Thank you.

You do have the option to write to them explaining and apologising and asking to be allowed a further time to accept. You could fill out the form and send it back with the letter attached.

Maybe they will accept. Maybe they won’t. Often people will exercise their discretion in your favour if you are polite and properly behaved.
