I tried to call them and they said I need to sent them an e-mail, so I did and no replies so far
imperial wants to know youll work hard and consistently
they care little for what youre like as a person.

they want tools.

you should have said youre determined hard working and very passionate about the subject. they dont want people with healthy hobbies and other interests such as ur DOE and oxfam helping.

they want grade A tools

Thanks Beetroot roots, my school phoned them and they said the admission tutor misread my AS results. My chemistry syllabus is 'Chemistry B Salters' and they thought I got a B rather than A.
Anyway, problem solved. I have got my conditional offer early this year.

Two bitter posts in one day...

Clearly, this is nonsense. Anyone believing this is spectacularly jaded.

Someone who only works is unlikely to be happy at university. The college throws loads of money at the union and clubs and societies to encourage people to socialise. The college volunteering centre encourages volunteering with the college as it is known how useful this is in life. The humanities department allow you to study topics to broaden your base as a person.

I have no idea where your opinions come from beetroot roots, but if you're an imperial student you might want to try leaving your room and experiencing the rest of the college life.
