If applicants have failed to reach the standard of their conditions they should still send the official proof of the results It may still be possible to confirm the offer – the results will be sent with application file to the selector and a final decision will be made. As soon as we are notified of the decision university will contact them If applicants have failed to attain the required language score by a large margin, they may arrange to re-take the test as long as they can submit the required score before the registration period begins. If the selector has examined the degree results and their offer has not been confirmed, this decision is final - no appeal is possible. The academic demands of the course are stringent and competition is high – each year more offers are made than there are places available to allow for this situation. If the offer has been non-confirmed on the basis of the language test score they may arrange to re-take the test
