    Non-deferred (Oct 2011) students will pay the ~£3000 fees,
    and deferred (Oct 2012) students will pay the ~£9000 fees.

    Don't worry about being OT, reading previous posts you'll see yours was one of the more related ones being made :rolleyes:

    Conditional offer for Physics!
    They have classified my fee status as overseas though... whereas I'm Italian
    You should contact them ASAP for them to correct the error. The sooner the better, although I don't think it is that urgent, better to be on the safe side.

    Me too Congrats!

    It's quite annoying though as my email doesn't state the offer and because it's not on track yet I can't find out Do you know what most people have been offered this year?

    If you're applying for Biology then I think most people here got AAA or AAB

    One of my friends was predicted 44 IB point and the other was predicted 5A*s at A-level (with a 96% average in UMS at AS).
    They applied for Mechanical Engineering and both got rejected.

    Luckily for one of them, he has an offer from Cambridge but for the other... well I think it was unfair on him - What are Imperial looking for?

    Wow that is rather shocking really!
    One thing though, Imperial places a lot of emphasis on your extra curricular activities to see you've got more to you than your academia. And I remember reading somewhere on the Imperial website that they pay a lot of importance to a strong reference.
    And apart from that, Mech Eng is ridiculously competitive anyway.

    Judging from the cases I've encountered, Cambridge are looking for good exam technique while Imperial are looking for subject aptitude.

    NOOOO STOP NEGREPPING IT BURNS IT BURNS IT BURNS :rolleyes:

    EDIT: @Nikita.
    How do you think Imperial would test subject aptitude? From what I've heard their personal statements were very good, so I'm sure their interest in their subjects shone through. I would have thought Cambridge weren't solely interested about exam technique since they interview - but I could be totally wrong!

    Well I can believe the extra curricular activities because when I went to meet an admissions tutor at Imperial he was very keen to know what extra curriculars I had donem especially my music, because he himself was a musician. He seemed to keep emphasising that Imperial wasn't just a place for "brainbox/nerdy types"
    I did guess that Mech Eng was very competitive I just wondered how two people with pretty perfect grades were rejected... It was just shocking to see. Both are two of the smartest people I know. Unfortunately, I guess it happens

    Judging from the cases I've encountered, Imperial are looking to ensure that their university remains eternally a huge sausage fest.

    Oh, I just discovered why you think Cambridge admissions aren't based on aptitude.

    Correct. Does top 4 in country not count as aptitude?

    Lol, I'm just chuckling at your angst, and at how much spin you are trying to put on your rejection.
    Consider yourself my clown.
