    Right now I'm on my second year of sixth form and I'm currently deciding on what university I want to attend after my exams which is naturally a difficult decision. I currently take 5 A levels which are chemistry, biology, physics, maths and further maths and am applying to university for physics and maths.

    Unfortunately my primary university of choice, Imperial, rejected my application but I was given an offer by another university I would like to attend, which is UCL. Despite being given an offer by UCL, I'm still unsure on whether I want to complete my exams this year and go to UCL if I achieve my predicted grades or reapply for Imperial next year to see whether I can get an offer. Obviously this is a hard and risky decision to make and I would really appreciate any input on what you think is best for me.

    My AS grades were A/A/A/B/B and my current predicted grades are A*/A*/A*/A/A. Imperial's required grades are A*/A*/A plus a grade 1 in either step 2 or 3 while UCL's required grades are A*/A*/A.

    If you can provide any input I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

    Are you really that sold on Imperial? UCL is a good UoL college! I personally would accept the UCL offer - if Imperial have rejected you this year, I don't see why they'd give you an offer next year - and there's the small mater of STEP, which isn't an issue for UCL.

    Have you found out why Imperial rejected you? If so, is it something that you can improve on?
