众所周知，那些排名比较靠前的英国大学一向很傲娇，语言，成绩，学术背景什么的要求很严格：你的均分有84.5，距离那些牛校的要求85只差那么一点点；IELTS总成绩够了，单项就少了那么0.5分，遇见这种尴尬的情况，学校也会毫不留情地给你发conditional offer甚至是拒信，那么，拿到conditional offer或拒信的小伙伴，该怎么跟学校argue？
首先，要搞清楚自己为什么会收到conoffer or rejection，最常见的conditional offer有两种：语言和成绩
虽然你的academic conditions够了，但语言成绩还没有出来，或者你的语言成绩分数没有达到要求，那么学校可能会给你发con offer，你可以argue的理由：
I felt so happy when I got the offer of computer science in Faculty of Engineering yesterday. My name is XX,and my application number is XX. It's a great honour for me to get a chance to study in the XX.
Few months ago, I promised you that I could get 7 and took the exam in Jan. A few days before our Chinese New year, everyone went back home to enjoy their family reunion time except me. To pursuit and realize my dream and honor my promise, I had to study in the cold and empty classroom day after day without anyone. So many tears and the sweat on my jack that I choose never looking back, I had to put up with low temperature and lonely atmosphere and I missed my parents, who had already prepared great dinners in the warm house( but far away) waiting for me.
However, thanks to God, I got 7 finally and I am very happy, because my hardworking has been rewarded.
The last time I took IELTS, I scored 6.0 in speaking thus I am I quite sure of my spoken English. The problem here is,before the pre-sessional English Courses, I have no chance to prove my spoken English in another IELTS, rendering me in such paradox.
It unfolds that my listening and reading skills are very stable, there is no need for me to take lessons concerning onthese. It is unfair to me as well as goes against the fact. All that I need toimprove is my oral English.
Such is the tough situation I am in, I sincerely request your permission that my condition be taken into consideration and the restrictions of language proficiency be loosen a bit.
如果真的因为成绩拿到con offer，有两种选择：1）收到conoffer马上去argue；2）先接受con offer，毕业的时候换uncon再argue
My name is XX and I'm an conditional offer holder of MPhil in Finance and Economics. I'm writing to petition for my admission. Recently the 3rd year final exam results came out and I got 68% weighted average, which means that I have closely failed the condition(70%).
In the first two years my scores were 83% and 80%. I did not perform my best during 3rd year because of an unexpected accident XXX. I was honestly depressed and distracted during my revision time, and this adversely influenced my academic performance. My comparatively poor marks during third year are not indicative of my academic potential.
Since my original submission in February, I have successfully passed the exam of level 1 Chartered Financial Analyst exam, and I have been preparing the exam of Level 2 CFA, and learning C language for my further study in financial engineering. I believe my application has strengthened significantly, and my passion for the subject will make a contribution to the University of Cambridge's academic environment.
Going to Cambridge for economics study is the start of my pursuit in the field of finance, and is vital for the continuation to my doctoral studies. This opportunity is deeply important to me and I implore the department to reconsider my application.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
记得，argue letter直接发给programme 的director（大学官网staff表里一般都能查到他们的邮箱），毕竟secretary都身经百战，不容易被打动。
