    Hi guys I have a bit of a question, I have applied for maths at Imperial and will be doing the MAT on the 2nd November. There's not long left but unfortunately, I have not been able to prepare as I would have liked because I have had to have surgery today and these 3 weeks I been unable to focus on my studies(pain/surgery). I am not trying to make excuses as I have done some practice and I don't do well enough I know that I am just not good enough. But do you think it's worthwhile potentially emailing the mathematics department to potentially explain my issue?
    That is a major extenuating circumstance! It's not making excuses, the pain and struggle of undergoing surgery is no joke. Maybe ask your school for advice on what to do .i.e. whether you should contact Imperial or not

    Thanks for the advice, I'll contact my school and see if there is something they can do(contact imperial and verify it). Effectively cut my preparation time down to 2 weeks while also recovering from surgery. I guess I just have to get my head down and practise.

    I recieved an offer last year for Chemistry which I eventually turned down on results day after getting in - if you have any questions about the interviews etc, I'll be happy to answer them.

    Why did you turn Imperial down? Oxbridge offer?

    Thank you, it was challenging as it was my first time doing something like that. Looking back, I think it was a nice equal mix between my personal statement and academic questions. The whole day overall was quite relaxed and chill. I spent most of the time outside of the interviews talking to the other applicants about casual things like what London nightlife was like and all that which I think definitely relaxed me before the interview. I didn't read much other than How Chemical Reactions Happen but that's a standard book really and pretty much everyone there had a copy with them, it was quite amusing really hahaha
