    I noticed there wasn't one of these for Imperial (if there is, sorry I couldn't find it, please direct me).

    Entry requirements
    We welcome students from all over the world and consider all applicants on an individual basis. If your qualifications are not listed here, please see our academic requirements by country page, which gives the minimum entry requirements for a range of international qualifications.Below you will find our academic and non-academic entry requirements.

    A/AS-levels
    The minimum entry requirements for this course is AAA + AS-level at grade B overall, to be achieved in the same sitting.Biology and Chemistry are required, therefore if one of these subjects is not taken at A2 level, it must be taken at AS level and a grade B is required.

    For candidates offering four A-levels our normal offer is AAAC. Grades obtained in resit examinations are not normally considered, however resit candidates who believe they have extenuating circumstances are invited to contact the School of Medicine prior to application at [email protected] ac.uk.

    Vocational A and AS-levels are not acceptable and General Studies will not be accepted at any level.

    GCSE (or equivalent)
    All applicants must have the following subjects at GCSE level, at grades AAABB or above (in any order):
    • Biology (or Human Biology)
    • Chemistry
    • English Language
    • Mathematics (or Additional Mathematics or Statistics)
    • Physics
    The Science double award or Science plus Additional Science may substitute all sciences at GCSE.EPQ: Please note that an EPQ cannot be used as part of the AS and A2 Level entry requirements.

    BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT)
    All candidates applying to the six-year course must take the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) in the year of application in order to be considered for interview.You are required to register with BMAT assessment centres prior to the test. Please refer to the Admissions Testing Service for key dates and additional information. Candidates who would like extenuating circumstances considered for their performance in BMAT must adhere to the procedure found here.Invitations to an interview will be based on:
    • the content of your UCAS application
    • your performance in all three sections of BMAT
    BMAT cut-off scores are calculated each year, as a result of ranked candidate BMAT scores versus number of expected interview sessions. As a result, the absolute BMAT cut-off changes each year. However, the BMAT cut-off scores from previous admissions cycles may be used as a guide.For 2015 entry, the minimum scores required were:
    • a score of 4.3 in section 1
    • a score of 4.4 in section 2
    • a score of 2.3 and grade B in section 3

    Do you know what the average BMAT score for each section is for the average applicant who gets an interview?

    As applications are now in full swing, I think now is the time to try and revive the thread!!

    My stats:
    GCSE - 7A*s 3As 1C
    AS - AAAA
    A2 predictions - A*A*A*
    (UKCAT: 740, band 3)

    I'm applying to Imperial as I really like the traditional nature of the course, but with a lot of patient contact, and I love the feeling of the uni - it's all science, which makes me ridiculously happy. I'm also applying to UCL, Bristol and St George's.

    You don't need to go on a course, so don't worry. I went on one when I did the BMAT and found it pretty useless in all honesty.

    Use the BMAT guide for the sciences. Section 2 is very time pressured and you'll be asked to apply your knowledge well so it's all about practising questions too as much as you can.

    Yup, I have! It's only been two weeks but I'm really enjoying it so far.

    It's nothing to worry about. Both times when I applied, they came through in October (on different dates each time) but they really don't mean much.
