    I don't think you can assume that yet...still time.

    What are your grades/bmat?

    11 A*s and 5 As at GCSE
    4 As at AS

    But my BMAT is probably my fall down at the moment, S1 4.4 S2 4.0 and S3 3.5A

    I am no expert but suggest you look at the boundaries for the different bands last year for bmat. Your 4.0 may take you into band 3 and hopefully you will get an interview.

    Hopefully, they are not doing bands or emphasis on bmat this year and you get the interview your other grades deserve

    End of January from last years thread ( this is when they stopped sending out interviews) but you have to email them and they'll only give it to you If you don't have an interview ( if I remember rightly)

    I just did a quick search and came across this:

    As such, Imperial have an absolute BMAT cut-off point, which changes slightly every year based on the performance of the year group. For 2013 entry, you needed 4.7 in section 1, 4.6 in section 2, and 2.5C in section 3. That translates to around 50% in each section.

    It looks as if your BMAT scores in section 1 and 2 maybe on the low side .However, do remember it changes from year to year ...and this year may be lower...

    45 minutes late
    Took about half an hour
    OMG same lol my interview on the 7th was delayed by 50 MINUTES. SOOO annoying cos I had calmed myself nicely and then the wait stressed me a bit again, and also I had planned my pissing schedule so the wait made me debate whether to frantically run to the toilet at the risk of missing my call to interview #stress
