I have ielts dilemma too...
I took a gap year, so I actually applied UCAS after I got my results. So apparently, i fulfill all the conditions and requirements, except for Imperial, who wants me to get band 7 for all categories...
( i'm applying for bilogical science btw, easy course to get in but no secure of job opportunities in the future)
So i retook ielts, a 2nd time. God knows how expensive it is. Unfortunately, I only got 6.5 for writing, 7 for speaking, 9 for listening, 8.5 for reading.
Should i send it for a remark just for writing as i need only 0.5, (a dreadful waste of money if it remain unchanged)
or retake ielts again? (another as expensive option)
or give up and just go for UCL or Edinburgh which i got unconditional offers from so I wouldn't need to waste any more monies retaking ielts just to get into imperial?
Please advice.... thankyou ^^
