    Basically I went to the imperial open day and loved it! At AS I got AAAB - (B in chemistry was 1 ums off an A) I'm predicted 3A*'s in maths, further and physics. And I was wondering what department I have a chance at - the stats show it's a lot easier to get into aeronautical then mechanical with 55% of applicants reciving offers compared to just 26% for Mech eng. I preferred the mechanical department but I was wondering which one I had a better chance at?

    Please don't make this decision based on which department's "easier" to get into! You're going to spend the next four years and potentially the rest of your life studying this subject, you should choose it based on which one you find more interesting. As you've pointed out, the Mechanical Engineering course is more competitive than aeronautical engineering (in terms of applications per place, anyway), but this shouldn't be the deciding factor for which one you apply to.

    I understand and by that I think mechanical but I just want to be realistic because I think I would enjoy the aeronautical course just as much
