    Dependent on your course. However, just from looking at it, they seem very good to me!

    UCL ask for B's in english, maths and science at gcse so your maths grade could be a problem, universities can be quite strict on gcse grades so you need to contact them before applying.
    KCL again asks for a B in maths so contact them as well.

    A-Levels are more of a concern to be honest, UCL maybe a stretch but with a good reference and ps you should be alright for KCL.

    Thank you. I’ve been told that my PS is “impressive”. Perhaps that will help.

    More than a week. It’s unfortunately too late to swap.
    School encouraged us all to apply early.
