You can try, but they're very unlikely to accept you. They've already said they don't want you.

Of course. you could have well exceeded your predictions, or you could choose a less competitive course, or a course in a different dept., or just a course that they are struggling to fill.

For example you might not be successful for Pharmacy, but reapply for a course with lower entry requirements (potentially biomed or a pure science). Or you could not get into a business school for international business + a language, but still get in to do a language course (maybe even taking outside options in business).
Or with joint honours - business & economics could be in a business school, but history and economics in a different dept with different entry requirements.

Uni's like applicants who have a preference for them as a uni - it shows you'll turn up and want to stay. I disagree with the other guy who says they dont want you - its not like they've taken a look at your PS and thought you're not right for them - it's almost certainly a grade profile for that course.

That said it does feel like a bit of a long shot. so have other options you're happy with - you dont want to put all your eggs into one basket.

Hey there,

As Minty has said. There are always other options to explore!

My colleague Heather replied to you in the applicants thread too. Have a look at the links she provided. They have plenty of information.

Just try to relax and keep an open mind at this stage!

All the best,

David
