    Hi guys, sorry for the stereotypical question of are my grades good enough, however i applied to Imperial a week ago for Chemistry. I really like the course at Imperial, and i'd be upset if i didn't make the cut due to my GCSEs. My credentials are the following;

    GCSEs: 8As, 4Bs (6th best in year)
    AS: AAAAA, in double maths and triple science.
    A2 predictions: A*A*A*A*a in maths, FM, Chemistry, Physics and AFM respectively.

    Would the clear improvement from GCSE to AS overlook my poor achievement at GCSE?

    How much do Imperial consider GCSEs in the admissions process?

    Any input is appreciated

    My friend applied for Chem Eng at Imperial last year.
    He had lower GCSEs than you and even 2 fewer A* predictions and still managed to get an offer.
    So following that logic, you shouldn't be too bad off.
    We'll just have to wait and see what the year brings

    WTF no. I would be surprised if you don't get an offer, but then again it's also about your personal statement.

    Thanks for the really fast replies! I have a tendency to overthink things
    I was a bit intimidated by the connect page, which built up anxiety and inadequacy, mainly feelings of the latter. My school said i had a very low chance of an offer, which also contributed to my seemingly trivial question.

    But thanks you for the kind words

    Your school must be quite bad at handling university applications, then, because they're as wrong as they can be. I mean, seriously, even without A*s, that isn't a bad set of GCSE grades.

    Of course your PS is also important, but it is quite clear that you are in with a good chance of an interview! Good luck!

    What you really came here for is to have people tell you how good your grades are and to boost your ego.
