course have you applied for?
    2) Were you close?
    3) Have you checked your status on UCAS track or your e-mails?

    It was a state exam, which all of people in my country pass after 12 years in school.
