    I know for EU fees, but my question is does Glasgow really reach their cap on EU places?
    And Glasgow usually asks for lower marks than the 2 previous unis for french people, hence why he should be fine.

    The cap is across all EU and Scottish acceptances due to funding restrictions. And actually is resulting in Scottish universities reducing Scottish acceptances in favour of better qualified EU applicants.
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education...-students.html
    "Glasgow University said the number of places it can offer Scottish and EU students is capped and it is forbidden from discriminating between them."

    However even with a slightly lower requirement at Glasgow the OP is still missing it...

    You are worrying me, really 🤣🤣

    I've applied to UK unis but I'll always have French schools if I don't realize what I was looking for. I just have to wait and see and I'll try to improve my grades, I also wish admission committies will take care of statement and letters joined to file

    As I said, if you get 5 rejections then you can also try UCAS Extra, and if necessary Clearing. Plenty of students find very good places via Clearing, especially if your grades end up being better than your predictions.

    It might be an idea to start researching some additional university choices as a "Plan B".

    I just saw entry requirements of Imperial, for French students they require 16 on Math, 16 on Physics and 15 for overall, BUT they don't talk about average grades of the 11th and 12th grades, they talk about the FINAL baccalaureate ( which is the only exam able to compare all French students ). Honestly, it will be easy for me to get 15 or more for overall, a few harder to get 16 for Math, and really harder to get 16 on Physics. I also know I can get more than 17 on English.

    I really wish the conditional offer

    Why have you only now checked the entry requirements? You really should have done that before applying...

    Also Maths & Physics are important for Engineering. English... not so much. You yourself were saying you preferred the UK system with its narrow focus on relevant subjects... that's why they have high expectations for applicants in those specific subjects.

    Did your reference include final bacc predictions?

    You did? Or did your referee complete the reference section of the UCAS application? Hmm, so it sounds like you haven't provided a reference either...

    If you sent your letters of recommendation separately have your universities confirmed receipt? And that they are acceptable?

    Did you apply using UCAS? Or is there a different application process for EU students? (because it sounds like you’ve missed a lot of the required information that UCAS ask for in an application.)

    Not knowing entry requirements, mentioning multiple “recommendation letters” when ucas only accept one recommendation and that’s submitted via email. You just seem to be misinformed about the application process? E.g. thinking applying to the same uni on different courses will give you a better shot or that they’ll take into account how hard your school is when looking at entry requirements.

    I’m not trying to be mean, there just seem to be a lot of things you’ve missed or not thought of until now?
