Missing my IB HL subjects offer for Cambridge law

Hi everyone!

I am an international (overseas) students holding an offer for studying law at Cambridge University, starting in October 2023. My conditional offer stated that I needed to achieve the overall score of 42 points with 7,7,6 on my higher level subjects. While I scored 42 points in total, I got 7 from higher level English B, and 6 from higher level History and Economics, resulting in 7,6,6 instead of 7,7,6 on my HL examinations. I am missing 3 marks to 7 from history and 5 marks from economics. The Admissions Office told me that I need to wait until the release of A-levels results on the 17th of August. However, I am very stressed and I am wondering whether I have any chances of getting accepted into Cambridge law? Is it true that not achieving the required grades in the HL subjects is a disqualifying factor? And does it matter that I am an international students who took IB? I would be deeply grateful for any advice, and your opinion regarding my chances of getting accepted despite missing one of the requirements stated by my offer!

Was it possible to get a remark to bring one of them up to a 7? Otherwise just gotta wait and see as they can't make a decision until they know how all offer-holders have done (and so they know if they have any flexibility on spaces).
