    I am not sure what G5 is. Work experience is always beneficial for everything. Although is is not required if you are applying for University, but it will make your like easier in job applications.

    Not at all.

    0 work experience and I already have an interview at a decent uni and an offer at another (for aerospace)

    I'm sure it'd have been nice, though.

    I may go to a construction site or something with help from my parents but not in this year
    I'm currently taking Engineering Education Scheme (EES), does this count as working experience?

    G5 is a term of reference to refer to Oxbridge and the 3 famous London universities. Every year, staff from G5 along with (G7) Queen Mary, and SOAS will visit many countries to meet prospective international students in hotel rooms and exhibition halls for the Study in UK fair. Students from first world countries will only apply to G5, G7 or G12 universities which includes Durham, Bristol, Birmingham, Warwick and Nottingham. Hope this clears your doubt.

    If this is the case, you will be ok...you'll only need the grades and the motivation for the course you are interested.
