    Someone help me out please? I remember last year the Imperial offer was AAAC if you took four A levels. Now they've revised the standard offer to A*AA, so will the offer for those taking 4 A levels now be A*AAC or just A*AA like other unis? Thanks and congrats to anyone with an offer/interview!
    Hiya I take four and I just got offered on three - A*AA

    I don't think so, The minimum requirement they say is AAA, however the typical offer is A*AA. This technically means that they look at applications from people that have AAA but people in year 13 would get a condition of obtaining A*AA.

    Do we need to take any documentation for interviews?

    I can't seem to find any information on the interview email ICL previously sent me as it only had a 4 hr window slot before it expired.
    Not received any other information since then. Can anyone direct me?

    I received a confirmation of my booking a slot entitled 'Interview confirmation'. I'll paste it in: 'please ensure that you arrive no later than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled interview to allow for completion of registration. When attending your interview you must bring with you one of the following forms of official photo-identification: your passport, identity card or driving licence. Please note that failure to provide one of the above at interview may result in a delay to communicating the outcome of your interview until the ID issue is resolved.' Hope that helps

    I would imagine they'll honour their AAA offer, seeing as that's what was required in the year you sat your exams- also you have a 4th A which can't hurt right?!

    From what I read about the selection process, they first look at your grades or predicted grades for year 13 and if those fit their criteria then they go on to look at bmat and then decide to offer you and interview, So i believe if you have an interview, that means they don't mind that you have 4 As.

    "We make our initial assessment based on predicted A-Level grades, rather than AS results. All applicants who are predicted our offer requirements automatically proceed to the second stage of selection, which is the BMAT. Candidates have now been ranked according to their BMAT scores and we will be sending interview invitations from mid-December onwards. "

    Hope that helps

    On page 63 someone said: "Getting an interview means you are something like 75% there". I think that percentage was about how likely you were to get at offer after the interview not how much science will be asked.

    I'm a gap year student as well and I have an interview tomorrow. What time is yours?
