    I presume you've seen this already, but here you go.

    A-levels

    All applications that meet the minimum grade requirement of A*AAA or A*A*A will be considered.
    Actual offers may vary and the majority of offers are A*A*AAto include:

    • A* in Mathematics
    • A* or A in Chemistry
    • Remaining A-levels in relevant subjects including Physics, Biology, Further Mathematics, and Economics

    We also consider GCSE achievements, or their equivalent.

    What's your opinon
    I also applied for Chemical Engineering this cycle and we have Imperial and UCL in common! I didn't think Kent and Bristol offered Chemical Engineering (please correct me if I'm wrong) did you apply for something else there?
    Generally most Chemical Engineering universities as far as I'm aware don't really hold GCSEs with much importance and mainly look at A-Levels, that being said it is important to be aware of any entry requirements.
    I only really know about Imperial's and UCL's thoughts on GCSEs since I've applied to them too. For Imperial, like another user said the ChemEng department stated they consider GCSE achievements but they weren't too specific. I've seen some people on TSR who have less than a Grade B in GCSE English Language be required to sit a proficiency test like IELTS as part of their offer. With UCL I know that they want English Language and Mathematics at Grade C and a Grade C in a foreign language (other than Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew or Latin) is required. So as long as you have that you should be fine for them.
    Out of interest, which subjects do you do?
