If I am not able to meet the offer?


kez86

Hi ,
I have got offers from KCL , UCL and SOAS for an LLM conditional upon me obtaining a 2.1 in my LLB due for compleltion in June. However I have strong reason to believe now that I will narrowly miss the award of a 2.1 degree and will instead graduate with a high 2.2. Does anyone know if these schools accept candidates who narrowly miss their offers ?? Or is there an absolute bar on 2.2 degrees ??
Thanks.

I am very interested in hearing the response as well. I may be in the same situation, and that may just, well, be tragic.

Hi

SOAS might, at a pinch, accept you but this would depend a lot on your transcript and English if applicable. It would also depend on how well subscribed the programme is. I think for KCL and UCL the answer would be no.

Not too late to try other universities with less stringent entry criteria though. There will always be a place somewhere!

I agree with TallTrees. SOAS might accept it but probably not UCL and KCL.

Both KCL and UCL sometimes accept candidates with 2:2 honours, provided however, that they have outstanding recommendations. It is hard to say that you have no chances upfrond. You should try anyway.

The answer to your question is "that depends..." I don't think that you will find better answer on this board.

Agreed. If you have more than one offer, hopefully you have not rejected all except the one you were expecting to take up when it was made unconditional.

But, even if that is the case, you absolutely should contact the admissions offices by phone. Remember that if you have communicated your intention to accept a university's offer, they will be expecting you to take your place. Hopefully, whoever you speak with will see that missing the condition is mostly a technicality or the result of having to round the .4" down rather than the ".6" up. Try it.
