    Do imperial still look at medicine applications? And if you at the end of the year get A* in maths and 2A's and they wanted A* in chemistry or biology do they still accept or would the offer be withdrawn. Thanks in advance

    You need to meet their entry requirements and yes in some cases they are subject specific. Moving to the medicine forum.

    Thanks. Sorry I tried to find medicine forum but couldn't. Lets say I get predicted A*AA A* being maths and at the end of the year I do achieve the A* in bio/chem would they still offer me a place?

    They arent obligated to confirm your offer as you have technically missed it, however they may still confirm it as youve only slightly missed it, and still got above AAA

    Really? It's only a few away from the biology one. Anyway this is in the right forum now

    We can play this game of will they give me an offer or not all day and still get nowhere. If you meet their requirements most likely yes. If not most likely no unless you have good reason for not meeting them.

    My friend got interviewed with 4A predictions and an avg bmat, as long as youre predicted all A's minimum and you get a decent bmat youre set. What about upping your bio prediction?

    Aha. I will just speak to my teachers so that I do get an A* predicted in either bio or chem and A for maths. Thank you and a few away from bio ones? Not sure I just saw stem then only found biology and life sciences on the list sorry.

    'We expect applicants for 2018 entry to meet the following grade requirements in these subjects: A* in Chemistry or Biology A in the remaining subject from Chemistry or Biology A in a third subject'

    You're not predicted to meet their offer, so they won't give you one. You're predicted an A* in a subject that isn't one of the subjects they need an A* in. They wouldn't offer you a place at the end of year because medicine hardly ever goes into Clearing and is virtually unheard of at Imperial.

    I will ask my teacher. I got overall 75% in interal mocks which if my teacher used this years grade boundaries would be an A* but he used %. Chem 75% too but she never predicts anyone A*. So i will just have to prove to my bio teacher. He is more considerate than my chem teacher.
