    I finished A Levels in 2010 summer and am retaking Maths only in my gap year now.

    Current grades:
    * Maths: B (retaking to get A)
    * Physics: B (may retake in summer 2011 if necessary)
    * German: A
    * ICT: A

    Minimum grades for universities:

    Imperial: A* in Maths, AA in A2
    Sheffield: AAA in A2
    Bristol: AAA in A2
    Southampton: AAA in A2

    What did you get GCSE wise and what are you intending to study? If you haven't got a bucket load of A*s at GCSE you can pretty much forget about Imperial I'm afraid, not to mention you don't meet the basic requirements for A2 :/ As for the others, you basically have to have AAA to stand a chance so make sure you retake Physics, especially if the course is competitive. Unfortunately for you, ICT is considered a very soft subject and it is doubtful that they'll care about you having 4 A levels anyway to be honest.

    Sorry to be harsh, but if I were you I'd substitute a couple for AAB universities and perhaps an insurance too.

    On second thoughts, maybe I'm just feeding the troll. Who cares.
