    Hello :2euk48l:

    I applied to a biological program and got AAAAB, but the B was from biology . Now, because my case was a bit particular, I don't know whether it is better to send only the certificate or attach to it an e-mail explaining the situation.

    I studied at a bilingual school (czech/spanish) and the subjects from which I was doing the final high school exam were pretty much given (Czech, English, Spanish, and one taught in Spanish - for me it was chemistry). Nevertheless I wanted to study biology so I took it as a fifth subject.

    I can imagine, that hundreds of students are explaining their own "unique situation" so I'm not sure if it doesn't sound cheap but I know that with the one B from biology my chances of being admitted are veeery very low.

    I would appreciate if someone could share his experience or opinion. It's quite important to me.Thank yooooouuuuu!!!!

    If you think you have extenuating circumstances for your grade then it would be better for your UCAS referee to contact the university about your situation.
