    So I got AAAA at AS in Bio, Chem, Physics & Maths but I didn't do as well in maths as I could have so my UMS average was pretty low for an A (around 81). As a result my predicted grades are A*A*A with the A in Maths and A*s in Physics and Chem.

    For Mechanical Engineering at Imperial, they ask for A*A*A with A*s in Maths and Physics. Should I still bother applying since I haven't met the requirements for Maths?

    You don't actually need more than 240 marks from AS to get an A* in maths. Getting 180/200 in c3 and c4 is the important bit. Perhaps retaking c1 and c2 at the end of this year might be a good idea though so you can be sure that you can get the A. Compared to c3 and 4, c 1 and 2 will feel extremely trivial and you wont even have to do any extra work.
