To be honest, your grades are probably more important than your personal statement. Of course having a great personal statement will help, but if you are under the grade requirements, it's not at all certain that you would get an offer. It also depends on how competitive the course is. Some places have crazy ratios of 10:1 in which case, probably not, but if it is more like 1:2, you could have a chance. Also if your reference is good that will help.

In america they have more of a leniency to this sort of thing but in the UK not as much. Then again worldwide your grades do matter especially to top unis. However hearing you're only one grade below isn't that bad and many people apply to unis who have requirements of one grade above. I recommend you do apply to them but also choose some backups!

If your grades are that rough you wont get beyond first-check - ie.they'll reject you long before they look at your PS.
