    Ahh did you get an offer from Oxford then? And Imperial's the only one uni that's actually needed a technical interview (Warwick, Southampton, Birmingham etc.) all just gave out offers. So I'm tempted to do some Maths problems and stuff before, sketch sin(x)/x and that kinda thing

    Yeah I did but yeah that sounds like a good idea. I think I'm deffo going to revise over my personal statement because it might be awkward if they ask me about it and I don't know anything at the interview. I'm not super bothered about it though because imperial usually offer quite high so I dont think ill be firming, but good luck anyways.

    I just read all the replies in this thread :bebored:
    I then realised that most of the people who replied that they got an interview havent done computer science A Level.
    To rephrase - most of the people who did CompSci A-Levels did not post of getting an interview.
    Does this mean that Imperial has a less preference to people who do CompSci at A-Levels?
    Sorry if I am just sounding dumb! :lol:

    I didn't do computer science a level and I still haven't got an interview
    I did chemistry, maths and further maths
    A*A*A respectively (Already Achieved)
    I haven't heard back from them, I'm fearing rejection
    Wbu, what a levels do/did you do?

    If you have applied for it, you should've got an e-mail titled "taster courses" which shows a table showing the taster course(s) you applied to. For the Computer Science at Imperial one (depends which taster course you applied to) it said "We will let you know the outcome of your application within 5 working days after Wednesday 20 January 2016."

    I got an offer already though so I guess it's different? Interesting that you were given a date to hear a decision by though

    Maybe you're thinking of a different course? I applied and got into the same Computer Science taster course last year and it was the same system.
