    Haha I guess so, I did my maths A Level this year, and got a high A* so I suppose that helps, and am predicted A*A*A* for Physics, Chemistry and Further Maths.

    But I'm a lil worried for the interview, as I don't really know what to expect but hopefully they will recognise that I'm worth it, even if I'm quite a shy person. I wouldn't worry if you don't have an interview yet, if you're a good candidate then I'm sure it will all work out.
    Lol, I knew those Imperial tutors interview in order of application strength. I'm applying for medicine, so I definitely won't be getting any updates until December probably, since the BMAT results are released in late Nov.

    I wouldn't worry about shyness, if you've gone to an Imperial open day, shyness is pretty abundant.

    This is very true, its basically just an entire school of lovely but awkward geeks, which suits me completely fine!

    I have an interview for Manchester on Thursday, so I'm treating that as my 'practice' for Imperial, as my school mock interview system means that mine isn't until 25th November, which is useful for Cambridge but not for these two haha.

    Good luck with your medicine application! Several of my close friends are also applying to Imperial for medicine, and looking at what they are going through, with UKCAT stress etc, I'm very glad I chose a pure subject. BMAT sounds v fun, enjoy it!

    I hope they don't ask for my UMS, lol. Is it normal of them to do so?

    If you're applying to physics (I can't comment on other courses) then they will ask for your UMS, yes. You'll get an email from them, acknowledging your application and asking for individual module UMS scores. They say something about your application being delayed if you don't provide it

    Unless they say specifically on the website, they don't really look at GCSEs. I got A*A*AAABBBBC and got in to one of the more selective courses, and I know many who got lower. If you have the predicted A level grades in what they want, and you write a good statement and have a good reference, you're sure to get an interview.

    Saying that, in terms of an idea of what you're up against, for aero, regardless of the entry requirements, the majority of students admitted 2 years ago had A*A*A*A* (according to the admissions tutor). I don't know how much predicted grades ABOVE the requirement had a hand in playing into this though.

    I think the admissions tutor has miscalculated by saying that most students have 4A*. Imperial is good, but it's not that good.

    It's not a miscalculation, that's what the data says. And Imperial's aero course is the #1 strict aero course in the country. With offers of A*A*A or A*AAA and approximately 100 spaces for an insane number of applicants, it's not too hard to believe. I started in 2011, first year of A* A levels and the majority of people I knew had higher grades than me (A*A*AA). The admissions tutor was explicitly stating this to prospective students on a previous open day, so it's not a mere miscalculation .

    On that note, just realised there's an extra undergrad offered by imperial in aero now, sort of makes me wish I deferred by 5/6 years...

    I'm confused, are the programme application date different? Mine doesnt show up on the list of offered courses so I've been assuming it's not open yet...
