    A*- maths, english language & religious studies
    A- biology, chemistry, physics & geography
    B- french & ICT

    Imperial doesn't look at gcse; they are very bmat-heavy uni- like very harsh on bmat; you need to meet the cut-off for every section.

    From what I've heard:
    Bristol seems to put 70% weight on ps, queen mary puts 50:50 weight on ukcat and ucas point, Cambridge takes a 'holistic' approach to ur application so if your gcse is not good then other parts of your applications has to be brilliant (+ correct me if im wrong but Cambridge does seem to interview lots of the applicants so interview is the most important).

    Unis you should deffo avoid:
    oxford, Birmingham, Cardiff, Manchester (not sure as they are ukcat-heavy), UCL (tho app they also take a holistic approach).
