None of us will know exactly unless we’re secretly imperial admissions staff. Just make sure you meet their requirements including the 6 in English language at gcse. If you really want to get I’m spend some of your summer improving your PS so it’s better than just ok.

Well, the minimum offer seems to be AAA with Maths & Physics, so academically you're in the ballpark.

That's about as much as we can say. The only way to give yourself no chance at all is to not apply.

Overseas or U.K. applicant? I don’t think the geosciences courses are as oversubscribed as some.

Do that put me in a disadvantage if I apply as international?

Home and International are considered the same for non-capped courses, (IE Medicine).

The only people that say what weighting Imperial put on a GCSE profile is Imperial themselves. Everyone else would just be guessing.

Just call them ahead of applying, "I'm aware my GCSE profile isn't the strongest and wondered if you could give me any guidance as to how I'd be considered?". They'll either be encouraging or not.

Either way, the objective isn't to get five offers back and then struggle to pick betwen them. If you want a chance at Imperial, apply.

Very likely yes, due to uncertainty about teacher assessed grades which are typically higher than the "real thing", and also because a lot more students than usual deferred from last year, so you are also in competition with some of the 2020 cohort.

The advice above applies to 2021 entry only. If you are applying for 2022 then neither schools, applicants nor unis know what will be happening regardings exams. Likely things will be practically back to normal.
