    If I was in your position, I would definitely firm Imperial or Warwick, do STEP I and II this year, and apply to Cambridge if you get 2 A*'s and 1, 1 in STEP (which you should surely be able to do if you did well in BMO1).

    Personally I find STEP harder than the BMO1. Well, STEP II and III that is.

    Are you a Scottish student?

    Imperial and Warwick will not be in Clearing for Maths.

    Glasgow is an excellent university - why did you choose it in the first place?? And why are all your choices except Oxford in Scotland?

    If you genuinely don't fancy it and expect to do well in your A-levels then a gap year is a perfectly acceptable route.

    Does Glasgow have a good reputation?
    I don't want to risk taking a gap year then not getting in to my preferred unis again
    I guess il need to take a gamble ( got family in Scotland and lived there for a while that's why I have put Scottish unis on my list)

    If you are applying in a gap year having achieved, or exceeded, the typical requirements then an offer is very likely. Except for Oxbridge of course.
