I'm an Imperial reject. I got an A*A*A offer from UCL and firmed it. I got A*A*A*. Would it be worth ringing Imperial to see if they might consider me? Their site says they're not in adjustment, but how likely is it that their filled out all places in every course? I thought I'd give it a shot. Good idea or no?

You are right, Imperial have said they are not taking part, so it is extremely unlikely you'll get in.

With Adjustment there is no risk in that you get to keep your current place if no alternative is found, so I suppose there is no harm in trying if you want, but be prepared for an outright "no".

You could do it, but it's probably a waste of your time. If they say they're not in adjustment...then they're not in adjustment. UCL's not so bad.

Yeah but if I'm not wrong they also said it in 2013 and 2014 and still accepted some students through adjustment.

Like you've got nothing to lose. It's your own time, you can do whatever you want with it.

No I'm not trying to say it's sh**ty its a really good uni. It's just that imperial don't seem to accept people even with amazing grades, which you got.

I know, just kidding. I didn;t get amazing grades at AS and I only did alright in the entrance exam so I don't blame them. I'm not sure they've ever done adjustment, it was nothing personal against me
it wouldn't matter if I got 100% in ever exam, got an Olympic gold and knighted by the queen. It's just not their policy to do adjustment. Usually.
