    I think I have probably missed the offer(A,A,A,in Maths, FM, Physics). I did quite bad in Fm and it might only be marked B:o: Does anyone know the ICL admission policy that whether they accept near miss student like me?

    Apparently if you get a B, you may need a Merit in STEP.
    Email them to find out more.

    EDIT: Hold on, do you need As in every module in Maths and Further Maths, without resits. If not, and you only get a B in FM, then I would say you have a lower chance of getting in compared to a UK student who gets an A in FM but a B in a module (the UK offer is AAA, including Maths and FM with As in every Maths and Further Maths module without resits).

    Probably not.

    It would be more likely if you got a B in your third subject (i.e. not Maths/Further Maths).

    Edit: What I mean is that you're more likely to get in with a B in Physics than a B in Further Maths.
    Since you're doing Maths, Physics A Level isn't that important.

    Also, good luck - I'll see you there in October if I get my A in Physics :p:

    Given the amount of applicants, I would say that the chance of admitting a near miss student is very small! You should email the department immediately for advice.

    I have also thought about the modulus thing, but I can tell you getting an "A" in the CIE FM tests is DAMM HARD!!!!!(Espesically this year, as I have never missed A in any mock tests) Anyway, I suspect I will be on the upper edge of B even if I missed A, and does it help?

    Oh, ****! Why do so many people apply to Imperial? :mob: As oversea students, we almost have no choice towards warwick(although I personally prefer there) considering how tremendous influnce the Imperial brand name has on our parents and domestic employers, but if I was an UK students, I will definately put Warwick as my first choice

    I've heard they do in fact admit a fair few "near miss" students given that they don't give offers to that many people so I think you should be fine.

    And yes, you should have chosen Warwick as your first choice!

    You are a nice people
    But do you think I should e-mail them, telling I probably have missed the offer and see what else I can do to make it up?

    I'm in the same situation, sort of.
    From what I read this year they won't be so lenient because the college may pay a fine for over recruiting. This is what I read down at timesonline.. :/ I hope not, tho!

    None...Will they admit me because of my identity as an international student where they can get extra budget from?
