Rigidity in offers - UCL,Kings


Proxenus

Hello guys I have a conditional offer from UCL and King's for their general LLM program - they ask for a 65% and was wondering what happens if I narrowly miss it.

Is there a chance for me to enter with a 64% (worst possibility being maybe 63%)

I would appreciate your input.

That's an easy one:

Your condition is 65% or above.

If you get a 64% or, even worse, a 63%, it means you will not meet your condition.

If you fail to meet your condition, however, you won't be allowed to enter the course.

That's why they call it a conditional offer.

Do you mean to say that UCL and Kings typically never relax their offers? Or just that in general, once you fail to meet a condition, you won't be admitted to a course?

I have no experience with the former, but as regards the latter, I'm pretty sure that's untrue. I definitely know of a few people who had conditional offers for the Oxford BCL, missed it, but were admitted anyway. The universities have some discretion to relax conditions.

You probably have no idea what you are talking about...

Universities are not that rigid with their offers. I know a number of people admitted in UCL/LSE/King's who did not meet their original offer but were still admitted. Universities make it clear that you can still be admitted if you don't meet the condition, you should notify them of that and they will re-consider the situation and you will most probably get in. Unless eg they asked for a 65 and you ended up with a 55, in such a situation I guess would be unlikely to get in.
