    Today i got my results

    Maths - A
    Physics - C
    Chemistry - C

    I got 203 UMS in Chemistry and 204 UMS in Physics i am 0.02% from B from either subject, i failed the Physics practical with an E and my teacher told me not to resit the unit 1 of Physics so i stuck with 82UMS i got 78% in Unit 2.

    I really want to get into Imperial or UCL for Aerospace engineering, the reason for failing this bad is because recently all of my siblings and parent moved out to find work so i had to live by myself for 1 whole year.

    Do you think if i try extremely hard this year i can actually get into Imperial/UCl for engineering?

    All suggestions and information are much appreciated!

    Yeah, you're in with a shot for UCL, not so much Imperial. It wont be easy, but nobody ever said it would.

    Work hard on resits and work even harder for your A levels.

    My advice would be only apply to UCL, and spend the other 4 options on other good schools.

    Good luck!
