    I am in Scotland but would love to go to UCL or KCL.

    At standard grade I got 1's in maths, english, chemistry, physics, geography, french and a 2 in biology. I also did higher computing a year early and got an A.

    I got my higher results today I got A's in maths, physics and chemistry, a B in english and a C in graphic communication.

    Do you think I would get an offer to do physics, mathematics or mechanical engineering at UCL?

    Next year I am doing advanced higher maths, physics and chemistry and I think I can realistically get AAB with the B in chemistry, or ABB with the A in physics.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The best response is: how good a case can you make for yourself? That really is what you should be focusing on.

    Nobody on here can give you a meaningful answer.

    Those grades alone won't get you entry, but then again you could say that about every set of grades.

    I know what you mean, but what I meant was if my PS was good enough, I can write about a lot of things to do with engineering I have done like greenpower f24 and young engineers - but is it possible for me to get in with those grades, ie. are they too low even if my PS etc. is great?

    Do you meet the minimum grade requirement stated in the prospectuses? If so, you can apply.

    You will need to explain why you are displeased with your grades, and show the situation has been corrected. If you can do that, grades are not a big problem, though someone with consistently top grades will always get an offer over you, assuming they're seen to be as enthusiastic as you are.

    I am in Scotland and I can't find actual higher grade requirements for UCL either on their site or on the UCAS site.

    The only one I am displeased with is Graphic Communication at C, it was a crash higher (I hadn't done standard grade) but I put in a lot of work and hoped to have done better.

    A general rule is 5 of what is asked for, so AAA means AAAAA. That doesn't work so well with things like AAB, but it couldn't be less than AAAAB I'd expect.
