Could I apply to Imperial or Cambridge 2018

    • Thread Starter

    For my as I achieved AAAC in maths chemistry physics and further maths respectively. I am predicted A*A*AB and I know this is very low for chemical engineering. However If I was to achieve A*A*AA or better could I apply to either imperial or Cambridge in 2018??

    You could. No one can tell you if you'll get in or not, though.
    As far as I know, those sound like good grades, so that plus a good personal statement should stand you in good stead.

    grades mean a lot, but its by far from everything at Cambridge. After you pass their minimum requirement, they barely look at grades anymore, than its the entrance test for chemical engineering and interview. At imperial theres no entrance test but, they also have some kind of interview but not too sure about theirs.

    So all in all, good grades defo does not guarantee you a place, and doesn't even come close to that.

    But good luck!
