    I have A*AA in chem physics and maths, and a B in as further maths should i apply for Computer science at imperial? they say they want an A* in maths but they may consider people who have an A* in something else.

    They say they might consider someone with an A* in a subject other than Maths so I think it's worth at least trying. Just make sure you have a good personal statement to go with it! If you really want to go to Imperial then you don't want to regret not applying a few years from now. You have five choices and as long as you are confident at least three of the others will accept you there's no harm in having an optimistic choice (unless you don't really want to go to Imperial and would prefer to replace it with another choice).

    I almost didn't apply to Imperial because I was sure they would reject me. I'm really happy I did apply because I got an offer and I've had a wonderful time there.

    To be honest for Computer science at Imperial they pay so much attention to maths so applying with a B in further maths is a huge risk
