How much do Imperial care about GCSEs? (EFDS)

Looking to learn how big of a factor GCSEs hold in assessing an applicant, particularly for Imperial College London's Economics Finance and DatSci undergrad course (compared to the other factors of TMUA, Interview, and so on).
They are quite opaque, but I think they allude to the fact that they do use them, (emphasis mine):

"GCSE grades
In assessing your academic potential, we review all the material information available to us from your UCAS application.

However, our entry requirements are based on A-level or equivalent level qualifications.

The only GCSE grade that we may consider with respect to entry requirements is your English language grade if you are using the results of this qualification to show that you meet our required English language standard for entry, or a relevant modern foreign language for courses with a year abroad."


The second half of that relates only to their offer conditions, not the selection process.

I would contact the relevant admissions team and ask them directly. Anyone on here would just be guessing tbh.
