    I am slightly worried about the interviewers discussing my bmat essay. I have since composed an entirely new argument as the examples I used in my essay were absolutely terrible and made no sense. Will they ask me to elaborate and discuss my reasons for choosing those examples in my essay during the interview? Should I discuss my new argument?

    Don't worry. They know that your BMAT essay probably isn't your best piece of writing so they will be up for your new argument.

    To anyone who has an offer, what do you think you did in your interview that helped you to get it?
    Just be calm, try and be as composed as you can, come across and warm and friendly and remember to be polite when you arrive and before you leave.

    Hi! I got my offer yesterday! But I was in exactly the same position as you. My BMAT essay was a shocking 2A (so I've already been rejected from imperial). What I did the night before my interview was to literally write a long model answer to the question, so when my interviewer asked what I would have liked to have written if I had another chance I had ideas instantly. I think that preparation saved me.

    I had my interview last Weds. A few people have heard back by I haven't heard anything. I'm not sure how it normally works...

    Did other people who had interviews on Wednesday all hear on different days the week after their interview?

    Fingers crossed

    I'm sure it's random the order they give out offers, since you're not competing against anyone else and just need to 'pass' the interview it probably just depends on when it's processed.

    The people from previous Wednesdays heard anywhere from the Tuesday to the following Monday I think? Fingers crossed for you tho!
