    No, not with Oxbridge. Any other universities yes, however Oxford are very rigid on requirements.

    Are you international as in paying international fees? If so, it might be possible. However, in general I think Oxford would want to avoid doing this if at all possible, so if you think you're likely to miss your grades, I'd think carefully about your insurance choice.

    Why do you think you might miss a grade? If extenuating circumstances are involved, they might be more sympathetic.

    If that's true, why do both universities over-offer in the full knowledge that some people will miss their requirements???
