    Hello everyone, I'm currently studying A2 now and I just came to UK 3 years ago, I'm originally from Hong Kong therefore English Language is not my mother language. However I am so desperate want to go to University of Essex and I am lucky got an interview opportunity with them in March, though their requirement is fairly high for me, they want ABB-BBB. Sadly I didn't get a good grades from AS I got A, E and a D but I'm going to resit the subjects and hopefully can get a higher grade this year. Would they lower a bit my offer consider my situation? I know that's not an excuse but everything is quite difficult to me along with the pressure that all my friends are going to apply some high ranking university and I don't wanna let them know I got a bad results and I can only go for some lower ranking one. I'm appreciate anyone who can give me some suggestion or advice.

    No, you can't negotiate. You're either good enough to go there or you're not. They won't care if you're "desperate to go there".

    No. Only hard work and dedication brings results. Studying isn't easy and it may sound like you need some more preparation for that. Good luck though I'm sure you will get there in the end.

    Why would they change the requirements for you? There are thousands of applicants, and what's your problem with lower ranked Universities? You really shouldn't be thinking about your friends so much, and besides, I think you need to improve your Egnlish as well.
