    It would be good if you have any work experience that you could mention on personal statement. Kings like work experience.

    You need to meet the subject requirements i.e. for Biology and Chemistry foundation, you need biology and chemistry. If you meet the entry requirements then thats good enough as foundations are meant to be for people who didn't perform well.

    How were your grades like? I think you should get in as long as you meet the subject requirements and BBB.

    I am actually studying in HSC board in India and my predicted grades are 75% overall (70% is the requirement on the website).Though where I come from is a rural area and I haven't had quite as many opportunities to work or even do any activity.I am also applying for UCL's foundation? Are you?

    I am doing a Foundation at Cambridge (CSC) in January for 6 months and from there I will be applying to Bachelors. The course there is equivalent to A-Levels so its great. People have gone to QMUL, KCL, Bath and Durham from that college. I would suggest you to consider CSC as a backup terms of UCL's Foundation, it is quite competitive. You have to sit an entrance exam and then go for an interview. But its worth a try.What course do you want do?

    I only applied to KCL and CSC because my course doesn't have a lot of foundations.
