Question Description
I have got 55% number and I have been accepted in a UK college. I have also got good marks in IELTS but I am scared if immigration officers will allow me to study in the UK with such a low marks. Actually my marks were low only in Math (37) and Science (47), in other subjects, it is good. The course I have chosen has nothing to do with Mathematics, it is Human Resource Management. With my good score in IELTS and my acceptance in UK College, will the immigration officer grant me a visa? Or will there be any problem?

By the way I’m taking an education loan…
Answer

The reason for visa denial cannot be exactly known until you’ve been rejected. Because, you may not see your weak points that the immigration officers see. You think your score is low so you’ll get rejected but reason for denial may be different than this.

Whether you’ll get a visa or not is really a very difficult question. As far I know, many students with score less than yours also get visa, but some unfortunate students get rejected for this reason.

You can increase your change of obtaining a UK study visa by displaying your willingness to study the course you’ve chose. You must be able to show good reasons why you have chosen this course, how can you complete it, and what you’ll do after completing it.

Though you said you have scored low only in Mathematics and Science, it shows you were not dedicated to your studies; the immigration officers will suspect it to be same when you are in UK. Now, if you want to obtain a UK student visa, convince the immigration officers that you really want to study this course and it is your field of interest. If you can convince them, you’ll get a visa, otherwise, it is difficult.
