    I remember someone posting a link to the bands (from last year) a couple of weeks ago.. Imperial usually gives out about 600 interviews so maybe Imperial knew that those applicants with average BMAT and strong applications will definitely be invited as maybe not many people made the cut-off in all the sections..

    People who got the invites on the student room all have 4.6+ in sections 1 and 2, and 3B+ in section 3, but till now no one with a very high BMAT score has said anything about getting an interview so it makes sense to assume that imperial started from band 3
    No logic in interviewing band 3 first as it would be unfair and a waste of interview time as most would get rejected. My bmat is 7.2 7.2 and 4.5a and I received the email as well.

    But tsr is not representative of everyone. Just because we dont know of any high bmat scorers who got interviews on tsr, doesnt mean there arent any...
    to start from band 3 defies logic. Why would u start by handing out interviews to the lower end of bmat scorers rather than the higher end?! They must be taking into account other factors with more weight than previous yrs (eg GCSE, AS, A2 (predicted or completed, ps and reference). or mayb its cuz avg bmat scores to imperial have fallen by aloottt since previous yrs, but its highly unlikely they will fall by this much. The only standing thing that makes sense is the fact that imperial are using other parts of the application with a greater weight. If this starting from band 3 has actually happened then imperial have lost their mind...
    (I haven't got an interview but my other stats were quite gd (bmat i got 4.6 5.4 3A ) and my reference i think was gd, ps im not so sure abt)
    anyways, lets c wt the email from imperial says l8r on!

    Congrats! It looks like interviews by banding is no more. It appears as long as you meet the minimum bmat requirements you get an interview. If you don't mind me asking what were your stats?

    Guys is the link working for anyone!?!? I tried to book an interview but it said "this survey has been removed"

    And I just called up admissions and they said they screwed it up again and there's a chance we don't actually have an interview
