So for my AS I got AAAA (Maths, Physics, Chemistry and History) and I'm predicted AAA (Maths, Physics and Chemistry).
I'm applying to:

  • UCL, Physics AAA-AAB
  • Kings, Physics with Theoretical Physics AAA-A*AB
  • Bath, Physics AAA
  • Bristol, Physics AAB


For my fifth choice, I'm stuck I've always wanted to apply to Imperial for MSci Theoretical Physics but I'm predicted AAA and their typical offer is A*AA. Do you guys think its worth it to apply to Imperial for BSc Physics?

try and ask for your predicted grade to be bumped coz imperial physics means your up against candidates predicted or holding 2 or more a*s
good luck though, i guess you dont lose anything by trying

Lancaster has a pretty good physics department

Personally for your last choice I would pick an insurance choice.

What you could always try is hanging on for a while and see if you get any offers from any of those above. If you do and you are happy with what you are offered (as in it seems achievable) that's great and you can try adding Imperial as your 5th choice. If you don't get any offers or they're higher than you were expecting then try looking for an insurance with a lower offer. Just remember to change this before the deadline so don't wait too long!

Hope this helps!

Explore to see a bit more what is known about the teachers and their writings, etc.

Than go for the school you want to explore and make your own
