    I'm a final year BEng Chemical Engineering student, I've applied for Msc Advanced Chemical engineering at Imperial and currently I'm on a lower first (73.1%) ... I have no work experience ! Is it likely that they will accept me ? Their requirements state that you have to get a higher 2:1 or 1st class, but I've heard a lot of people saying that if you don't have an average of 75% and above, Imperial won't even consider you... I hope it's not true

    Hi,

    Did you get an offer from Imperial? I'm considering applying next year but I wanna know how strict they are on the grade entry requirements. Do you know anyone who got in with a high 2:1?
