    Hello
    I know that I'm going to ask you really stupid questions but thats my first year and I'm a bit worried about whats going to happend....
    My firm is City
    My insurance is Westminster
    Both with conditional offers
    City wants from me to pass IELTS with overall 6.5 and not less than 6.0 on every module.
    Westminster wants from me 6.5 overall and not less than 5.5 on every module.
    I took IELTS twice :
    1)overall 6.5 L:7 R:6 W:5.5 S:6.5
    2)overall 6.5 L:7.5 R:6.5 W:5.5 S:6.5
    I didnt improve my writting and im angry to myself now
    I already sent my results to the unies and westminster will make my offer unconditional.But im worried about city
    I received email which says:The offer conditions require you to obtain 6.5 overall with no elss than 6.0 in any sub test. Your Writing sub test is below this so you still need to take the IELTS again in order to satisfy that part of the offer conditions.

    Is there any chance they to accept me in the uni with 5.5 writting,after this email?Because i know about students who have been accepted and didnt meet the conditions.
    And when i will know if they accepting or rejecting me ? When i will know in which uni im going?
    Aaand when i was applying for Student Finance I wrote City as my uni.If they dont accept me there is it too late to call the SF in august to inform them about the changes.
    I applied btw in 4th april for finance and i still havent receive answer from them ://

    If you don't meet City's conditions, then they probably won't accept you. You have had two attempts already and if City were happy with your marks they could have accepted you already. Have City given you a date by which you must satisfy their IELTS conditions?

    I believe there won't be much of a problem with finance in that you just change your place of study from City to Westminster.

    I suspect that if you don't satisfy City's conditions they won't accept you.

    Agreed, unless City are desperately short of applicants. I would advise you to have another attempt.

    They told you they weren't accepting you in their email "The offer conditions require you to obtain 6.5 overall with no elss than 6.0 in any sub test. Your Writing sub test is below this so you still need to take the IELTS again in order to satisfy that part of the offer conditions."

    You then said you had to do that by 7th August.

    So I imagine they will notify you formally some time after that date.

    Why don't you want to take the IELTS again? Why do you think you can cope with a degree taught and assessed in English if you can't satisfy a minimum English language requirement?

    I hope i will have some luck and will be accepted....

    Is it okay if i ring SFE in august or if i sent them a form for changing my uni? I mean its not going to be too late?

    It's not too late. Many people change on results day.

    By the way, it is "have some luck" not "have a luck". And to be honest it is extremely unlikely.

    Sometimes you have to sacrifice the present for the future. I would be surprised if you couldn't find a couple of hours a day to practise.
