Worth applying to Imperial?

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Just interested in people's opinions as I'm not sure what to do basically I just finished my A levels and got A* in maths, then A in chemistry, physics and further maths. I'm taking a gap year and am going to spend some time volunteering abroad and some time working at a secondary school/sixth form. I would like to study physics at university, so basically my question is is it worth applying to Imperial College (who advertise A*A*A as entry requirements) or would they not even look at my application? Grateful for any advice you can give, thanks

    go for it. you have nothing to lose just make sure the rest are A*AA/AAA choices.

    As you'll get an unconditional offer then worth checking the course structures and going to open days if at all possible to then decide on your 5 choices (if you need that many) Could use Extra in June if pitch too high and get 5 flat out rejections though

    It might be worth having a go, just make sure you apply to a couple of universities you like and can safely get into.

    You can apply but unless you are planning to resit to acheive A*A*A (currently you have A*AAA from my understanding) then it is unlikely you will receive an offer.
