Default Appealing Downwards

Hi, my A Level results were AAB/AD for HELm combi, with a B for Econs and D for H1 Math.

I put in 3 single-degree choices 1) Law 2) BizAd and 3) FASS. Knew law would be a long shot and put in BizAd out of pressure at home, didn't even expect to get in with that D. But now that law is out, I'm more comfortable with FASS than BizAd.

What are my chances of appealing downwards from my second choice to third? And would my concerns about handling the math content of Biz be a valid reason for the downgrade?

Never hurt to try. I don't think you will lose your spot when you appeal unless your appeal is successful.(Do confirm with the OAM about this)

Anyway, your chances on appealing would be dependent on the number of slots they have left after accepting people from the 1st window so it would be difficult to gauge even though your score is above the 10th percentile of FASS.
