    WELL DONE FOR YOUR OFFER!

    If they've made you an offer and it says something like 'Conditional Offer' on UCAS rather than just an email from them saying they'll give you an offer they can't change it. If one of the conditions is getting a certain MAT result and you don't get that then you don't meet their conditions and you won't be accepted. If it doesn't mention the MAT at all then you can fail it and it won't make a difference.

    (Unless you don't apply through UCAS? I'm not sure how it works for international students, sorry!)
    Thank you As I applied through UCAS (most international students have to for most UK universities - sometimes, US Common Applications are also allowed, but that's the only exception I know of), got the offer there (Imperial did not acknowledge it per mail/letter yet) and without a MAT condition, it appears like I should be fine.

    I have received a conditional offer on UCAS from Imperial College last week in Mathematics with Statistics (2/11 just after MAT test) - 16/20 overall scientific French baccalaureate (A*) with 16 in maths (A*) and 15 in physics-chemistry (A) without interview! I am quite happy with it! I have also received an offer from King's College London asking 15/20 overall (A) with 14 in maths (lower grade for A, 13 being B). Now waiting Cambridge's interview invitations - or not -, UCL and LSE decisions (I want them now, even if they are unsuccessful!)...

    Last year I scored 19 (A*), 19 (A*) and 20 (A*) grades in early examinations of the French Baccalaureate (French essay, French oral, science research respectively ; subjects we sit before to take "only" 8 tests in last year). I do not know my predictive grades for final examinations (like A-level), but they may be superior or equal to 16 (A*). IELTS: scored 7.5 with lower grade being 6.5 (writing) and the others 7.5.

    Hello everyone, I just received a conditional offer from Imperial for Mathematics with Mathematical Physics. However, as it's quite early, they probably haven't taken my MAT results into account for their admissions decision. As I'm an EU student not really acquainted with the details of the UK application system, I am wondering the following: Could my MAT result still change anything about their decision? Or are they bound to their offer now that they've made it? Thank you for your insight!
    Very nice! I hope you'll be doing as great as Curie in physics! What are the conditions they ask you? Don't worry for MAT, I've passed it too; I do not think I did pretty well but I did not failed it (maybe 50-70). Furthermore they can not change an offer as long as they do it on UCAS and not private e-mail.

    I thought they reserve the right to change, withdraw and give out an offer at any time? Last year, they randomly increased the grade requirements on medicine offers to A*AA, and chemistry offers to A*A*A.

    Well, they can withdraw and then make a new offer, but that sounds unusual; isn't it?

    AS Levels only go as high as A's even if you get 100% so I think you mean A, not A* for achieved AS equivalent. A* is only for the full A Level.

    You must be right! UK high school system is quite hard to understand for foreigners ;-).

    Dear Mathematics applicants

    Since we've done the mat exam now, do you know when offers will be given out???
    So far in this thread I've only found two other Maths applicant with an offer , one got his on nov' 4th for Maths and Physics, the other for Maths and Stats the day of the MAT and I got an unconditional offer nov' 3rd for Mathematics with a year in Europe.
    My offer came as a suprise as I applied last year and was rejected..
    What did you apply for?

    Intended Subject: Chemistry (maybe with molecular physics)

    GCSE's:
    Chemistry - A*
    Physics - A*
    Biology - A*
    Maths - A*
    English Lang - A*
    English Lit - A
    French - A
    Latin - A
    Art - A
    Geography -A
    rlly anoyed bcs i think they might hold me back, and in english lit, french and art i was only 1-2 marks of the A* >

    also an A (highest grade) in FSMQ

    A-Levels: Chemistry, Physics, Maths, Further Maths

    Goal A2 Results: A*A*A (will probably only do FM to as? but not sure, think i could get an A in FM A2)
    So I reckon I will get an A* in Maths, and am hoping for an A* in Chemistry. Ideally, i want one in Physics, but I'm not sure...will have to wait until I'm further into the course!

    Extras:
    Gold in Junior, Intermediate and senior maths challenge
    Gold crest award
    EES
    EPQ? possibly
    Attended chemistry lectures
    Chemistry work experience at the research labs
    Chemistry Olympiad (will take in Jan and also next Jan)
    L6 Cambridge Chem Olympiad
    Science ambassador for school (bit like a prefect)
    also hope to be prefect next year
    on top of all that, I spend 16 hours a week at rowing training - will sport achievements strengthen my application :/ lol doubt it but worth a try (i.e represent gb)

    Imperial is my dream Uni, its perfect for me and I really want o go. If i dont get in I will be very upset. Just gonna have to work hard What do you guys think of my application? What can I do to strengthen it?

    If you have specified in your personal statement most of your extra academic records, there are no reasons they deny your application! They do look to sports; but rowing is a plus for Oxbridge applications ; I don't know if there's an Imperial rowing team.

    Thank you, congratulations to you too! My conditions are 1.5/1.0 overall in the Abitur and 14/15 points in my advanced courses, which is surprisingly achievable. I'd also hope for my MAT to be somewhere in that range, but it seems quite improbable to me that they should have taken the results into account that fast, so it doesn't really matter.

    By the way, I just noticed that we seem to have applied to the same unis (except for LSE) - I'm still waiting for all three to reply, though

    I applied for mech eng on the 15th of october, and haven't received an interview response yet. The wait is killing me! So much so, that I've created a student room account just to ask the following question haha!

    Should I email/call the Imperial admissions officer to check up on the progress of my application?
