    Hello! I'm thinking of applying for Civil Engineering (maybe Architecture, but I doubt the latter). I'm doing A levels and this year I'm predicted 4As .

    What about you? What do you want to study?

    ah that's really good! I don't think it's bad, but you're probably best off asking the university themselves, if not at an open day then at least give them a call, I'm sure they'd be happy to help.

    So apart from chemical engineering, what else are you thinking of?

    Oh yeh they're requirements are higher :/ I would have to get an A in my mechanics module for math. So it really depends if I get that, which really depends on the paper, because sometimes I get over 90 and sometimes I get just over 80 :s (over 80 is an A). So if it's a really hard paper and I get a B then there isn't really much point in me applying to Imperial!

    No they shouldn't really mind. One (or two max.) resits are usually fine. I'm taking one in Physics because I was 4% off an A . Besides, UCL only ask for ABB for Architecture (I originally wanted to study architecture, that's how I know)

    Unfortunately, you can never be sure - typically, most of the applicants recruit from those that are predicted the stated requirements or have already achieved them. However, since there are inevitably more applicants than places available, other parts of your applications come into play: PS, reference, and interview. I think the best bet is to make all parts of your app as best as possible, to make sure you've done all you could.
