    Guys I'm so worried - I applied (for the MEng) absolutely agggeessss ago but I haven't got an interview yet. I emailed them in December and they said they just had loads of applicants to process but I'm worried that my PS didn't have any impressive CS accomplishments or that they somehow got a hold of my ****ty MAT score for Oxford. Don't think only doing 3A2s is the reason either - they've already sent offers to people with only 3A2s already.

    GCSE: 10A*s 1A. AS: AAAA in Maths, F.Maths, Physics and Chemistry. Predicted A2: A*A*A in Maths, F.Maths and Physics.

    i am in the exact same position as you my ps is not even tailored to computing, but i really want an interview to express my passion for computing to compensate for my lack of passion for computing.

    Which course did you apply to? And i hope that we both get an interview, maybe they have just pooled our application so that they compare to other potential applicants

    Just edited it in, applied for the MEng Computing. I reckon it's because: 1. our applications aren't good enough and they plan on rejecting us later; or 2. our applications are alright (on the boundary) and they're waiting till they get all the applications in to compare them to then choosing the best of worst if you know what I mean; or 3. they have indeed got a tonne of applications to go through and are processing them in a weird order, which I kinda doubt since I applied like mid October

    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?
    I was talking about the majority of people beacuse like you said it is not true for all of them.
    I am currently in year 11 and I am looking forward to do CompSci at Imperial so I was just reading all the relevant stuff on TSR to aid me with my A-Level choices and I made this 'interesting' observation which has now confused me again.
    I am planning to do Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computer Science outside school

    Hopefully it is number 2, but i think they should give us an interview because we do meet the minimum entry requirements and i think they should assess us fairly as they might find out things about us that is not stated on our ps

    I have pretty much the exact same GCSEs, AS results (swap Chemistry for Politics) and predicted A2 grades as you. My CS accomplishments were just some simple websites and API stuff in Javascript, literally nothing too impressive but my interview's on Wednesday.

    I'm sure you'll hear back, they release them in batches before each interview day. Next couple are in February so I think you'll likely hear back a bit before then, probably sometime after this Wednesday.

    Good luck!

    I just got an interview (3rd Feb) for BEng Computing - honestly did not expect that considering I got AS: AAAA (mind you i got AABB in yr 12 and retook those B's to get an A in yr 13) and A2:AAB (i'm a gap year and retaking some A2's this yr and predicted A*AA).

    My grades are probably some of the lowest (for Imperial Computing standards) and yet I managed to cop an interview ahahahaha my personal statement must've baaaaanged

    I can't find it now but when I looked at a staff calendar a while back they had listed one more interview day in the beginning of March. Maybe this date has been scrapped or being used as a backup?
