    I don't see why you couldnt, those sets of grades are strong. However, is there no way to ask your teachers for an A prediction in FM?
    probably not, so does that mean I shouldn't apply. even though I think I can get an A

    The student satisfaction is low for Edinburgh and Manchester on league tables and unistats so until now I haven't considered either when deciding on 5 the unis. Your thoughts?

    Don't pay too much attention to student satisfaction, it's very easy for a university to manipulate and score well. When graduates are in their final year, they are told to say the course has been brilliant on the surveys etc so they score well and don't devalue the course. This is why you'll very often see newer courses that rely on this more than established universities performing so well.

    I think Birmingham would be a good insurance
    It is not as good as Cambridge/Imperial nonetheless still a great RG uni for Chem Eng
    No interview needed and therefore saves time
    The A*AA or AAAA offer provides a bit of flexibility so it is unlikely to miss both

    Nottingham or Loughborough as they require an A in either Chem or physics so i can get in if i flop chem

    Probably Manchester, I've heard that although they publish entry requirements of A*AA, they often accept people who miss their offer by a grade or two.

    Can I send an application to Cambridge now, then send an application for all the other universities that have the later deadline, at a later date?

    Yes

    You add the others later, but you can't change anything else in your application. Your PS, reference, etc stays the same.

    Yes you can
    It's possible to add the other choices later if you haven't decided them yet
    But of course you would have to pay for them when you add your choices too (The total fee is the same as applying to five unis at once)

    I applied to:
    Manchester
    Birmingham
    Bath
    UCL
    Can't remember my fifth sorry

    EDIT: Fifth Application was to Nottingham who also gave me an unconditional offer without interview. :P

    I did a gap year before so I already had my grades:
    GCSEs (Summer 2011) - 6A*s 4As
    A-Levels (Summer 2013) - Maths (A) Chemistry (A) Computer Studies (A) Biology (B)



    I got unconditional offers from Birmingham and Manchester, the others rjected me

    I'm thinking of applying to the meng chemical engineering course at manchester. I've been predicted A*AA, I loved the department at the discover engineering day. What was your interview like? Did they ask you really hard questions? For example, did they ask you standard A level maths and chemistry question or ''trick'' questions.

    I do chemical engineering st the university of sheffeild.

    This thread said an interview wasn't required, and none of my friends on the course had an interview, but I did... Bit weird!
    I phoned them up on results day as I hadn't got the grades required, and instead of kicking me off the course they had just moved me onto the straight 4 year course. I asked if I would be able to move back on to the year in industry course, and they said yes if I got a 2:1 at the end of first year.
    They said the reason they were keeping me was because I did really well in interview.... An interview which apparently no one else had! XD
    That's quite strange.... Did you perhaps not do A levels?

    Really?? I've been predicted A*AA, but I honestly think I'l get AAA for the masters chemical engineering course. Where did you hear that??

    I'm having difficulty deciding between chemical engineering and medicine.

    Does anyone have any advice?

    Do you want to be a doctor or an engineer?

    I don't know!

    I really love maths, biology and chemistry, but I'm not a massive fan of physics.

    Medicine then. Maybe in research.

    Engineering is basically applied physics.
