    Hi I have got an inivtation for an interview on the 25th of November. Has anyone got any idea what to expect?, I read somewhere that they can either ask you no mechanic questions only general ones or actually ask mechanic mathy, physicy reviews. Anyone had there interviews yet?

    Please help Thanks!

    I'm in the same boat. I've asked someone who does MechEng and did get technical questions, but looking at past threads it seems pretty rare that people get a difficult interview. As long as you know exactly why you want to do it and know your PS very well, you'll probably be fine.

    The acceptance rate of people invited for interview is just over 90%, which calms my nerves a bit.

    I really don't know what to think of mine..I got some pretty simple questions but still needed quite a bit of help to solve them 😂 Not optimistic about an offer at all. What about you?

    It's okay well done on completing your interview. As long as it wasn't a disaster I reckon you're good

    Really? Mine went quite well id say. About 10 mins of C3 maths questions, managed to do the all 😁. Then just got roasted on ps for 20 mins lol. So overall not too bad!

    But don't worry about it, escpecially since we were an early group. I spoke to some imperial students and they said if youre called up early you'll stand a better chance!

    Also... I don't want to sound sexist, but Imperial sorta need girls to fill ratios so i recon that definately helps too (only 5 out of 40 people there were girls!)

    Congrats on your interview going well. And I really don't think that my being a girl will make a difference. They don't need more girls - it'd be better, but all they need is a group of students who will do well on the course, and if they don't think I will then I doubt any exceptions will be made

    Yes, the admissions tutor said 10 days!! So nervous. I reckon if we get offers, we'll all get them on the same day - they don't exactly have many to get through

    I received an offer for Mech Eng at 10.10pm today on UCAS don't worry guys I think the email are sent out in batches since I had my interview on the same day as Genius10!!

    I am so happy but have to work really hard on my subjects as my offers are AAAA. I didn't think my interview went terribly well and honestly I felt deflated and sad for the past week but hey I got an offer and the long trip to London paid off.

    So good luck everyone and I hope you get the results you are looking for.
