    How does scholarship work for Imperial? Is it based on interview performance and have they already been given out?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I think it's based on interview performance and then those that are selected have to write some sort of science based essay...?

    It's based on interview (And academic prowess in extension) performance. They tell you if you are applicable in the offer letter and you end up writing around a 500 word essay on a topic that is decided and dished out around the end of may, beginning of June time. You then have like 6 weeks to write and submit the completed essay to see you will get the scholarship.
    This is the info i've gleaned from talking to them as i'm leaving the country for 3-4 months at the beginning of June and I got one of these scholarship applications! Gonna have a week or two to write it .

    I was recommended post interview and managed to get a scholarship for this year! Wrote my essay over the course of 3 days, whilst on a tropical island. Completely doable!

    I don't think you'll need a tutor if you memorise the correct documents from this page:

    Just wondering if anyone else with a rejection has asked for any feedback from Imperial?

    Got rejected a while ago (10th March) but am thinking that admissions will have calmed down enough for them to be able to reply. Even though I will be going to medical school next year I really wanted to go to Imperial sooo badly I want to know just how badly my interview went :/ I knew I hadn't got in the moment I walked out as my answers were terrible. I just want to know how terrible they were....

    Sorry to hear that, I really hope you can reflect on what you have done and improve on that! Are you all set on imperial or just medicine (for other university?)

    I was set on Imperial since I first visited it last year. Got offers from Kings and Leicester so accepted them (in that order) as it would have been a waste to turn then down to try for Imperial again when I was rejected post interview. Maybe it would have gone better had I not been last in and didn't have to wait 4 hours but we'll never know!

    Has anybody tried to track their DBS application on the website? I have tried this and they can't recognise my number.
    Anybody else with the same dilemma?

    Have you firmed because they don't send them off until you have done so
    Also from my experience with DBS In the past they take ages
