    What course are you planning to study? There are always exceptions for people that don't achieve entry requirements.
    Contacting admissions would be the best option for you or apply under mitigating circumstances.

    Contact them and ask about the course intake see how many spaces there are left and if there are a lot then you might be able to get in with lower grades.

    hi, thanks for replying!

    by spaces left do you mean after results day? beacuse they narrowed down the applicants in the 1st place so i think they gave offers to how many people they need

    Yeah, some courses are heavily subscribed so the competition is more fierce whilst other courses have far less people applying. It would be best to contact them to discuss your options. If that doesn't work out then you can always look at foundation courses at your preferred university.

    I hope you succeed and get the grades, but don't let it discourage you when you don't because it isn't the end of the world.

    I'm in the same boat as you, only with Politics.

    The first thing I did was contact the admissions tutor of your course and ask, not about this year, but last year's intake. Were they able to take some dropped-grade candidates for your course? They do not have, and are not at liberty to tell, anything about this year's process until results day.

    Chances are, if your course does normally, that hope is not yet lost!

    Best of luck!
