    I really hope so! It felt so hostile though... They asked me really hard questions and a lot of questions as well. I really want an offer, Imperial is my top choice
    Don't worry, they laughed at me and made some sarcastic remarks but again it was fine. As long as you stayed calm though and answered the best you could, it should be fine.

    Anybody that have submitted their A level certificates into Imperial, do they update the offer on track? And after how long?

    Yeah, they updated mine on the same day as I submitted them at about 10:30pm.

    It was really weird... The atmosphere was quite hostile and I got asked so many questions! But then the medical student complimented me in the end which I found a bit weird. They said "you'll hear in 2 weeks" which made me a bit worried as everyone else on here hears after about a week
    it is standard for them to say the 2 weeks.. so no need to worry about that.. and from my experience if they compliment you, you got in..!! be positive.. i remember being so disappointed after the interview because i wa over analysing everything and felt i could have done better and so on.. it turned out to be fine..!!

    It was actually the medic student that complimented me on my panel, he said I am "clearly a very well rounded person" so idk if that really counts or not. Thank you though! Hope mine turns out to be fine as well

    Dont think I answered the first question very well, but the rest seemed fine. There werent any sarcastic remarks but the woman in front of me kept smirking at me. They did smile at the end...idk Im probably overanalysing (probably=definitely).

    Thank you guys, I certainly feel a lot better now

    Just to let everyone know I phoned up student finance, they told me that imperial has yet to update their course database for medicine. After phoning imperial about the issue they said I should send them an email (bad reception apparently) so I think it should be solved pretty soon.

    Lol I got worried at one point an wondered if imperial never really did medicine

    Yeah today at 4.30, even though my interview was meant to be at 4. Ugh I dont know, everyone else was saying how chilled theirs was and mine was really intense and they asked really hard questions. They weren't really critical or anything and they didnt insult me or make sarcastic comments, they just probed me really hard and kept on asking me questions

    They weren't massively weird, they were all about medicine but I felt there wasn't much I could say in response to them and they were quite strange medicine/work experience related questions. I also found it weird that they asked me about my non-science GCSE subjects. Ah well, nothing I can do about it now.
    Thank you!

    Ok I have my interview on wednesday and I am panicking SO MUCH.

    Any ideas on hoe to calm down..? And do they ask you questions regarding your sort of knowledge of biology?? And did anyone get quizzed on recent medical related articles rather than given a scenario and asked to elaborate on their opinion?

    Sorry to sound repetitive and thank you

    No stop worrying! My interview was really nice, no science questions or anything and they are trying to see if you are a well rounded person so just be natural and I'm sure you'll be fine, its only about ten muinetes long so they dont really have time for much more. Also they pretty much list the questions they will ask on their website so make sure you have an example of how you have worked well in a team and cope with stress etc..
