A bird in the hand...

There's no guarantees you will get offers from either Imperial or, particularly, Cambridge.

That said, if you are ok with taking a gap year and applying anyway (noting you are likely to get offered by UCL or similar again) then why not...

It's really up to you.

Edit: have you already been rejected by Imperial/Cambridge?

Only if you can significantly improve your application following a prior rejection.

Did you receive feedback about your previous application? If you can confidently address any issues raised in your feedback and bearing in mind most successful Cambridge re-applicants will have achieved A*A*A*+ in the standard 2 years, then, again, it's your choice to have another go.

But, as I said, there would be no guarantees.

Take the one year and go for Cambridge/Imperial. UCL's engineering department has an awful reputation.

Or you could just go to one of the many other extremely good engineering schools, there's not a whole lot of difference in course quality or reputation within the engineering world between Cam/Imperial and other unis in the top 15-20 for engineering.
