    Yeah as you say, more offers than places, maybe it's because a lot go to Oxbridge as a firm and imperial is their insurance. There's also those that don't meet the grades.
    I'm pretty certain that Imperial doesn't give out two offers for every place it has!

    They have 70-80 places right? So maybe offer just over 100 places? I don't know but they don't do clearing either so I don't know how they ensure all the places are taken.

    Regardless, there's no point worrying about statistics. Just do your best

    It's sort of reconstructed from different sources. Last year, there were just over 4 applications per place. According to the ESE Dept's website, they interview around 50% of applicants. So therefore, around 50% of the people with interviews must get in. Probably a bit higher than that since they'll give out more offers than places but I'd be surprised if it were much higher than 50%.
    i dont get u wat do u mean by 4 applications per place ??

    Last year, four people applied to Imperial for every space they had available. So about a quarter of people who apply will get offers from Imperial.

    If and only if you attain the grades that your offer is conditional on.

    Pretty sure it is a legally binding offer so they must take you on if you meet the grades. If not then it should be

    From my interview experiences so far, there's not really a lot you can prepare other than the obvious "Why Geology", "Why University X", etc. It'll probably be a very informal event and they'll try their best to make you feel at ease. I really wouldn't worry too much, make sure those questions above are answered and reread your personal statement to make sure that you know what you're talking about. I'm sure you'll be fine and well done for your three offers!

    There's no dress code. When I was there most people were dressed pretty smartly but it was all very very informal. I don't think it really matters what you wear to be honest but if you want to fit in, you might want to wear something smartish.
