    Me again!

    I've applied for Royal Holloway to study Ancient and Medieval History for the coming September with the offer of ABB. However, my exams went...well, let's just say that Napoleon's Russia campaign was more successful...
    Originally, I was predicted:
    • A* - History
    • A - Geography
    • B - Maths

    I had a huge deal of family issues this year which meant that by June, I was simply exhausted - 6 months of pre-dawn starts and midnight bedtimes caught up at the wrong time!
    My school have been very helpful and has alerted the university to the last academic year and have sent off more stuff to help my application, but I'm guessing at ABD/E for my grades on a good day.
    Is there any real prospect of me getting into RHUL?

    Hi there,

    I'm afraid we won't be able to tell you a definitive answer to this until results day. It is great to hear your school has been so supportive; if they have alerted us to your situation then this can be taken into account when confirming offers.

    Generally, if an offer holder narrowly misses a grade and there is still space on a course, then we may be able to maintain their offer.

    We can also only go by your official grades, so my advice is to not worry and try not to second-guess your grades either. Both you and the university won't know the outcome of any of our conditional offer holders until results day and places are confirmed.

    I know it is easier said than done, but try to enjoy your break and get some well-deserved rest after all of your hard work!

    Best,

    Emily
