    Bit late but ah well.

    GCSE's - 1A*, 7A's and 2B's
    AS - AAAA in maths, bio, chem and physics respectively
    A2 Prediction - A*AA

    Applied - Imperial, UCL, Queen Mary's, Bath and Aston (Insurance)

    Would you say that with a good ps and reference Imperial or UCL would consider me??
    No chance with Imperial- have you even seen their entry requirements? UCL you will almost certainly get an offer.

    I'm doing chemistry, maths and further maths. I feel like I'm at a disadvantage because I kept further maths as my 3rd and not physics? :/

    You won't be at a disadvantage at all. I'm a first year at Manchester and I also didn't do physics, I didn't even do f/maths.

    Bath is much more better than UCL.

    You're probably applying to the industrial experience course right?

    You can change to the industrial experience course even if you apply for the standard three year course.

    Don't know why they make its requirements higher.

    Have anybody checked which of the university is more focussed on chemical engineering and research oriented with less students to get more attention rather than the ranking itself.

    Some rankings give more weight to student survey data than research (e.g. The Guardian).

    Hi guys,
    Does UCL require an interview to give you an offer?
    And has anybody got a response even from UCL?

    sheffield is great i had a lot of fun. The course is really hard but im guessing most people here already no that lol. grad prospects are good as long as you do a placement. most people from my year who don't have jobs its because they didn't do a placement. I didn't do a placement so didn't get a job now i'm trying to get into finance. Another post on here said if you didn't get a grad scheme your ****ed and i think its kinda true no small companies want to train grad engineers and if they do they offer really low salary which is why i'm trying for finance.
