    Please help, I want to apply to Imperial for Chemical Engineering which has a requirement of A* A* A

    My predicted grades are A* A A - one less A* than required

    Is it still worth applying or would it be automatically rejected?

    Hi Maria, I would say give it a try because you don't know how many people are going to apply so... Can't you level your grades up like having what they are asking for because since most of the offers they make are slightly lower then.....

    It's worth a try given you are only one below their requirement (assuming you have good AS grades and a good personal statement!). I'm pretty sure they interview for Chemical Engineering so hopefully you are close enough for them to give you an interview. You get five choices so I think it's a good idea to use one on an ambitious choice, you don't want to spend the rest of your life thinking about what would have happened if you applied!
