    Plz no rude/ sarcastic replies, cant find much on their website.

    I have read a lot on here that Imperial do look at GCSE's a lot.

    I want to go to imperial to study either some sort of engineering but more likely, Chemistry.

    At GCSE I got;
    Maths A*
    Chemistry A*
    Physics A*
    Biology A*
    English Language A*
    English Literature A (awaiting remark)
    Geography A
    Art A
    Latin A
    French A

    and FSMQ A

    I was quite dissapointed because I really want to have the best chance to get into imperial. Will they care about an A in Latin and Art for science courses?

    For A level I'm doing
    Further Maths
    Maths
    Physics
    Chemistry

    Im not bragging b4 people say that I just really need advice. If I work really hard a A level and can get between A*AA and A*A*A, do you think I can make it?

    Also for imperial, is it worth doing EPQ, a gold crest award, or maybe STEM???
    thanks in advance

    EDIT: Also I have seen someone saying he average ucas acceptance is 540, what would that equate to on the new tariff??

    Your GCSEs are more than adequate and the other part is a no brainier!

    Okay, thanks for the reply. DO you think an EPQ is worth it? I am already going to do STEm this year, so hopefully! Also would work experience help my case or make no difference?

    Your doing four alevels soo it's not vital and work experience in engineering is pretty much impossible so stick to doing STEM and EES and try to do Headstart and small piece and stuff like that. Work experience would look very good though.

    Ahhh great thanks! I will do some work experience in Chemistry at Oxford Uni (If they accept me, just applied lol:P), maybe see if my school has any contacts for engineering.
