    Yes, I recieved my offer for MEng Computing this morning after an informal acceptance on Friday.

    42/45 IB points with 776 in Math, Physics and Economics respectively.

    The condition is savage but thankfully no STEP/AEA/JEE!
    Congrats on the offer! May I ask what your predicted grades were?

    Rejected 10:22 for both computing and JMC. Now I have collected 4 rejections (including my most preferred choice from Hong Kong). I guess I will be a sailor in Australia after I graduate.

    Anyone took the online test? Is studying C1 and C2 enough? Or is C3 and C4 covered as well?

    Were the questions simple or complex C1/C2 style questions? and also did you find yourself in a time crunch by the end of the 45 minutes?

    I found it simple although I don't do A Levels (I do CBSE).
    Yes I did find myself in a time crunch because it is tough to input the answers using parenthesis

    Ah ok, thank you!
    Was your format the online one or PDF? And a level you mean C1 and C2 only right? Not C3 or C4? I'm sorry for the frequent questions I'm just concerned.

    Ah ok , got it. And no computing related questions right?

    Hopefully the test goes smoothly and we receive offers.

    Thanks for your help!!!

    On the day of your online test. You will receive 2 tests instead of 1. The first test is to familiarize yourself with the test environment. I will show you how to input answers and how to use pi ad other functions.

    The 2nd test is the actual test.

    Well I don't know if everyone took a different test from me but at least one of the questions requires C3 knowledge, but it's stuff you will almost definitely be familiar with.

    I think comparing the test to C1/C2 is pretty unfair. The questions are completely different in style. I would say in difficulty they are similar to but maybe a bit easier than the older MAT papers. And as for MAT, revising C1/C2 (or pretty much anything tbh) is probably not going to help.

    The problem solving question assumes no prior knowledge.

    Overall, I think most (if not all) Imperial applicants will find the questions accessible. And many applicants will probably find them easy.
