    I didn't get an offer from Cambridge. Only Imperial. But according to my feedback from Cambridge, the rejection was due to my interview so hopefully not the grades

    Remember to look at top 10 for your course Not overall rankings like QS Top Universities. You don't wanna end up at UCL for mechanical engineering

    People exaggerate the difficulty of the UCAS application. I failed my GCSEs (not literally) and got poor AS but have an AAA offer for BEng lol

    UCL - great for medicine, arts, biological sciences etc. Not so much for engineering.

    Some underrated unis for engineering would be Southampton, Bath and Manchester if you're looking at ChemE.
