    yes, I'm growing more and more nervous by the minute. Got all 4 of my other offers, just...Imperial...
    I had an 8 in maths and a 7 in physics (it was a joint subject with chemistry, my physics grade was a 9 and my chemistry grade a 6, which was 2/3 of the subject final grade...)

    Oh, I'm an IB student where 7 is the maximum. I take HL Physics/Chemistry/Maths and SL Italian/English/Economics. I've pretty much consistently scored 7's in everything apart from math...and Imperial wants a minimum of a 7 in HL maths...

    Oh alright. Then if you have a 6 maybe there will be no problems. But I dunno, because I scored full marks in the rest of the subjects, except one, so I can't promise anything. But good luck and be patient! You will find out soon

    Then focus more on math, it is not like they are asking for a 45. Or are you already doing that?

    How come? Just practice 24/7, eventually it won't be a problem.

    Yes I'm pretty set on Bristol but one does not simply turn down UCL... Although apparently i's not that good for mechanical engineering.

    I heard for Mechanical it's utter crap. It was my 5th choice. Go with the better course. Name doesn't matter (and I'm sure aero employers know UCL isn't strong)

    Since I'm one of these weird IB people, Bristol asks for 38 and Bath asks for 36...probably gonna firm Imperial and insurance Bath if all goes...well...but I feel so uncertain now...
