Hi thank you for your question. Please remember to rate my answer 3 STARS OR ABOVE so that I am credited for my time.
Please can you clarify:
Where you were born?
Was your mother married when you were born?
I was born in syria damascus and my mother were marry that time to my father but my father dosnot have the british nationality
Thank you for your reply.
As your mother was a person who was registered under section 4C and became a British citizen by descent she will not be able to pass on British citizenship to any children born outside the United Kingdom or the British overseas territories. Therefore, she will not be able to pass on nationality to you.
I am sorry if this was not the answer you were looking. I hope this answers your question, if so kindly leave positive feedback..

The fact that you do not qualify for nationality is quite clear. To obtain nationality on the basis of any discretion being exercised by the UKBA is also very unlikely. They usually take that stance that an applicant must strictly meet the requirements to qualify for nationality otherwise they refuse the application.
You are however free to apply, including all the insinuating circumstances and requesting the UKBA to exercise special discretion on your matter. I would however, not be hopeful in this kind of application being successful.
I am sorry if this was not the answer you were looking. I hope this answers your question, if so kindly leave positive feedback.
I am a qualified solicitor and an expert in UK law
