    Hi there,
    I'm international student and didn't do GCSE English, so IELTS overall 6.5 including all components above 6.5 is required in my conditional offer.
    I'm going to take IELTS again(have done twice before) on 16th(annoyingly between Alevels), and it's the last take I can have.
    I wonder if there is any cases that the IELTS requirement is not achieved but Imperial still accept the applicant, or any chance to postpone the deadline of submiting IELTS scores?
    Well i'm not confident to get every single component above band 6.5..
    Thanks!

    Isn't it 6.0 in every band score?
    I guess if you don't reach every single one and don't miss it by.. let's say 2 points.. you should still have a chance for getting accepted. I've heard about people who didn't reach it who got accepted after they promised to take an English course.

    Ok.. that's probably the difference between Under- and Postgrad. Sorry, I have no idea about the application in general of them.
