    I only got 4Bs at AS in Maths, Physics, Chemisty and Biology. I've dropped bio now and I'm predicted 3As. The course for geophysics at Imperial College says its entry requirments are only 3As. But still do you think there is any chance of actually getting an offer?

    I wouldn't say it's particularly high. The quoted entry requirements are minimums - most offers are actually higher than AAA - and applying for a course with entry requirements over three grades higher than your AS results is optimistic for a lot of universities, never mind somewhere like Imperial. You could put it down as your ambitious choice but I honestly can't say that the chances are high, particularly now that it's recently been announced that Imperial's Earth Sciences department has the highest average graduate salary in the country which could well lead to a boost in applications.

    You're a grade off each subject. Imperial has an oversupply of applicants with AAA/A*A*A*, strong PS and the usual extra-curricular guff... It's really not very likely, I'm afraid. You'd be better off concentrating your applications on universities to which you have a realistic chance of making a competitive application.

    I don't know what type of Engineering you're applying for - some branches are more competitive than others. Your results so far are good though so you probably will have a decent chance. I don't know what you mean about the email though.

    Electronic and Electric engineering is that really competitive?

    when you apply for imperial does it send you an email saying that your application has been received? i got one for Cambridge but not one for imperial yet.

    Fairly, although I don't think it's one of their most competitive courses. Your application has been received - if you haven't received something yet you will soon. If you've got more questions about EEE at Imperial then please make a thread in the relevant forum because this is for Earth Sciences
