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?

 

嗯,有些小伙伴们通过argue成功拿到了unconditional offer,想学习怎么跟英国大学argue?下面就让主页君和你说说argue的事。




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


con 语言


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:

 

 1.在天朝,IELTS考试报名相当不容易,尤其是在IELTS考试高峰期的时候,考位不太容易预约,之前某次成绩不甚理想,所以报名参加了不久之后的考试,预计成绩会在X分(这个分数要根据自己的实力来评估,不能过分夸大),分数出来就立刻给学校发过去; 


2.   考了2-3次IELTS,总分够了,但是总有个别单项没有达到要求,希望学校能够综合看待这几次IELTS成绩;

 

3.   IELTS总分超过了要求,但只有一项小分差0.5(这种情况有argue成功的案例);

 

4.   虽然目前IELTS成绩不够,但口语很好,如果可以,学校给一个电话面试的机会。(当然这个就需要你的口语非常棒);

 

5.   有过英语授课的学历,比如2+2、3+2留学项目

 

Con语言的argue范文:


Dear XX,

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.


Best regards,

XX

 

con 成绩


一般来说,如果你的均分和学校要求相差2分之内都不需要argue,英国大学不会抠那么仔细,毕竟算分方式不同,得出来的平均分也不尽相同。


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

 

通常来说,第二种选择成功的几率比较大一些,你可以argue的理由:

 

1.   虽然综合均分没有达到要求,但专业课分数高于学校要求;

 

2.   本科第四年的成绩进步比较大;

 

3.   最后一年的成绩没有发挥好;

 

4.   本科学校专业比较牛掰;

 

5.   在天朝,论文所占比重不大,想要提高均分很难;

 

6.   老师对毕业论文的评价很高;

 

7.   论文期间,还发表了专业相关的paper

 

Con成绩的argue范文:

 

Dear XXX,

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.

Very respectfully

XX

 

不幸收到拒信的孩纸们,也要想方设法知道自己被拒的原因,然后才能知道怎么去argue,通常突破口有:专业成绩,语言,学校背景,课外活动,学术活动,实习经验等等。


总之就是:如果你有什么真材实料,哪方面比较突出,直接说出来,自我谦虚什么的,在傲娇的英国大学面前根本不起作用,当然也不要过分吹嘘,吹过头了那叫作假,英国大学对这方面一律零容忍。

 

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。

 

最后:希望每一位同学都能argue到自己的dream school。
