At 3 grades below their offer the application for IR would really be pushing it and realistically you've very little chance of being successful.

They seem to have more flexibility with Korean, (offers AAB - ABB), but I suspect the lower end of that is for contextual applicants.

In either case these would probably be your most aspirational choices and I'd prepare yourself for two rejections.

Hey! I'm a SOAS digital ambassador, currently in my third year of Chinese and IR. I wouldn't give up hope yet! My course had a standard offer of AAB but I got an unconditional (SOAS likes to give them out, or at least they did in my year). Plus, a lot of people I know didn't quite make the offer but still got in. Keep working hard!!

Thank you so much! My predicted grades got changed to ABB last minute so fingers crossed I get an offer!

Do you mind if I asked you some questions about your courses?
