    I got my results today and did worse than expected. I didn't meet my offer and I wanted to ask them if they'd still take me with my lower grades. I still have June to retake but it would be good to know anyway. How would I ask unis if they'd take me with my current grades?

    Thanks!

    Any advice at all?

    1. Find out University contact info
    2. Ring/email and ask them



    Nah I'm just kidding..
    Just email them with a couple of paragraphs explain your situation and ask whether or not they would lower the boundary for you. How lower are you talking though? If it's just one grade then they will usually accept you anyway if its a couple then its definitely worth sending an email. Don't stress out about it too much though you can only do your best.
