I missed my IB points offer by 2 for UCL, have telephoned twice last month to try to initiate a conversion but was told to call back on A level results day.Will I get an opportunity to plead my case tomorrow or will the decision already have been made?

It's likely a decision will be made once the uni have A-level results.

When you say plead your case, do you mean you have extenuating circumstances that the uni aren't aware of?

Ucl will have made a decision. There is nothing you can do to change their minds. Track will show tomorrow whether they have accepted you or not. If you get rejected move on. No kind of pleading will change their mind unless there are significant extenuating circumstances. Otherwise you are wasting your and the Universities time at the busiest time of year.

Thanks for getting back to me. There are no extenuating circumstances. I just wanted to be prepared if a discussion was expected by the admissions officer.

It's possible- if you're not given a decision on results day you can call up and tell them how much you love the uni and the course and ask them when they will make a decision by (don't let them keep you hanging too long).

However, I'd expect them to make a decision by 8am tomorrow.
