You can, but they're not obligated to accept you and it's not even likely they will - they've had plenty of time to consider your application and unless there are mitigating factors it's unlikely they'll take you on the course. Just wait and see what happens, you may have done well.

thank you I understand that the chances are slim but I still feel like fighting for it, but I am not sure what I should say when I call them tho

Your best bet would be to have a look in clearing to see if they have any other courses you are interested in that you meet the requirements for. Try joint honours and so on!

If they've decided to reject you then unfortunately it's unlikely they'll go back on this decision on results day- regardless of your personal circumstances.

Hi,

It's very unlikely you will get your place back if you have been declined, and you can't get a place in Clearing if you have been rejected, but you never know what will happen and mistakes can be made so there are a few options. Double check to see if your course is in clearing, then if your grades match to what they are looking for in Clearing then something might have gone wrong. If it's not in Clearing, it means that it's full.

If the course is in Clearing and your grade matches, it may be worth a call to ask what's going on - just say you were a previous applicant and you noticed the course in Clearing. Then you can ask what happened and why you were rejected if you met the grades in Clearing

Keep your hopes up and keep calm - you never know what will happen tomorrow and I wish you the best of luck.

Have you just had your results and have you been rejected. It is possible even 2 grades below your university might accept you. What university and course is it. What grades did they expect and you get. Sometimes universities accept applicants with 2 grades lower. If they dont you are not getting in so dont waste a call.

Just so you know, last year I got accepted into my Insurance with 2 grades lower than my offer, so it can happen!

However if you are rejected in the morning, just calling and begging might not work, however you can try and get yourself a place through Clearing. You should also be prepared to try other universities though as it's not guaranteed that they'll give you a place as you've missed your offer. Good luck whatever happens
