    It really depends what course you want to apply for and what subjects your grades were in (they will probably be happy to ignore a C in GCSE Art, but not a C in Maths).

    I did Biological Sciences and I know people on my course who have similar GCSE grades to you and Imperial no longer considers GCSE grades for Medicine (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/study/ug/...cine/medicine/), so if you want to apply for either of those courses your GCSE results won't mean an automatic rejection. I'm sure your results would be fine for other courses at Imperial as well because they aren't bad at all, but for some of the more competitive courses like Chemical Engineering or Computing they need a way of choosing people and it may come down to GCSE results because all of the applicants are amazing.

    Focus on your A Levels and see how things go. Imperial can ignore GCSE results, but only if your A Levels are what they need to be for the course you are interested in (A*AA for most courses).

    It doesn't say anything on the website about it and I don't know anyone who is doing Maths, but it is one of the more popular options. From my experience of Imperial I would say you could stand a chance with your GCSEs (as long as the C grades aren't in any 'important' subjects like Maths or English).

    The entry requirements is now a minimum of A*A*A (with the A*'s in Maths and Further Maths), so if you are predicted to get that and you have a good personal statement and you do well in the admissions tests, they may be able to forget about some GCSEs. If you are serious about applying then you can always send them an email to ask how you can improve your application and chances of being accepted.
