    I applied in early October...and got my offer in Dec =D 38 in total IB points with 6 and 6 in Bio and Chem.

    Don't worry about the it! I'm sure that they are still giving out offers!
    ....
    I don't mean to hijack the thread, but since I'm an international Applicant and I'm living in some other country, I've never been to Imperial in my whole life... Is there anyone who went for open day/visited Imperial before?? What do you think about the course and the department?
    I remember a thread about how Biochemists are really unhappy about Imperial (the Facebook group!). That really Freaks me out!
    I really want to firm Imperial but before that I need to make sure whether the course worth the money (you know how expensive Imperial is..especially for international applicants! )

    I applied in early December for Biochem and have yet to receive an offer from Warwick or Imperial.

    As Big Head said already, don't worry too much about it. If your application were not good you'd have been denied a place already. Imperial is notorious for giving out some offers as late as March.
    I'm a biochem applicant too, btw, and they didn't even bother sending me an email to confirm receipt of my application... Would be nice to get an offer, though.

    Don't worry, Imperial is known for being one of the slowest unis when it comes to giving out their decisions.xD I applied in October and only heard back around january ish.
    As far as I know, offers are given out in little "pocketfuls" each time(and sometimes quite randomly too). I know it's hard to not worry when you haven't heard but try not to think about it too much if you can. =] The decision will come sooner or later!

    (and agreed...an email/mail to confirm things would've been nice.... ).

    EDIT:
    Just received an email regarding open days and saying congrats, "you have been made an offer ....". Hehe, I found this quite funny as their reply was updated on my UCAS track a month ago.XD(why such a long gap between offer confirmation and update lol. :p:).

    Ahem, anyways, just another evidence that Imperial doesn't seem to be "very quick", good luck for those who're still waiting! =]

    UCAS Number: **********

    Our Ref: ********

    Dear Mr. *******,

    Thank you for your application to Imperial College London to study the below:
    C700 Biochemistry (BSc 3YFT) in 2010/2011

    Your application to the College will receive careful consideration. You can check on the status of your application at any time on UCAS Track at www.ucas.ac.uk

    As I am sure you are aware, admission to the College is very competitive and we receive a large number of applications from excellent candidates. In order to ensure that all applicants receive equal consideration, it is often not possible to make a final decision on your application until the end of January.

    Whilst the formal decision on your application will be communicated to UCAS, other communication will normally be sent to you by email. It is important, therefore, that you ensure that you add '@imperial.ac.uk' to your list of approved senders and that you check your inbox on a regular basis. If you change your email address, postal address or telephone number, please update this information on UCAS Track.

    If you have any questions about the application process or wish to view other admissions information, please visit our website: www.imperial.ac.uk/registry/admissions. You can also search our Frequently Asked Questions database - www.imperial.ac.uk/registry/enquiries where we have tried to anticipate many of the questions you may have about admission and the College in general. If you can't find what you're looking for, you can use the Ask a Question option.

    If you are an international student who has questions about studying in the UK please view our pages for international students www.imperial.ac.uk/international.

    Thank you for your interest in studying at Imperial. I wish you every success in your application to the College.

    Yours sincerely

    Dr Andrew Homer
    Senior Assistant Registrar (Admissions)


    Been over a week now since the end of January so was just getting a little worried. Also have seen a couple of peeps on here with offers. Anyways just have to be a little more patient and wait to see what happens. Good luck to everyone else who is still waiting for an offer.
