    Dam your grades are amazing! How were you able to do 14GCSEs and 5AS levels though?
    Haha thanks, I wouldn't exactly say General Studies or EPQ are "proper" AS Levels tho. They are kinda just there haha. I dunno about GCSE's tbh, I was just clueless about everything back then. I just did everything that people told me to do hahaha.

    Honestly, I'm not the best person to talk hahaha. I ****ed about for most of the year and I only started doing doing past papers like 2 weeks before my first exams. I was actually at a party the night before 2 of my FM modules and so I sat FP3 and S2 quite badly hungover 😂😂

    They got rejected likely due to a weakness in another part of their application - Imperial have little regard for GCSEs.

    Don't worry about your GCSEs, they're great and Imperial only want you to have a B in maths and English language anyway. I'm starting chemistry at Imperial in October and I got 4A*s, 7As, 2Bs - so very similar to yours. Offers are based on your predicted grades, and with your AS results you should be more than fine! Good luck with your application

    All you people worrying about having 4A*s, and I'm here like... I have 1A*, 8As and B. LOL.

    I emailed an admissions tutor about Computing entry and he said he thinks my GCSEs should be enough to get me considered, unless my B was in Maths (which its not phew). So you people with 4A*s, need to chill out. Haha.

    I have absolutely no idea what course I want to apply for. Was set of applying for Medicine for so long but I doubt that choice so much I think I should choose something else and I can't figure out what that should be!

    I'm quite confused that does imperial only look at your predicted grades? Or they also look at your actual AS grades? Which one is the most important ones?

    I just received my AS results in mid August.
    I've heard that some of the schools didn't do the as exams in this June due to the A level reform.
    But do those who didn't do the as just use their predicted grades to apply for uni?
    Also, does imperial look more about your predicted grades or actual AS grades?
    Because I didn't do well on AS
    For real AS I got:
    Maths A
    Chemistry A
    Biology B
    Physics (still in the process of remark)
    And I'm hoping for the predicted grades will be A*AA
    Do any of you think there's a chance for me to get the offer from imperial?
    Btw the requirement for biochemistry on he website shows AAA.
    Can any 2015/2016 applicants who got the offer for biochemistry tell me their requirement for A level from the past?
